MEKONG DELTA TOUR TRAVEL GUIDE FOR A DAY || Checking out various activities to do in Vietnam, I came across with this MEKONG DELTA TOUR for a day. It seems interesting and the sampan boat ride is what I was eager about to check out and try for this trip. So in this blog, I’d like to share my personal travel experience.
MEKONG DELTA TOUR
Entrance Fee : Php 700.00 ( 309959.91 VND / 13.36 USD)
Where to book : Klook.com
If you still have another day to spend in Vietnam don’t forget to try and check out the Mekong Delta Tour.
For this trip I also booked it thru klook.com it only cost Php 700.00 ( 309959.91 VND / 13.36 USD) and it was good for a whole day trip already, it comes with a bus ride from and to Mekong, an English Speaking Guide all throughout, Free Lunch, Mixed Fruits, Boat ride and Sampan Ride plus different places were covered as well. Check this out :
We started the day in bus and head over to this Pagoda and temples around.
WHAT TO EXPECT FROM THE DAY TOUR?
9:00AM || We went over the Pagoda and tour around this special temple for less than an hour. I honestly didn’t expect that there are also temples around Vietnam which makes it more exciting!
And oh, we bought a Palm Hat worth 20.000 VND ( PHP 45.17, 0.86 USD ) to complete the Vietnam Experience and vibe hahahaha!!! Palm Hat is readily available almost everywhere, you’ll see it.
*Note : you’d also see Palm hat for sale from the Cu Chi Tunnel tour, but it is way expensive than the ones for sale at Pagoda area
It is said that only ladies wear this Palm Hat, used as protection and can also be used as a bag when carrying fruits over the arm.
we rode thru this boat ride for a couple of minutes, with the English Speaking Guide.
And alight at the Coconut Plantation where we get to have so many free tastes from desserts, candies, and even exotic wines such as the Snake Wine — make sure to grab a glass of it as it is a once in a lifetime experience! hahahaha!! too strong though, so make sure you can handle alcohol as well.
They’ll teach you how they do production of the coconut, which is great and informative as well.
On to our lunch, we rode back to the boat ride and went to the next stop where we would be having our lunch.
The basic lunch meal is also part of the Klook package
You may want to add or upgrade as well on your food which is totally fine. After lunch, we had a short walk then went for a Sampan Ride (*the mini boat or bangka which is much more known for)
It was just a short sampan ride going to the opposite side for around 20 minutes. Then had small walk and visited our last stop for the day.
the beauty of travelling is dealing and talking with fellow travellers from various places and countries.
While the locals were singing, we were given a honey tea plus these fruits to compliment the mood.
After less than an hour, we headed back to our bus area and head all the way back to the meeting place.
This trip was relatively cheap!! Imagine spending PHP 700.00 only for all those inclusion. It was really a full day jam-packed with activities plus new people to share with our journey. Having a tour guide to explain each activity was also really helpful, you get to take note and understand everything better.
After the trip which lasted around 4 – 5pm in the afternoon, we headed then back to our hostel to rest and had a quick dinner around. If you want to check and plan for your entire Vietnam Itinerary, you may also check the link below :
