Yes, this is our most suitable multiple day trip to the Mekong Delta for families with children.
The road network in the Mekong Delta has significantly improved over the years, resulting in better connectivity and increased transportation of goods by road. As a result, the floating markets have become smaller, although there are still plenty of boats using the rivers. If your sole purpose of the tour is to visit a floating market, you may be disappointed. However, the tour offers much more than that. You can enjoy the stunning location on the river and explore local life by boat, bicycle, and visiting various villages and workshops.
This Mekong Delta tour offers a perfect combination of local experience and comfortable accommodations in a stunning location. With well-organized activities, it is an ideal choice for those seeking a balance between authenticity and comfort.
