“There are a lot of stuff to do and see in the Mekong Delta, not just the floating market. It is still crowded and even more crowded if you visit it the right time- from early morning at around 5:30 am. As we usually get up late and enjoy breakfast and travel there, it must be almost 7:30 am then, so there are not many merchants doing their business there, for sure. Taking a boat ride through canals, dropping by local orchards or riding bike along shady peaceful paths among rice fields…it’s more than worthy.”said by a visitor on trip advisor
