Therefore, if you have a chance to take Mekong Delta tours, let’s experience boat-sailing to feel how interesting it is!


In the floating markets

Floating market is a unique kind of market in Mekong Delta. Unlike markets in another region, it entirely meets and operates on the boats on some big rivers. On each boat, it supplies only some prominent products such as fishes, fruits, flowers, foods or drinks. Especially, traders do not have to announce and invite customers anymore. Instead, they hang their products on a pole on their boats so that customers can recognize and drop in if they need these products. Visiting floating markets in Mekong Delta, you can not only enjoy the regional cuisine as well as buy some agricultural products but also have a chance to be a trader. To be specific, real traders are always willing to instruct you how to sail and control the boat to move around rivers. As a trader, you will know how local people earn a living with their boats and understand how skillful they are when sailing boats every day. Therefore, it is such a pity if you take Mekong Delta tours without trying sailing boat in the floating market.

In Tra Su Cajuput Forest

The floating season always attracts a large number of tourists to visit Mekong Delta. At that time, Tra Su Cajuput Forest is considered to be one of the worthiest places to go. Specifically, it has all of the most typical features of an ecosystem in the west of Hau River. Thanks to its inherent features, it becomes an indispensable destination to experience boat-sailing in Mekong Delta. Commonly, you will pay the boatman to have them carry you along Tra Su Cajuput Forest so that you can comfortably admire the strikingly beautiful scenery here. However, you can ask the boatman to instruct you how to sail the boat and then you can try controlling it by yourself to enjoy your trip in a unique way.
