    I know there are so many tours to Mekong Delta, but I would like to show you some reasons for choosing my trip. I and my family are local family in Mekong Delta. My parents are living there as farmers with a small bread store in the morning and a grape fruit garden, so what are more exciting than the experiences with local's life style? We are welcome you as a member in our family and of course, we always have a room to share with you in our home. I would like to offer you two ways to get there, by BIKE or LONG BUS. I am always willing to be your driver :D because I drive back there every weekend, you can enjoy the views on the way better. Bike will be a good choice if you would like to stay one day and one night there, but if you only have one day, I highly recommend you a very comfortable long Bus, then I will still have a Bike to drive you around there. If you would like to taste some traditional Vietnamese foods or you are gonna to join a class here, so now you will not need to do this if you book my trip. It's great if you can get up early to go to local market with me, pick up some materials and learn how to cook these tradition foods with the chief is my Mom and your assistant is me :D I get a menu for you as below pics My trip is the best way for you to get away from a trip with many other tourist and follow the tour guide during your trip. No, I am not your tour guide, I am your local friend, so I would like to experience with you on sailing boats to the islands, sit back on the horse wagon, visit coconut candy mills, selling breads, etc, All things I can do my best to show you This is ONE DAY trip, but I really recommend that you should spend 2 DAYS and ONE NGHTS here to enjoy the peaceful atmostphere as long as the traditional cuisines of local. So please contact me to get more info about the accomodation at my house for your best choice :D
