Day 1 | Highlights:

Xin Chao and welcome to Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam! You will be met by an Emerald Waterways representative and transferred from the bustling city, through the scenic countryside to the gateway of the Mekong Delta, My Tho (please arrive by 11:00am). Here you will receive a taste of what’s to come as My Tho is a busy port town dependent on the river for its livelihood. From here we will begin our journey upstream aboard the luxurious RV Mekong Navigator. Once on board you will meet your Cruise Director and receive a warm greeting from the crew, followed by a welcome reception. This evening enjoy a delicious Vietnamese “Mekong Delta” Theme Dinner while sailing to Cai Be.
