This was a lovely relaxing three-day trip from Vietnam to Cambodia. Just what the doctor ordered after 2 weeks of high-powered touring.
The vintage riverboats are quite wonderful (even if they are quite modern really!) and the hospitality on board was excellent.
From a scenery point of view, the Mekong isn't great. Just a wide river with not very interesting banks.
But it's the relaxation that counts!

This cruise is an eye opener to how some Vietnamese are living outside of the capital. Hard yakka, in small shops selling rice based products (snake rice wine) or working on local fruit plantations where they are earning 10 cents a kilo for their hard labour. You may visit women expertly weaving hammocks from dried banana tree roots, amazing. You’ll have a delicious fish lunch served by shy women and young exquisite lads. It’s all done with a happy smile. We couldn’t have felt more welcomed. One not so pleasant sight is the endless spread of rubbish left on the roads and floating in the Mekong….

We spent a day cruising the Delta on small paddle boats in the canals and larger motorised wooden boats between the Islands. The river is so fertile that although rural it is densely populated. People live, trade, go to school and travel along the riverbanks. The Delta is called the "rice basket of Vietnam" as the surrounding land is farmed for rice, coconuts and vegetables

We were on the AmA Dara. Although the boat had a old feel about it, the amenities were modern and tip top. The river cruise was wonderful and relaxing. The food as great as were all the staff. The guides, in Cambodia and Vietnam were great, as was the cruise director, Mr Sn.
All in all, an excellent cruise and I suggest that you take it someday.

Throughly enjoyable experience. Very well equipped and comfortable Sampan. Staff brilliant, they served delicious food and all with a smile.
Lovely to take a gentle trip along the Mekong Delta. Only negative was the floating markets, billed as a highlight, it was not!

This was a real eye opener for me .. I have never seen such a wide river before and could not get over the murkiness of it. Was good taking in the local culture

We planned this before we left the UK and we loved every bit of it, the bees honey tea, i am seventy and only have 30 percent vision,
But I enjoyed having the Burmese Python round my neck
even thou it was getting in a position to strike and had to be removed quickly, I enjoyed the snake wine ( Had a real bite no pun ) getting on and off the boats was no problem once the guide new of my sight problem he helped me all the time it was well organised, we had a meal of various Vietmanes food , but the best part which was brought to us on a wrack then it was cut and rolled in rice paper it was bloody lovely . All I can say is I would have liked to do a longer trip

Amazing cruise on the Mekong!
Visiting the back end of the country is very different than going from one big city to the other. We were able to see how people live and in what conditions the are living in.

The Mekong Delta in southern Vietnam is a vast maze of rivers, swamps and islands. There are floating markets, Khmer pagodas and villages surrounded by rice paddies. Boats are the main means of transportation. Our first stop was the Vinh Trang pagoda, the biggest pagoda in the Mekong Delta.
The second stop was My Tho, where we took a boat trip along the Mekong River. The water is murky and full of fish and crocodiles. Each boat have eyes painted on so that the crocodiles think its a big fish and stay away.
Our boat brought us to to a small canal and we got off at Coconut Island. We took a short horse and cart ride to see how coconut candy was made and took a bike ride around the Ben Tre Village. After working up an appetite, we shared a family style lunch of fish, wraps, greens, eggs, soup and rice.
It was a full day of activities where we had tropical fruit, tasted honey tea at a bee farm and listened to Vietnamese traditional music performed by the villagers.

The small boat tour was an experience it will bring you to the candy making area where they sell the candies/ice cream too. I just didn't try the ice cream because our bus didn't have a toilet.

The Mekong delta tour is similar to the Seine river tour in Europe. We ate lunch in a restaurant in the island and while walking to the restaurant I saw some graves less than 10 and I go whatttt! It was a few and didn't seem like the area is a cemetery. Weird to see them on my way to the restaurant at such close range.

It rained that day and there were waves, we sort of got wet and had to ride the bus for an hour to go back to the city.

Hopefully your tour will have better weather.
