  Discover the authenic Mekong delta and cruise the river in comfort !


This 2 day trip offers a glimpse into the agrarian life of the vibrant southern Delta region as we wind our way through the tributaries of the Mekong Delta. From our boats, we are able to closely observe the daily rituals of river life and participate in the bustling commercial activities as we buy our fruits from the floating market. Along the way, we will visit an orchard farm, handicraft village, and a land market with an abundance of colorful fresh fruits and vegetables.



Itinerary
:

Day 1: Saigon – My Tho – Cai Be (L)
8:00am: Pick up from your hotel in Saigon and take a pleasant one and half hour car ride passing the green rice fields to the beautiful rural My Tho city. The morning trip will start with a motorized boat on the Tien River to view 4 islets: Long (Dragon Islet), Lan (Unicorn Islet), Qui (Tortoise islet) and Phung (Phoenix Islet) and view the fishing port, stilt houses, boat-building workshops. The cruise will lead you through Bao Dinh canal to enter Ben Tre Province, "the country of coconut", to see a typical agricultural model call "Garden - Pond – Cage” then enjoy coconut candy mill and the relaxing honey tea. 

Then the amazing rowing boat trip on the small canal - fully covered by the shadow of the water coconut’s tree and cool breezes is something you cannot miss. Lunch will be served right in the heart of the orchard garden. Enjoy the horse-cart ride in the village paths. Visit fruit garden, and enjoy the tropical fruits while you will be listening to the sound of "Southern Vietnamese folk music" performed by the islanders. Here we also can join the daily activities of the local people and enjoy the atmosphere of this beautiful natural countryside.

Your expectations will be fulfilled by final boat trip back to My Tho on the Tan Thach natural canal. Continue our drive to Cai Be, further in the Mekong Delta for overnight.
 
Day 2: Cai Be Floating Market – Vinh Long - Saigon (B/L)
After breakfast in hotel, transfer to the Cai Be tourist boat station and board our private boat. The program will start with the visit of Cai Be colorful floating market cruising among local barges full of fruits and vegetables. Then, an optional stop can be made at local workshops where you can see how to make rice paper, coconut candy and pop-rice, pop-corn...

The rowing boat will take you deeper into the countryside on smaller canals and to enjoy the peaceful time. It is so interesting to see traditional houses made of wood and palm tree leaves and see some activities of the local farmers with an opportunity to make contacts with them and see how they catch fish... We can walk around and then we will enjoy some kinds of fruits when listening to the
traditional music.

One more thing to do in this trip is biking! It will be so amazing to bike on village paths to see the local farms, houses, real life and the ancestral ways to pick up fruits in Mekong Delta. Enjoy lunch at a local restaurant. After lunch, continue the cruise to Vinh Long city where we will meet our driver again for the transfer back to Saigon. Arrive in Saigon in late afternoon; drop off at your hotel. End of the trip.
