The Mekong Delta Farmstay trip starts and ends in Ho Chi Minh City. It is a getaways and short breaks trip that takes 2 days taking you through Mekong Delta and Ho Chi Minh City in Vietnam. Mekong Delta Farmstay is a guided small group trip that includes accommodation, transport, meals and others.

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’.
