Journey up the Mekong for a farmstay with a lovely local family
With its meandering waterways and flourishing farms, the Mekong Delta is a place not to be missed. Venture out through this iconic landscape and discover riverbanks dotted with coconut palms swaying in the breeze and sprawling rice fields sparkling in the sun. Be dazzled by a collage of coloured orchards, marvel at ramshackled houses on stilts and travel a waterway that bursts at the seams with boats of every conceivable size and shape. Learn about life on the Mekong Delta from local hosts, savour freshly picked fruit and gain a true appreciation of why this area is known as the ‘ricebowl of Vietnam’.
Discover local life on the delta, which can only really be appreciated through a homestay experience
Understand daily life on the lifeblood of Vietnam with visits to the islands and smaller cottage industries that keep the area buzzing
Experience delta hospitality first-hand with a warm welcome and home cooked meal from your homestay hosts
Cycle along local paths on a bike ride to the colourful market, and chat with locals while gathering supplies for lunch
You will stay in simple homestay accommodation on this trip. You’ll sleep on camp beds in a communal room, so it's mixed gender and multi-share. The actual homestay facilities can vary as we stay with several different families, but you can expect simple but very welcoming.
In order to access some of the smaller roads on Day 1, you will travel by motorised cart. Please be aware that it can get noisy.
On this trip it is possible that you will be joined by other travellers, some who may have booked on a longer trip, or even with a different company.
This short trip spends little time in Ho Chi Minh City, using it as a base from which to reach the Delta. Should you want to spend more time in Ho Chi Minh City, perhaps consider our South Vietnam Getaway, which incorporates this homestay.
