I am going to Vietnam in March and want to spend a few days travelling up the Meekong river to see the sights, floating markets and way of life there.
I have looked on line and there seem to be tourist boats that take you in 3 day 2 night excursions.
Does anyone know if it is easy to just head there yourself and get a local to take you instead of on a big tourist boat or stay on a smaller boat with just 4 cabins.
I am with my family of 9 people so we could have a small boat to our selves?
I've been told it's a lot cheaper to do it that way and wondered if anyone out there has done this?
Look forward to any info and experience in your replies
