Very good tour guide named henry. Despite the hot and humidity, the overall place gave a good impression and i really enjoyed the small town. The food is great, the fruits are sweet and fresh. A very refreshing experience.

This was an excellent tour except for the portion in the small rowing boat. Boat access and egress were tricky and difficult. There were also no life preservers or safety precautions.

On the second day we visited the Mekong with a long coach journey but well worth the effort. A cruise on the Delta, a visit to a factory making honey and processing coconut by products preceded a ride by pony and trap through the villages and ended with ride in a punt back to the quay where our boat was waiting. This was followed by a delightful lunch in a local restaurant.

Mekong Delta cruise was OK but wouldnt repeat, there really wasnt much to see except a touristy candy making store and fake canoe river trip.

An interesting day but a long one. Not what I expected; I envisaged mangrove swamps and deserted riverbanks on a calm but wide river delta. What we got was a very choppy river ride to an island where we had a sampan ride and lunch, which we enjoyed. Plus of course the compulsory factory and markets. I don't mind contributing to the local economy so I prefer to buy from the locals, but these factories seem so commercial I doubt any locals benefit!

This took FAR to long to get to. 3 hours each way to ride briefly on the river (in the city - not the least bit remote), a stop at a true tourist trap. We were fed honey tea and local fruits which were very good but the little sampan ride felt so much like Disneyland, a fellow traveller wondered whether we'd be able to see the rails! Despite this, the lunch was incredible! (Be sure to like seafood if you plan on going to Asia).

We both did this trip and it was quite disappointing. The brochure said a 30 minute cruise on the river and also a visit to an Island. We went across from the jetty onto the island and it was all about selling their wares. The only good part was the boat ride back 0off the Island. Not value for money
