Mekong - My Tho Introduction

Last updated 28 Aug 2012

My Tho has long been the most popular point for travellers to the Mekong Delta on account of its proximity to Saigon. It remains the most popular day trip destination. 

Those planning to spend a few days in the Delta should push on another 20 minutes across the river to Ben Tre, or further again to Cai Be and Vinh Long where things get less crowded with tourists and more interesting with real local life.

Historians take note that the little hamlet of Ap Bac, where the historic 1963 battle of the same name took place is nearby and well worth a visit.
