The journey to the Mekong Delta from Ho Chi Minh City takes about two hours by car, and it’s best to start early in the morning to make the most of your time there. You can book a tour or arrange for a private car to take you there. If you choose the latter, be sure to negotiate the price before you start the journey.

When you arrive, take a boat ride along the winding canals to explore the floating markets. These markets are an incredible sight to behold, with boats piled high with fresh fruits, vegetables, and other produce. You can even try some of the delicious local street food from the vendors on the boats.

If you have more time, consider staying in one of the traditional homestays in the area. You’ll get a chance to experience the local culture and way of life, and also get to see the beautiful scenery of the Delta up close.
