Mekong Delta – One-Day Trip
Whether you are visiting Saigon as a tourist or you just live here, you probably have taken the so-called ‘Mekong Delta One-Day” trip. You probably wondered why you were fooled by the advertisements about this trip around the Pham Ngu Lao Backpacker areas. After taking part on this trip, you finally came to realize, you got what you paid for. Of course, this is after the fact.
Anyway, I got my one-day tour for free from a friend in the backpacker area. No need to complain 🙂 My advice, rent a car and your own tour guide and make a trip to the Mekong Delta yourself. It will be more interesting.

(Boat ride to one of the many islands during the tour – Please note, the boat is really, really slow and uncomfortable)

(Back to the boats)
(A smaller boat ride inside the island – More interesting due to traffic jam)
