Day 1: Ho Chi Minh - Cai Be - Tra On (/L/D)
After being picked up from your Ho Chi Minh City hotel, travel be minivan to Cai Be in the Mekong Delta. Unlike most overnight tours, you will be staying in an old-fashioned cabin on-board your boat, instead of a hotel or guesthouse. While checking into the cabins, enjoy a welcome drink and take a few minutes to relax before continuing the day. Although rustic, the cabins here have amazing views and attentive staff to ensure your comfort.
Lunch will be served before we head out to visit a village on the bank of Mang Thit River. Here, you will have the opportunity to appreciate the way of life and hospitality of the residents. We can visit the orchards or rice fields and perhaps meet the locals, as well as taste the local fruit and produce.
Back aboard the boat, you have the option to either enjoy a drink at the bar or rest on the deck as the sun sets over the vast landscape of the Delta. You will continue onto Tra On where the boat will anchor for the night. We will end our evening with a delicious dinner on the boat.
Day 2: Tra On - Can Tho - Ho Chi Minh City (B/L)
Awaken to the sound of the river and begin another exciting day of sightseeing. Enjoy breakfast onboard the boat as we set off for a sunrise cruise. After breakfast, we will transfer to a sampan boat and head to Cai Rang Floating Market, the region’s busiest and liveliest market. You will visit some of the local candy and cake making factories, then take a boat ride through the green water landscape to see local houses, verdant orchards and ship yards. After the tour, you will have lunch before returning to Ho Chi Minh City.
