Most Amazing Things To Do In Vietnam’s Mekong Delta

Must See In Vietnam suggest you today to skip Vietnam’s beaten path and discover why the underexplored Mekong Delta Region is worthy of discerning travelers’ bucket lists. We are publishing an other great article by LAUREN FEATHER for TheTravel.com … The Editor

Mekong Delta, also called “Mien Tay” by the locals, is seemingly off-the-beaten-track to foreign tourists, where a flat expense of sandbars and watercourses form a 35,000 square kilometer triangle lying just west of Ho Chi Minh City. Yet, this place of unrelenting beauty – coined the “rice bowl” of the country where over fifty percent of Vietnam’s rice is produced – turns out to be an ideal destination with many fascinating experiences.

For those who plan to come to Mekong Delta – a region of astounding, untouched beauty that is central to all local life – the best things to do are boat trips along the Mekong River’s twisting capillaries of tropical canals, mangroves, and rice paddies, trading in the floating markets, enjoying the flavor of fresh fruits, exploring its historic attractions, temples and pagodas, and seeing the authenticity of the native way of life left unaffected by the outside world. Need specifics? Then consider these truly amazing sights, sounds, and scenes for that dream trip to Vietnam’s unique Mekong Delta Region.

Shopping At The Floating Markets

One of the most immersive experiences for tourists to discover the local way of life is the region’s bustling floating markets. It’s all along these busy watery hubs where bountiful bargains and loads of haggling take place, all at the region’s fascinating floating markets – a key part of the culture and trade in the Mekong Delta area that’s seemingly remained unchanged since the early 1800s during the Nyugen Dynasty (as some historians believe).

A practice centuries old, trade and bartering at floating markets continue to be the base of enterprise and the principal livelihoods for many locals – many of whom reside in floating houses along the Mekong Delta River. Ripe fruit, flower stalls, fresh food, and more are all for sale on along the tropical canals, with local vendors shopping and trading from their sampans – a traditional kind of boat used by the local people.

In the region, there are five known floating markets to visit, including Cai Rang, Cai Be, Phong Dien, Nga Nam, and Long Xuyen. Cai Rang and Cai Be are the most popular and busiest, the former also being the largest while the latter is the only one reachable on a day trip from Ho Chi Minh City. The only downside of these floating markets is that they’re not for folks who struggle to get up early in the morning; the best time to visit any of them is as early as possible – as early as 3 am when hundreds of vendors begin steering their sampans into the market area.

Discover The Vinh Trang Pagoda in My Tho, Tien Giang Province

Featuring a fascinating blend of Eastern and Western architecture, the 150 year-old Vinh Trang pagoda is an icon known across Vietnam, and is celebrated for its architectural, historical, and religious importance. The Buddhist pagoda is a magnificent cultural relic surrounded by an enchanting series of ornate gardens home to four enormous interconnected sections, five buildings, 60 statues, 178 pillars, and an old bell dating back to 1854.

Showcasing spectacles of stunning artwork, the designs to be marveled at on-site are truly mesmeric; there are vibrant mosaics showing off stories of nature and folklore, as well as 18 amazing arhats carved from the wood of jackfruit trees – to name just a handful of the breathtaking features of this historic, artistic space.

Explore The Region On A Mekong River Cruise

For the most part, luscious wetlands cover the Mekong Delta region, which mean one thing for sure; water activities are the best ways to have fun and explore its gems within – and one of the most enthralling is a river cruise along the Mekong River. Opening up both sightseeing and cultural scenes, a trip down the Mekong River that runs through Vietnam is one of the most eye-opening experiences to have in the region – where life revolves entirely around the rivers. The perfect mix of scenery and cultural immersion can be had on a river cruise, many of which take travelers to lots more places than they might have first thought.

Most Mekong River cruises not only follow the river to observe the natural scenery, they also offer the chance to explore areas and take part in local activities for a truly enriching escapade. Generally speaking, in terms of tour operator lingo, a river cruise provides an overnight trip along the river with water activities and a few destinations included, while on the other hand, a package tour only involves one daytime river cruise trip as one activity, coupled with several other inland or water activities. Mekong River cruises take guests to discover local Mekong provinces, and on the whole, cost a few hundred dollars per person. However, there are other luxury liners that explore further for longer, taking explorers not only to parts of the Delta, but also to others such as Phnom Penh and Siem Reap.

Take A Sampan Boat Trip

The modest, traditional version of a Mekong River cruise, taking a simple sampan boat sailed by a local is an experience no discerning travelers should skip during their stay in the Delta. Floating through emerald mangrove forests to reach various tourist attractions and treasures off the beaten trail, one can discover a distinct sense of peace and quiet along with a separate way of life when traversing the region’s untouched watery veins within.

Proving a unique insight into both sides of the coin, hopping on a sampan boat before or after experiencing a tourist-geared Mekong River cruise shows the intense contrast between the touristic facade and the genuine but basic local lifestyle and method of transport. Both are equally as beautiful and enriching of course, but they are intriguingly different and do complement each other.

As for where to go for a relaxing sampan boat trip along the river, there are various possibilities. For just a few dollars, three to four people per sampan boat can explore several known spots, such as Tra Su Cajuput forest (An Giang), Thi Tuong Lagoon (Ca Mau), and Thoi Son Islet (Ben Tre) to mention only a small handful of beautiful places.

Visit The Khmer Pagodas Of Tra Vinh Province

Because Tra Vinh used to be a part of the Khmer empire, there are still over 300,000 Khmer people residing in the province – the highest population in the entire Mekong Delta region. As such, it’s not at all surprising that the province boasts 140 Khmer temples peppered all over its lush landscapes, offering a unique look and feel to this part of the country unlike most others.

Of significant note, pagodas that should not be missed on one’s trip to this part of the Delta include the Hang Pagoda and the Kompong Chray Pagoda – both for their imposing features and surreal settings in pristine nature. Hang pagoda (“hang” meaning “cave” in the Vietnamese language) is named after its most defining features – the 12 meter-deep dome shaped gate that affords majestic photography opportunities to those who come with a camera good enough to capture its glory. It’s also well known for the families of storks that are often seen nestling in the trees surrounding the ornamental site.

The ultimate way to satiate one’s discovery of these truly stunning sites, visitors intrigued by more than just the beauty of the Khmer pagodas and temples – but also the Khmer culture and history – will satisfy their curious cravings by checking out the Khmer Culture Museum.

Savor The Local Cuisine Of The Mekong Delta Region

Vietnamese cuisine is a worldwide favorite, and the dishes to be discovered in its Mekong Delta Region validate the country’s celebrated culinary status truer than ever. The region is not be famous for its fancy feasts and luxury cuisine, but rather its unique local delicacies that can’t be compared to any other in Asia. There are a wealth of taste bud tantalizing foods to try, including bun rieu, pia cake, hu tieu, Vietnamese pancake, and for the very bravest travelers, Coconut Larvae. Interestingly, what makes Delta dishes so different is that many of them are made from ingredients that come straight from the natural environment; for example, flowers play a major role in many local dishes, such as sesbania, sesban, and the lovely flower hotpot.

Naturally, some of the best spots at which to sample the local cuisine are the many floating markets. Imagine floating on an authentic, rustic sampan boat tucking into a variety of unique, otherworldly foods with all the hustle and bustle of market vendors going on in the background – does dining in the Delta region get any more enriching than that? (Note that floating markets are only for early birds and typically only serve breakfast. Local restaurants and markets in the villages are a better option for lunch and dinner). Throw in the fact that the average price tag per meal rests at just half a dollar to five dollars, and there’s no reason not to order a plate of everything available right then and there for a fantastic Mekong Delta feast.

Bite Into The Freshest, Juiciest Treats At Fruit Orchards

The Delta’s sublime tropical climate makes its fruit orchards flourish, and the region is indeed famed as one of the country’s largest fruit producers. Of course, one can find and sample all of the region’s delicious fruits at the floating markets, however, the short season coupled with the lengthy fruit picking and transporting process affects the fruits’ freshness by the time it’s finally made its way into customers’ mouths.

This means that there’s no juicier, fresher way to enjoy the region’s mouth-watering fruits than picking them straight from the tree and biting into them right then and there. It’s possible to visit the Delta’s fruit orchards year-round, but undeniably the best time is the summer season when the majority of the fruits are ripe, ready, and bursting with flavor.

There are ample amounts of fruit orchards to visit in the area, with the Tien Giang Province being the largest fruit producer in the whole area thanks to the Tien River’s fertile surrounding terrain. On the other hand, the Cai Be Fruit Orchard is one of the region’s largest fruit gardens – one that specializes in longans, jackfruit, tangerines, guavas, rambutan, grapefruits, and more.

Another orchard worthy of a visit is the Dragon Fruit Farm in Long An province, renowned for its bright pink, white, and yellow variants of this irresistible tropical fruit. And, anyone with a taste for mangos should not miss out on a trip to Hoa Loc Mango Garden – one of the Delta’s most iconic orchards that is responsible for the sweet-scented, flavorful Hoa Loc Mango that’s known to be among the world’s tastiest mangos of all time.

The majestic views, delicious foods, and floating villages make travelers flock to this destination all year round.

But these 8 outstanding things will paint the picture as to why Vietnam’s Ha Long Bay is famous.

Cat Ba Island

Cat Ba Island, sitting on the southeastern edge of Ha Long Bay, is one of Vietnam’s most popular tourist attractions. It is home to three clean beaches with a relaxed atmosphere for swimming on a lazy afternoon. Cat Ba is also a perfect place to quench your thirst for adventure, given its abundance of crisp turquoise waters for kayaking and high altitude lands for rock climbing. Alternatively, renting a bicycle to explore through the awe of the countryside’s heritage is also a great idea.

  • Location: Cat Ba 180000, Vietnam
  • Recommendations: Hospital Cave, Cat Ba National Park, and Two Cannons Fort

Hospital Cave

The name arouses the curiosity of many travelers. Hospital Cave’s mysterious and bombproof nature can be traced back to 1963 when it was built as a safe house and hospital for the wounded during the Vietnamese war between 1963 and 1965. Apart from the well-guided tour around the historical place, Hospital Caves’ unique architecture of its seventeen rooms provides ample space for a thrilling movie night at the cinema theater.

  • Location: Cat Ba
  • Recommendation: Indoor swimming, guided tour, and the movie theater

Bai Chay Market

Ha Long Bay is famous for its rich culture of healthy food, which is great news for visitors who are foodies. From fresh, indigenous fruits and vegetables to tantalizing seafood from the Gulf of Tokin, any tourist can do heavy shopping under one roof. The availability of local items like handcrafted carvings and clothes in this market makes it a hotbed of souvenirs that travelers can carry home.

  • Location: Quang Ninh 202400
  • Recommendation: Try seafood, nighttime shopping is best

Floating Villages

Buoyed up houses on a calm sea top many tourists’ sightseeing bucket lists when it comes to novelty. The villages have maintained an antique style since their establishment in the 19th century by local fishermen. To visitors’ delight, the floating villages are also open centers where people can participate in interactive boat rides, learn how to weave fishing nets, and also buy some indigenous artifacts. Visitors lucky enough to hang around till nighttime get a chance to fish some night squids.

  • Location: Cua Van, Vung Vieng, Ba Hang, and Cong Dam
  • Recommendation: Cao Cave, Devil Face Island, Thien Cung Cave, and nighttime squid fishing

Cat Ba National Park

For hiking enthusiasts, this is the ultimate place to start your expedition. The bio-diverse National Park covers over half of Cat Ba Island. The park is home to about 1,500 species of trees and 32 animal species (be keen to catch a glimpse of the endangered langur).

The 18-kilometer trail makes it easy for hikers to maneuver through the Karst Mountains and beautiful forests that get thicker as interior exploration intensifies. Visitors with a knack for history are encouraged to hire the hospitable guides available to educate them about the Cat Ba National Park.

  • Location: Hai Phong, Cat Ba Island
  • Recommendation: Woodstock Jungle Camp, Cat Ba Eco-Lodge, and Cat Ba Rustic Homestay

Fort Cannon

Fort Cannon is probably every photographer’s dream. Positioned at a panoramic vantage point, the view of the islands that dot the vast seas from a far distance is breathtaking. The beautiful sunset right beside the jungle-covered hills is also one of the mesmerizing sceneries worth a couple of snapshots.

Visitors can also get to explore the underground tunnels constructed by war troops during World War II and other tourist attractions such as bunkers and gun emplacements. The uniformed soldier mannequins placed “guarding” various points in Fort cannon are something to take a selfie with.

  • Location: Cat Ba Island
  • Recommendation: Cannon Fort Cat Ba Hotel and Cannon Fort Coffee

Quang Ning Museum

Quang Ning Museum is another must-visit location in Ha Long Bay. The destination is a fantastic way to explore the rich history of Vietnam and get to know the native people’s cultural identity. The museum has three floors, each dedicated to displaying specific categories of precious artifacts. Tourist attractions available in the museum include a whale skeleton, wooden sailboats, war relics, and traditional carvings.

  • Location: Bao Tang, Quang Ning
  • Recommendation: Museum Library and the magnificent view of the Ha Long Bay coastline

Monkey Island

While still being careful about the mischievous habits of monkeys, many tourists find the playful and entertaining nature of monkeys enjoyable. Their heavy presence on Monkey Island (Cat Dua in Vietnamese) is something nobody can ignore, especially in their wild environment. Monkey Island has become an instant gem for visitors looking to take a cruise. The luxurious private beaches provide an ambiance for sunbathing, swimming, kayaking, and snorkeling.

  • Location: Cat Dua, Cat Ba Island
  • Recommendation: Monkey Island Resort, Cat Ba Island Resort & Spa, Cat Ba Island Hotels

Once a remote and lesser-known destination on the tourism map, Non Nuoc Cao Bang, which literally means mountains and water of Cao Bang, catapulted to global fame since it was declared a new global geopark by UNESCO in 2018, making it the second of its kind in the country after Dong Van Plateau in Ha Giang Province.

With 90-percent mountainous terrain, the area is inhabited by nine different ethnic minority groups, including the Nung, Tay, Hmong, Dao and San Chay.

Inside the geopark are scenic spots like Ban Gioc Waterfall, Pac Bo Cave, Thang Hen Lake and Phia Oac eco-tourism area.

Pac Bo Cave (also known as Coc Bo) is named after a small village in Cao Bang that served as President Ho Chi Minh’s residence in the winter of 1941 following his return after 30 years in exile. It has become a popular tourist attraction with the Ho Chi Minh Shrine, Lenin Creek and Karl Marx Peak.

The first thing that catches the eyes of visitors is the turquoise water of the famous Lenin Creek with the signboard that said President Ho Chi Minh used to sit there fishing after work in 1941.

Swimming is strictly forbidden in Lenin Creek as it is sacred to Vietnamese.

Ban Gioc Waterfall, which straddles the China border 30 kilometers from the central market of Cao Bang’s Trung Khanh District, is the largest waterfall in Southeast Asia and the world’s fourth largest along a national border after Iguazu, Victoria and Niagara.

The waterfall is 53 meters high and 300 meters wide and has three levels of smaller waterfalls.

There is a small sloping path to the waterfall. Buses with a seating capacity of 25 or less can travel down the path while bigger ones drop their passengers off at a parking lot at the Vietnam border station for them to walk down.

Three kilometers from Ban Gioc Waterfall lies Nguom Ngao, a stunning cave with stalactites in various shapes and sizes.

Created by an underground river, it runs several kilometers and was where villagers sheltered during the country’s 1979 border war with China.

It takes around one hour to walk through Nguom Ngao. Locals discovered the cave in 1921, but it was not opened to tourists until 2006 when paths were built for visitors.

In the language of the Tay ethnic minority group, “Nguom Ngao” means tiger cave. It is believed that this cave used to be a habitat for tigers, hence the name.

Based on data published by British Caving Association in 1995, Nguom Ngao has a total length of 2,144 meters with three main entrances and thousands of caverns. Inside is a collection of tiny limestone cliffs and unique stalactites that took millions of years to form.

Thang Hen Lake is 30 kilometers north of Cao Bang’s capital town, but since the road there is twisting, it can take around an hour to reach.

The lake is made up of 36 smaller lakes that are all connected through caves and underground passageways.

During the dry season the water level drops, showing the 36 distinct lakes. The best time to visit is the monsoon season (from May to October) when the water level rises and links all of them into one big lake.

Unlike other lakes that turn brown during the rainy season, Thang Hen stays blue all year round since it is fed by clear pure water from a cave above.

At a height of 1,931 meters above sea level, Phia Oac mountain is the second highest mountain in the province after Phia Da.

During the winter season from November to January, tourists always flock to the mountain range to admire the white frost as temperatures plunge to sub-zero degrees Celsius.

Cao Bang is dotted with small villages hidden in valleys, the countryside and mountains with some even dating back to French colonial times. You can visit Phia Thap Village to see the traditional way of making incense or Pac Rang Village, famous for its blacksmiths.

The incense making craft of the Nung ethnic minority in Phia Thap Villagehas a long history.

Phia Thap incense is made entirely from natural materials, including bamboo, the bark of the cotton tree and sawdust and the leaves of a wild tree named “bau hat” to make the glue for bonding the materials together.

Hoang Van Ut, a local, said after drying the sticks his family would dye their bottom red and tie them into bundles to sell in mountain markets. Visitors can buy three bundles for VND10,000 ($0.43).

Nestled at the foot of Phja Cao Mountain in Ha Lang District, around 100 kilometers from downtown Cao Bang, Na Vi Village is surrounded by the green color of bamboo groves and rice fields. This area is close to Quay Son River, forming a natural border with China to the north.

The village is home to 100 ethnic Tay families living in centuries-old stone houses. Na Vi is one of the few places to retain traces of Mac Dynasty (1527-1595), a royal family in Vietnam’s feudal history. Local authorities plan to develop community-based tourism in the locality.

WHAT TO EAT

Banh ap chao, or fried duck meat cake, is a popular street food in Cao Bang.

The crust is a dough mixture of rice flour, glutinous rice flour and soybean. Locals use newly harvested rice, soak it in water for half a day to soften and grind it into flour. Soybeans and egg yolks are added to the flour to make a batter.

The filling is made from duck meat deboned and marinated just like roasted duck. It is then deep fried in a large wok in hot oil and flipped over until golden brown on both sides. Ms. Hac’s stall at 116 Hien Giang Street is one place to try this.

For snacks, one can try Trung Khanh chestnuts from Trung Khanh District. Since the district enjoys cool weather and ideal soil, chestnuts here have a subtle richness unlike the mild taste one would normally associate with them.

Roasted, steamed or dried chestnuts are all ideal for the rainy season. People also add chestnuts to pork to make a stew or grinding it to a powder for use as cake filling.

Vit quay bay vi, or roasted duck with seven flavors, is another famous culinary specialty of Cao Bang.

The seven flavors refer to seven spices and condiments used to marinate the duck – ginger, garlic, dried onion, pepper, honey, tofu, and dried leaves of clausena (mac mat in Vietnamese) that grows in Cao Bang’s forests.

The duck is then roasted with crispy golden-brown skin outside and tender meat inside.

Sour pho is a specialty one should not miss in Cao Bang. This dry pho is different from the southern version thanks to a combination of herbs, roasted peanuts, pork, duck, and a sour sauce made from lime.

It’s not difficult to find stalls selling this treat in Cao Bang but Ms. Quyen’s stall on Ly Thuong Kiet Street and another stall near Hien River Bridge in Cao Bang Town are highly recommended.

Float on the Rattan Bridge

The enchanting spot lies 10.6 miles away from Sapa. This pristine beauty, which is skillfully and strongly tied between trees, manages to cast a spell on visitors, allowing them to enjoy every moment of floating on the clouds. Though sturdy, the bridge can be a little shaky, and looking down the river delivers a nerve-wracking and unforgettable experience.

The path leads to a wild peach forest, followed by orchid gardens with approximately 6,000 orchids. Taking strolls around the trails exposes visitors to seemingly endless gardens full of blooming flowers. From cherry blossoms to geraniums, there are different flowers that create an aesthetic experience.

In front of this classic church is a little square, which creates a festive atmosphere. Here, tourists can opt to dress in traditional clothes and engage in unique cultural activities.

The best visiting time is early in the morning since guests can observe the massive cross illuminating once the sun creeps over the horizon. Indeed, Sapa never ceases to amaze with its spectacular views and iconic structures.

If you have little time to discover Vietnam, talk to people, immerse yourself in the local culture of the villages and towns you have planned to visit…visit the local market

Da Nang’s busiest market hosts a culinary bonanza … every day … don’t miss a visit there !

If you have little time to discover Vietnam, talk to people, immerse yourself in the local culture of the villages and towns you have planned to visit…visit the local market, you will certainly get a change of scenery and experience the daily life of Vietnamese. Take the time to taste the local specialties on the spot, get drunk on this unique moment, take photos and bring with you the local products to revel in your experience once back home.

MiKi Chef suggests you taste many dishes … it’s worth !

You will live an unforgettable experience to observe and share the daily life of friendly merchants and their regular customers. We suggest that you be accompanied by a good bilingual guide 💡

In Da Nang, locals will tell you that Con Market is the best place to try signature dishes of the central region that is authentic, tasty and cheap.

Da Nang’s busiest market hosts a culinary bonanza

Located at the intersection of Hung Vuong and Ong Ich Khiem streets, the market’s name dates back to the 1940s when the market was located on a high hill (con) in the heart of the city. 

Da Nang’s busiest market hosts a culinary bonanza

The market is home to over 2,000 stalls selling a wide range of goods, but food is a huge part of the attraction for locals. Apart from fresh produce and dried dishes, they are drawn in particular by salty, pungent condiments particular to the central region, like mam nem (fermented anchovy sauce), mam ruoc (fermented shrimp paste), mam tom (shrimp paste) and mam so (fermented ark clam sauce). 

Da Nang’s busiest market hosts a culinary bonanza

Lieu’s stall sells mi quang (Quang-style noodles), a dish that originated in Quang Nam Province that borders Da Nang. Thick, broad yellow rice noodles are served in red-orange turmeric sauce with a choice of pork, chicken, shrimp, quail eggs, mussel, and eel in a beef broth. 

To increase flavors and textures, other ingredients like banh trang (sesame rice crackers), spring onion, basil, peanuts, coriander, lettuce and sliced banana flowers are added. 

Inside the market, each food stall has limited space, so they can only serve five to 10 guests at a time.

This stall serves banh it tran (sticky rice dumpling) and banh bot loc (steamed tapioca cake with shrimp) with a fish sauce dip with pickled carrots.

Another popular pan Vietnam dish with local touches is banh cuon thit nuong (steamed rice rolls served with grilled pork). 

The dish is served with nem chua (fermented pork), Vietnamese pork bologna cha lua and thinly-sliced grilled meat besides herbs, bean sprouts and a sweet fish sauce dip with alum sugar. 

Da Nang’s busiest market hosts a culinary bonanza

This is a dish that every visitor should try in the Con Market – rice paper rolls with pork and an assortment of herbs. A serving that costs VND40,000 ($1.74) per person includes a plate of thin rice papers, boiled pork cut into medium-sized pieces and fresh raw vegetables including several kinds of lettuce, perilla, onion, cilantro, cucumber and thinly-sliced mango.

A small cup of mam nem seasoned with chili garlic is the indispensable dipping sauce for the dish.

Da Nang’s busiest market hosts a culinary bonanza

Unlike rice paper rolls with boiled pork in the southern region that is always served with fish sauce, the central region uses mam nem, made of fermented anchovies, sugar, Thai chili pepper, garlic, lemongrass, sugar, and crushed pineapples.

Da Nang’s busiest market hosts a culinary bonanza

If you are fan of sweet soups, Hoa Xu’s stall will do justice with all kinds of red bean and green bean soups, mixed sweet soup, flan cake, smoothies and pickled fruits that are displayed on her store shelves.

Sugared Malay gooseberry (Phyllanthus acidus), sugared tamarind, other sweet pickles and banana jam are popular items in the market. Try all of them and buy what you like the most. 

The market opens from 7 a.m. to 7:30 p.m every day.

An other great article By Huynh Nhi, Nguyen Dong for E.VnExpress.net

What a culinary experience tasting local specialities in the Central Market !
Con Market is the biggest market in the city. There are about 2,000 vendors, selling thousands of products at the market. It is not only the favorite place of not only local people but also visitors for buying commodities, souvenirs, foods, etc. Tourists who would like to immerse into the local life love to explore this market where there are hundreds of interesting things to see and do.
