Mekong Delta Day Cruise

We embarked on a full-day Mekong Delta trip from 8 a.m to 7 p.m. The tour actually ended at 3p.m but it took us three to four hours of journey back to our hotel. This one day Mekong Delta trip from My Tho to Ben Tre, including a lunch, cost USD 17 per person.

We boarded a medium-sized wooden boat to take a cruise from Saigon River to Mekong Delta. It was a long cruise for about two hours… and I had taken a number of photos along the river.
