Itinerary
Let’s Go!

Once we all jump aboard our own private vehicle, we will quickly depart for the mighty Mekong River! The journey will take around three hours and will give you a chance to learn all about the course of the river and how it arrives in Vietnam from its origins in the snowy mountains of Tibet. You’ll also get to gaze at the spectacular surrounding scenery as we drive through the wonderfully fertile region. Take the chance to glimpse at the local way of life as we pass through one of the county’s agricultural hotspots.

Discover Cai Be & Local Vietnamese Culture

Once we arrive at Cai Be, we’ll board our private sampan (a traditional, motorized boat) to begin our unforgettable cruise along the Mekong River. First, we’ll experience a small traditional floating market. This is an unmissable chance to get an insight into trading away from tourist-focused markets of the city. Expect to be dazzled by an array of colours, smells and sounds. Keep your camera to hand to snap some beautiful shots!

Rowing Sampan & Guided Bike Ride

After the floating market, we’ll change to the rowing boats and go into the smaller, secluded canals of the delta. Here we can get up close and be a part of the daily life of local people and farmers. Next up, we get back on dry land while we visit Tan Phong island. After a quick stop-off at a tasty fruit orchard, we will experience the enchanting music of South-West Vietnam as we enjoy a local performance. We’ll also take a guided bicycle tour of this marvellous island. Along the way, we will visit local families and learn how they use the land to craft everything from delicate rice paper to the sturdy roofs of their homes. The families will treat us to Mekong delicacies for lunch which include freshly made spring rolls, fried pumpkin flower and beautiful braised pork soaked in coconut juice.

Explore More Of The Delta

After our special Mekong lunch, we’ll transfer back to our boat to see the handicraft of local merchants preparing coconut candy and pop-rice. Finally, our last stop before heading back to Ho Chi Minh City is the Cao Dai temple where we’ll learn the history of an ancient native religion all while being surrounded by the incredible art of the temple.
