Ho Chi Minh City, Southern Vietnam, Vietnam
Day 1: Ho Chi Minh - Cai Be - Tra On
We will begin our journey with a minivan ride to Cai Be in Mekong Delta. Unlike most overnight tours, you will be staying in an old-fashioned cabin instead of a common hotel or guesthouse. While checking in the cabins, you will enjoy a welcome drink and take a few minutes to relax before continuing the day. Although rustic, the cabins here have amazing views and an attentive staff to make you comfortable. 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 meet friendly 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
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 or 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.
