Well worth a visit and well worth the time, but if you are short of time (< 2 days) leave it for next time and use whatever time you have elsewhere.

I love the Mekong area, and it's people, but it depends what you're looking for.

And if your time is limited, then it is far better to see less, rather than try to see more.

If you do not have the time, do not bother.

My Sinh Tourist day tour included the Can Be floating market.

I found this floating market to be underwhelming. The Thai floating markets are much better.

If you are traveling to Mekong from HCMC , you really need to do it overnight.

It is definitely well worth to visit the Mekong Delta if you have more time as mentioned above.

Many people think that the floating market is the highlight of the Mekong Delta. But there is much more to offer in this region. Cruising along the river or small canals to enjoy the tropical scenery, biking along the orchard paths or rice paddies, walking through the villages and interact with the locals, trying the delicious local dishes...etc, the entire experience as listed, is the highlight of the Mekong Delta.

I hope you can add more time, otherwise it is worth to pay a visit for the next trip!

It is worth a day tour/ 1 night stay / 2 night stay.

Mekong delta is must-see destination in Vietnam so you should stay there at least 01 night in homestay or boat along Mekong river.
