Victoria's Mekong delta discovery package tour
Victoria Can Tho Resort has brought out the "Discover the Mekong" package for guests to stay at the four-star resort and explore the Mekong Delta city of Can Tho and its surroundings.
The US$396 package for two people includes a round-trip between Ho Chi Minh city and the resort by car, a two-night stay in a deluxe river-view room, buffet breakfast, one dinner and a one-hour massage.
A river cruise on the resort's wooden boat, Lady Hau, is also part of the package. Every day in the early morning, Lady Hau and its cargo of Victoria Can Tho guests depart from the resort's wharf for a trip along the Hau River, the main southern arm of the Mekong Delta region.
During breakfast aboard the boat, passengers can see farmers taking their produce to Cai Rang, a crowded and thriving floating market and Lady Hau's destination, eight kilometers from the city.
The floating market, among several in the Mekong Delta, is believed to be 300 years old and, like the others, is busy from the wee hours of the morning until six in the evening.
Undoubtedly the best time to visit it is between 6am and 10am, when hundreds of boats of all sizes converge from near and far to unload and pick up farm produce.
For more information about the Mekong discovery package, contact the head office of Victoria Hotels and Resorts, 101 Tran Hung Dao Boulevard, District 1, Ho Chi Minh city, on (08) 837 3031 or email reservation @victoriahotelsasia.com.
