Mekong Delta is very famous for its fascinating floating market and fruit orchards as well as its friendly people. The 2-hour drive will take you through the beauty of typical Southern Vietnamese countryside where you can enjoy a view of immense rice paddies, coconut plantations and beautiful rivers.
When we reach Cai Be, a boat trip is ready for your experience. Boarding the boat, we then start cruising along the Mekong river. On the way, we will discover local trading boat, learn about the life of people living on the water. (the earlier we reach the river, the more boats we will see)
Our boat will then keep on cruising to an onshore village where we get off the boat and pay our visit to some local houses and learn about daily life of local people as well as the way they earn their own living.
Local business will be observed through a visit to a coconut candy workshop, rice wine, rice paper and pop rice making places. After that, we will pay our visit to a fruit orchard and a typical traditional house in another village of Cai Be….Your delicious lunch with awesome local food will be served in the house as well. When lunch ends, it is time for you to have a new experience! You will be transferred to a hand-rowing boat cruising along a beautiful shady canal to observe more and more local life on the both sides of the river. Then, we are heading back to Ho Chi Minh city.
