Arriving in the Mekong Delta you start exploring a small and uncovered island, located between two rivers. These two rivers, Dại River and Tieu River, have six months per year fresh water and the other six months salty water.

The Discover the Mekong Delta tour is a classic tour that gives you a great opportunity to see some of the highlights of the Mekong Delta. This is also the best budget option to discover the Mekong Delta in a 1 day trip. However, if you like to visit places that are less visited for a more authentic experience, we recommend the Authentic Mekong Delta tour, with similar activities in a more rural and local location.
When packing for a day trip to the Mekong Delta, it is important to keep in mind that the weather can be hot and humid. Here are some items you may want to consider bringing:
  1. Sunscreen: To protect your skin from the sun’s harmful rays.
  2. Hat or cap: To shield your face and head from the sun.
  3. Insect repellent: To protect against mosquito bites.
  4. Comfortable clothing: Light, breathable clothing is best for the hot and humid weather.

The best time to visit the Mekong Delta is from December to May during the dry season. During this time, the weather is generally sunny with low humidity and little rain, making it perfect for outdoor activities such as boat rides and cycling. The temperature is also cooler during this period.
