While a 1 day combination tour of the Mekong Delta and the Cu Chi Tunnels can provide you with a glimpse of both destinations, it may not offer you a full experience of the Mekong Delta. The Mekong Delta is a vast region with numerous hidden gems and unique cultural aspects that are worth exploring in-depth. Combining it with a visit to the Cu Chi Tunnels, which is located quite far away, means that you only cover the most popular spots.

If you have limited time and want to see both places, a combination tour can be a good option. However, if you want a more immersive and authentic experience of the Mekong Delta, a separate dedicated tour may be a better choice.

For anybody that have a short stay in Ho Chi Minh City and want to visit both destinations in two days.
It really depends on what you’re interested in. If you’re interested in history and learning about Vietnam’s military past, the Cu Chi Tunnels would be a better choice. If you’re more interested in experiencing the daily life and culture of the Vietnamese people, the Mekong Delta would be a better option.
