The Mekong Delta

From the heights of the Tibetan Plateau, the mighty Mekong flows through six countries, giving life and a home to millions of people. For this, it was once named “Mother of all rivers”. After a journey of 4,350 km (2,700 miles) it reaches the Pacific Ocean.

N. B.: The floating markets in the Mekong Delta are no tourist markets but wholesale markets where produce of the Mekong Delta like fruits and vegetables are traded. For this reason the number of boats on the market fluctuates depending on harvesting seasons and market demand. Furthermore, modern wholesale markets are becoming more popular in Vietnam. This can result in decreasing numbers of boats being present on the markets.This tour is available on all even dates (e.g. Sept. 2, 4, 10 etc.) on Mekong Eyes Classic, every Tuesday on Mekong Eyes Explorer and daily on our Gecko Eyes and Dragon Eyes Cruisers.
