ITINERARY AND ROUTE MAP FOR A JOURNEY TO SOUTH VIETNAM - MEKONG DELTA

 

Itinerary for journey to south Vietnam and Cambodia

Years ago, I planned a journey around Vietnam from Hanoi to Saigon and we finished our travel in Mekong delta. It occurred to me then, that it might be interesting to continue on the river to Cambodia and visit this beautiful country too. So, I decided to return to Vietnam after three years and make this dream come true.

I landed to Saigon and from there continued on buses and boats to My Tho and Can Tho, where we explored tangled canals of Mekong and floating market. We visited floating village near the border in Chau Doc, where locals breed tons of pangasius fish under their houses, that are exported even to our supermarkets and also, Cham village. Then, I continued on a speed boat to Phnom Penh.

I planned my itinerary as follows:

01 - flight 18:15
02 - HCMC, landing 16:50
03 - HCMC, departure 7:30 Mekong - Can Tho

What I would do differently today

I wouldn't change anything on this journey, only if I had more time, I'd continue to Laos.
