Luxury Mekong Delta Speedboat tour will bring you chance to enjoy a scenic speedboat trip through the Mekong Delta tours. Departing by boat from Ho Chi Minh City, you will explore areas of the Mekong Delta that few other tourists get to experience. You will experience the old-world river life of the Mekong, and enjoy a lesser-seen glimpse into rural Vietnam as it trundles along a slow tempo, as it has done for centuries.

In Mekong Delta, many villages and towns depend on the countless canals, tributaries and markets in the region for produce. As well as fish, produce yielded by the delta’s rich alluvial soil includes rice, sesame, peanuts, cashews, pineapples, dragon fruit and durian. As part of the tour you will visit a bustling riverside market overflowing with Delta produce, which you can sample. There will be lots interesting and colorful photos opportunities of the idyllic scenery and local people as you cruise past fields, fruit orchards and rice paddies. You will also visit a family homestead, where you will be invited to enjoy fresh coconuts and fiery Mekong whisky. Visit mekong Vietnam with Indochina tours Vietnam

In the village, your tour guide will introduce you to the house owners, who each have their own stories of life in the Mekong to share.
