Perhaps, most foreign tourists have ever bought food, fruits, as well as other things in the market or supermarket, and it’s sure that trading on the river is absolutely unbelievable for them. For that reason, experiencing a trip to the floating market at Mekong Delta – a remarkable symbol of this area – may blow their minds and bring them a new perspective on this form of market. Clearly, it’s easy and quick for tourists to fall in love with the picture in which local people row the boat on the river while trading their goods and specialties.

Along with sightseeing and experiencing the busy life with local people at the floating market, tourists can also enjoy fresh fruit here like durian, pomelo, rambutan, coconut, etc. There is nothing more awesome than tasting those kinds of fruit right after they have just been harvested and brought to the market for sale.

For foreign tourists, the daily life of local people on the river is a big surprise. They have not probably experienced and even seen a life in which the transportation is almost by boats. Additionally, it’s astonished that the local people live in their boats next to the waterways; this is further different from the normal life on the ground. Therefore, the Mekong Delta tour will be a worthy try for each of the tourists.

The good food

Fresh fruits are the main specialties at the Mekong Delta river, but there are also many other kinds of food, which easily fascinate lots of travelers. They will find a sufficient choice of sweet and tasty cakes, cream, noodles, and others in the morning market. Some of the good food kinds include Mustard leaves & sauteed beef, banh bo – a kind of flour cake with honey, coconut cream, and bo la lot – a grilled or fried dish of minced beef wrapped in betel nut leaves, Vietnamese Fried ruffled gourami fish, etc.
