Rise early to bus to delta tour. Board a boat for 8-10 passengers to ferry across the Mekong. Switch to small dugout type boats to navigate narrow waterways. Disembark at various locations for lunch. Bring mosquito protection and sunscreen. Enjoy the coconut farm. See a way of life outside your box. Be not judgmental but learn and accept differences in... More

My brother and I went on two separate day trips with our awesome guide, Trung. The first day we went to the Cu Chi tunnels. Trung taught us so much about the history of the Vietnam war and was so incredibly patient with our many questions on the subject. It was incredible to see all of the resourceful things that...

My friends and I went on a private tour booked through Indochina Vietnam. Our tour guide Jackie was excellent so knowledgeable, funny and some great stories such as telling us about the coconut religion on one of the islands and about the fishermen. You need at least half a day and hopefully it doesn't rain. We tried the local fruit,... More

Picture a 5 star boutique hotel on water, that's the Aqua Mekong. We spent two weeks in Cambodia and Vietnam in March and cruising the Mekong River on the Aqua Mekong was the highlight of our trip. And that's saying a lot since we also stayed at Phum Baitang in Siem Reap, The Reverie in Saigon and Six Senses on... More

My husband and I booked a Timeless Wonders Mekong River Cruise with Uniworld. What a mistake! We paid for the travel insurance through Uniworld. We purchased the best package available- 100% refunded for no reason. My husband fell ill and we had to cancel our trip. What we received from Uniworld was NOT our trip cost. Now we have missed...
