Les Rives Full Day Mekong Delta Tour

Table of Contents

One of the highlights of our journey to Vietnam a couple of seasons ago, was taking a full day guided tour with Les Rives Tours from Ho Chi Minh City. My son and I enjoyed a wonderful boat tour to the Cu Chi Tunnels.

Recently, my daughter and her boyfriend traveled to Vietnam and enjoyed a full day tour as well, taking the Les Rives Mekong Delta Tour.

Les Rives Tour Guide

They had a fantastic day with an exceptional tour guide they said made the trip even that more exciting!  

Below, is a glimpse of what to expect on this tour and some of their pictures they sent to me after taking the tour.

About The Mekong Delta In Vietnam

Les Rives Mekong Delta Tour

The Mekong Delta, which is also referred to as The Nine Dragon River Delta due to the fact the Delta is created by nine adjoining rivers.  

The delta comprises a vast triangular plain of approximately 55,000 square kilometers, approximately 16,000 square kilometers of the inner delta are located in Cambodia.

The remaining 39,000 square kilometers make up the southern tip of Vietnam.

River Homes Mekong Delta

In Vietnam the Mekong Delta is intensively developed for agriculture. In fact, the Delta provides the country with about a third of its annual food crop.

This huge land formation consists of paddy fields and hills.

It’s numerous rivers, streams and canals are buzzing with activity including; boats, homes, floating markets and much more.
