Life in the Mekong Delta is very much lived on, by or near the water: houses are built on stilts to withstand the floods, ferries carry people and vehicles between banks and boats ply their wares on the watery highway.
We invite you to discover this everyday river life on board our sampans, all designed as authentic traditional Delta boats using natural materials such as rattan, bamboo and exotic wood. You can choose between private and join-in cruises, ranging from a few hours to 1, 2 or 3 days.
Song Xanh Sampan, dedicated mainly to overnight cruises, are decked out with all the amenities including one or two private cabins and a spacious bathroom

The Mekong Delta is where the mighty Mekong River completes its 2,700 mile (4,300 km) journey from the Tibetan plateau and empties its riches into the South China Sea. This is an area of lush, tropical and fertile lands. It is often referred to as the 'rice bowl' of Vietnam due its huge production of rice crop. Vegetables, exotic fruits (coconuts, mangoes, rambutan) and fishing also feature prominently here.
With only 4 days you will visit the most typical places of Mekong Delta with the floating markets, Mangrove forest, Khmer Pagodas and the most special is Ca mau Cape, the southernmost location of Vietnam mainland. Enjoy your beautiful days with green, peaceful nature and friendly people.
