Mekong Kayaking

Mekong Kayaking









The Floating Market was once a center for local trade and authentic Vietnamese culture. However, the urbanization and flood of tourists greatly impacted this once quaint rural area. Now the market has only a few local merchants trading coconuts and bananas.

In 2015 a team of dedicated outdoor adventure guides decided the standard floating market experience needed to be updated to reflect the new Vietnam and the wonderful new experiences available in this beautiful area.

We’re proud to be the first company to provide a new way to experience the Mekong Delta and engage with the wonderful local residents from the vantage point of Kayaks. Our trip begins at the old “floating market” where you will experience first-hand the impact of tourism and industrialization. 

From there, we take you on a standard tourist boat for a short ride up river where we disembark and get back into the kayaks. For us, this is the highlight of our program as we begin paddling the small canals that connect the local residents of the real Delta. We paddle through lush green palms beside small rural roads before finishing and transferring back to Ho Chi Minh City.

Chau was a great guide, giving us both a great tour of local sites (e.g., a traditional weaving village, rice processing facility) but also gave us space to kayak on our own

Had an awesome day with Chau. Experiencing the Mekong Delta from a Kayak was a cool experience and the bicycle ride around one of the island was also great. Can highly recommend this tour Was a solo traveller on the 25th of February 2017.

If you wish to see the Mekong....this is the way to do it ! I have no hesitation in recommending this tour. You have the opportunity to boat, kayak and cycle the Mekong visiting villages, waterways and communities. The kayaks and mountain bikes where of good standard and the guide was excellent being from the Mekong area himself. Approx 3 - 4 km of paddling and 15km or so of flat trails and tracks ... a fabulous experience.
