Interesting experiences that attract foreign tourists in the Mekong River Delta
Date: 08/09/2020

Catching fish in ditches or having breakfast on floating markets are popular with many foreign tourists when visiting the Mekong Delta provinces.

A wooden boat ride to explore the rivers and the lives of the locals.

Sitting on the wooden boat to get through small canals will help you easily observe the lives of the local people. If you go in the right season, the boat will take you through the orchards, you can pick fruits in the garden and enjoy them on-site.

Having breakfast at the floating market

In the midst of the immense river, slurping a hot bowl of noodles (hủ tiếu), crab rice noodle soup (bún riêu cua) or eating a piece of coconut leaf cake and drinking a glass of iced milk coffee always leave tourists a great impression and unforgettable flavors. Currently, a large number of tourists visit Cai Rang floating market (Can Tho city) at every early morning to eat special food, buy products or souvenirs and take pictures. Photo: Di Vy.

Misha, a female German tourist said: “the floating market is a valuable presentation of the Vietnamese culture. It is very unique and cannot be found anywhere in Germany”.

After wading for a while in the muddy ditch, you will burst with joy if you catch the fish. This is considered a typical experience of the Mekong Delta region.

Lorna Gladwin, an American female tourist, has traveled to Hanoi, Ninh Binh, Hoi An, Ho Chi Minh City and the last stop on her journey is Tien Giang province. Here, Lorna has experienced catching fish with her friends. She said that she had a great time in Vietnam. "I will miss you so much" - Lorna Gladwin shared this on her page. Photo: Lorna Gladwin.

Cross through the Monkey bridge

Monkey Bridge helps the people in the Western region pass through many canals more easily. Monkey Bridge is usually made of bamboo or wood, with handrails. For foreign visitors, this is a completely new experience because in Western countries there are no unique bridges that are as simple as this one. Photo: Ko Marina.

Almost like crossing over the monkey bridge but more adventurous and challenging, cycling on the 20 cm wide monkey bridge became prevalent last year. Tourists from near and far flocked to the ecotourism areas in Ben Tre to try this game. Video: Hoang Nam.

Visit the orchard

Almost all tourists traveling to the Mekong Delta region will stop by at least one orchard. These year-round fruitful gardens are the “specialty” of the Southwestern provinces. Depending on the season, each orchard will have a different kind of fruit. You can visit some destinations with famous fruit gardens such as An Bình islet (Vĩnh Long), Mỹ Khánh (Cần Thơ), Cái Mơn (Bến Tre), Cái Bè (Tiền Giang), etc.
