Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam
Without a doubt the dreamiest way to experience the Mekong Delta is by private Sampan, meandering through the network of canals that make up one of the highlights of Vietnam. Cruising by sampan is ideal for easy access to the delta’s narrow waterways. Disembarking is quick and straightforward, so you get plenty of time to explore the land as well.
Bicycles and a small rowing boat are available to help you investigate. The sampans are both extremely stylish and spacious, inspired by ancient Indochinese River boats and come with lots of outdoor space so you can stretch out and enjoy the fresh delta air.
You get to experience the hustle and bustle of the Cai Rang floating markets and taste the delightfully fresh cuisine the area is famous for whilst four crew, including either an English or French speaking guide are on board to pamper you. But if you like, all you have to do is sit back and enjoy this truly authentic experience.
