Description

With Sinhbalo mekong delta tours, you explore the life in the delta region, and a cruise down its slow, shimmering waterways provides a tremendous way to experience delta life. One advantage with selecting Sinhbalo mekong delta tours is that our tours have been planned by a delta local, so we endeavor to put you in touch with the life the locals live as they live it.

One of our highlight in Mekong delta tours: A visit to Can Tho’s floating market will allow you to trade in the delta’s rich rice and fish stocks and to sample some of the lush fruit and vegetables unique to the area. The pace of delta life remains slow, and daily routines here have changed little over the centuries centuries. As you drift down its narrow waterways, the stresses of modern life will seem a world away.

Day 2: CanTho – SaiGon (Breakfast)
