Experience River Cruise in Mekong Delta
To get the most out of the colorful life in the Mekong Delta, a relaxing Mekong Delta cruise is the best choice.

The big classic and exclusive river cruise ships such as the Aqua, L’Amant, Pandaw, Jayavarman, La Marguerite, or Amalotus run from 5 to 7 days between Saigon and Phnom Penh on the main branches of the Mekong. These vessels mainly serve the classic cruise audience in a sophisticated ambiance. There are smaller ships too, which offer shorter individual tours between 2 and 5 days. These river cruisers can also glide through smaller branches and canals which are too small for the larger boats. Here you can explore less industrialized areas and hidden gems in the delta.
Enjoy the wonderful water world on board a luxurious ship
On board an exclusive cruise vessel such as the Mekong Eyes or the Dragon Eyes, you can get a first-hand experience of the delta without sacrificing comfort and privacy. Small land excursions on foot or by bicycle and of course the visit of a floating market provide an insight into life in the Mekong Delta off the beaten track. Between the excursions, the vessels glide through beautiful water landscapes with lush vegetation, passing orchards, temples, and small towns.
Exploring life in Mekong Delta
If you have more time, you should stay at least two nights on a river cruise ship. There are different opportunities for river cruises such as Mekong tours from Ho Chi Minh to Chau Doc and then further to Phnom Penh. These longer tours provide a closer insight into the wonderful water world of the delta and are a perfect combination of relaxation and sightseeing. As the river has plenty to offer and there is a lot to discover in the delta, a multi-day trip is very worthwhile. The Mekong Delta exploration can be perfectly combined with an onward journey to Cambodia, Phnom Penh, Angkor Wat, or the popular holiday island of Phu Quoc.
Pure relaxation - even for travelers with less time
Even travelers with little time will also have the possibility to get to know the delta on a two-day river trip from Saigon. The tours lead to the floating markets of Cai Rang and Cai Be or to the romantic colonial village of Sa Dec. A journey from Saigon to the holiday island of Phu Quoc with one night on board is also an option.
For keen cyclists who would like to explore the delta by bike, there is the exciting choice to combine a river cruise and a bicycle tour. This allows you to explore the region in detail with two different perspectives: from the water and also from the land.
