Mekong Delta

Introduction to Mekong Delta

The Mekong Delta acts as a complex of tributaries in southwest Vietnam that connects Ho Chi Minh City with Cambodia. The river reaches VN after flowing through Myanmar, Thailand, and China, which reveals why its water is murky to some extent.

The delta region provides more than half of Vietnam's fish and rice, demonstrating its importance to Vietnamese economic development and cuisine. The life of people in the Mekong Delta depends on the water, from the well-known Cai Rang floating market to large agricultural businesses. The region also grows different fruits and flowers and raises various cattle.

Mekong Delta Tourism

Many visitors believe they can see enough of the Mekong Delta in a single-day journey from Ho Chi Minh City, but there's a lot more to it than Can Tho floating market or pagodas. This region is home to diverse ecosystems that warrant more than an afternoon's visit. You can start your Vietnam family tours with the following suggestions: 

Can Tho

The Cai Rang floating market is located in Can Tho (the biggest city in the Mekong Delta region). Thousands of boats are crammed with various types of fruit that you could hardly ever imagine.

The good thing about Can Tho is that you may have the best of both worlds: excellent accommodations in an elegant Mekong Delta Hotel in the city center, as well as convenient day, trips to explore charming agricultural settlements.

Cai Rang floating market

Soc Trang

This city may not offer many showy attractions, but those who prefer a more pleasant atmosphere will fall in love with the calm sensations here, particularly in the rice paddies surrounding the city.

If you're on your Mekong Delta Tour, don't miss the Oc Om Boc event around November or December.

My Tho

Every day, hundreds, if not thousands, of tour groups visit this city, making it the most must-visited city in the Mekong Delta. Not to mention its nationally acclaimed floating market, there are also stunning pagodas and local orchards to explore in My Tho, just nearly two hours by bus from Ho Chi Minh City.

Vinh Trang Pagoda

Sao Beach

The beach features crystal clear waters, silver sand, and swaying palm trees. The beautiful beach gets its name from the Vietnamese term for "starfish" because the seas used to be teeming with white starfish at sunset.

Mekong Delta Weather

In general, the Mekong Delta has two seasons: dry season and rainy season. We will go into detail on the advantages and disadvantages of visiting the Mekong Delta at each season

Dry Season: December to April

During this time, Vietnam gets a respite from the rain. While there will be some rain throughout this season, you can enjoy a brighter blue sky, vibrant green sceneries, and lower humidity levels. Also, the average temperature in the dry season ranges from around 22oC at night to about 32oC during the day.

This time of year is ideal for outdoor activities like cycling, hiking, and learning about local customs. If you're brave, you can attempt walking between the towns, or you can simply take a relaxing boat trip surrounded by greeneries.

Rainy Season: May to November

During the rainy season, the rain falls in short but heavy showers, usually in the afternoon, and lasts around an hour. This is the perfect time to enjoy fresh fruits grown locally, namely dragon fruit and mango. You will also benefit from low-priced tours.

Ticket costs range from 60,000 VND to 120,000 VND, based on the seats, facilities, and booking time.

Boating in Mekong Delta

By private car

This acts as the perfect choice for its convenience and comfort. It is easy for you to book a private car from your hotels in the Mekong Delta, with prices ranging around 30 dollars depending on the position, service, and car model.
