Ho Chi Minh City: Mekong Delta Full-Day Speedboat Tour

1. Ho Chi Minh City: Mekong Delta Full-Day Speedboat Tour

Hamlets and busy towns are dependent on the innumerable canals, tributaries and markets in the region that overflow with fish and a variety of produce yielded by the delta’s rich alluvial soil, including rice, sesame, peanuts, cashews, pineapples, dragon fruit and durian. Enjoy countless opportunities to capture amazing photos of the scenery and local people as we cruise past buffaloes ploughing fruit orchards and rice fields.  Spend time at a family homestead, where you’ll be invited to enjoy refreshing, freshly cut coconuts and fiery Mekong whisky. Your chef will prepare many Vietnamese dishes for lunch, such as fried elephant ear fish – a Mekong Delta specialty – Vietnamese spring rolls and lemongrass chicken, served at a local pagoda or school for underprivileged children. *Vegetarian or Halal meals are also available on request. 

Full-Day Cu Chi Tunnels & Cao Dai Temple Tour by Speedboat

2. Full-Day Cu Chi Tunnels & Cao Dai Temple Tour by Speedboat

Explore the winding, underground passageways of the Cu Chi Tunnels. The Cu Chi Tunnel Historical Site Tour will include visiting an American weapons gallery, and later on, even a bullet riddled tank. You will be shown a variety of ingenious and rather brutal booby traps used by the VC. Try to discover secret entrances hidden by fake termite mounds and other creative disguises. You’ll learn everything from how the kitchens fed up to 10,000 fighters in the tunnels (and how they disguised the smoke), to how they defended the tunnels from American bombs and infiltrators. You’ll even see the huge crater formed by an American B52 bomber. An of course, you’ll be able to explore the 1 meter high tunnels themselves. These tunnels have been enlarged slightly, but it can still be a pretty claustrophobic experience – imagine living down there for months. Fortunately, there are regular exits that allow you to leave easily if you wish. The original, unchanged tunnels can also be explored, although this is certainly not for the fainthearted. At the end of the Cu Chi Tunnels tour, you will be able to fire real war era weapons including the M66 and AK47 at a firing range. Afterwards, visit the Cao Dai Temple, a unique representation of the world’s youngest and perhaps the most fascinating religion Cao Dai is a combination of Buddhism, Taoism, Catholicism and a few other religions. Founded in 1926 4 kilometers east of Tay Ninh, the Cao Dai Temple, like the religion, is a fusion of world influences. The temple is charming in its colorful, mysterious and marvellous architecture. As well as being a major center of pilgrimage, the Cao Dai Temple is also one of Vietnam’s major tourist attractions.

What people are saying about Cao Dai Temple

A great way to see life on the Mekong delta from the water as we travelled from The hustle & bustle of Saigon upstream to quiet village life away from the city. Saw local markets and temples on the way and were not taken to any areas where we saw other tourist during the whole experience. A good quality lunch and Plenty of refreshments were provided throughout the trip and our guide Hang was excellent at providing running commentary on everything we saw.

We had a great day on the delta. It was nice to walk through a market with someone that could explain everything we were looking at. Lunch was phenomenal and Henry was a great guide. Thank you!

The team who looked after us was excellent, Henri’s knowledge of each aspect of the trip first class.

This tour gives you a better insight into the workings of Vietnam. Well worth the money.

Fantastic view of the life style in Vietnam. Wonderal value as well. Thumbs up!
