Mekong Delta Tour from Phnom Phen to HCMC?

Posted by Harry05 on 8/10/2007 at 23:38

While travelling from Cambodia to Vietnam I wanna use a Mekong Delta tour leaving from Phnom Phen and ending in HCMC (former Saigon). Any recommendations about that?
* Which are good companies? How much will it cost?
* What is recommended 3D/2N, 4D/3N?
* Are there places that are not to be missed?
* Is it a better option than going to HCMC and take a Mekong Delta tour from there?

Thanks answering,

Harry
(p.s. I know I have to arrange my Vietnam visa before leaving Cambodia)

Harry did you ever get information about your inquiry above. Four friends are traveling in December and we have the same questions.

Thanks,
Joyce

Hey, every guesthouse offers Mekong tours, from PP to HCMC. We booked a 3day/2night Mekong Delta tour from our guesthouse (Okay GH, #5 Street 258)for approx. $30USD. Transport, guesthouse, breakfasts and English speaking guide included. The company was called Mekong Tours.

Day 1: Border crossing - slow boat from PP to Chau Doc, Vietnam. Free afternoon/evening
Day 2: Chau Doc to Can Tho - floating markets, fish farm.
Day 3: Can Tho to HCMC (arrive at TNK Travel office). Visit bonsai gradens, boat trip, visit rice factory, visit rice noodle factory, walk in small traditional Mekong village

Going rate for Vietnamese visa is $30USD.
