Overnight cruise in the Mekong Delta

The flat plains of the Mekong Delta lie in Vietnam's far south, and are home to a maze of interconnecting waterways, rice fields, floating markets, fruit orchards, and small villages. Many people choose to base themselves in Can Tho, the region's largest city, and explore the Delta from there, but a wonderful way to experience this captivating region is from the water itself on an overnight cruise.

There are a number of cruises operating 1 and 2 night cruises in this region, from the larger Bassac and Mekong Eyes, to the private Gecko Eyes or the Mango and Song Xanh Sampans. You will cruise along narrow canalways, visiting local homes and farms along the way, as well as experiencing the region's famous Cai Rang Floating Market. This method of transport allows you to really get under the skin of this part of Vietnam, as you sit back in comfort and watch the world go by.
