Full description
Meet your private English-speaking guide at your port and travel in a comfortable, air-conditioned vehicle to the Mekong Delta. Take in the countless scenes rice paddies and orchards as you drive through the countryside. Learn about the course of the river and the agricultural way of life as you observe traditional Vietnamese life pass right before your eyes. A private sampan (traditional motorised boat) will be waiting for you as we arrive at Cai Be. Embark on an unforgettable exploration of a fascinating waterway. The river here is crowded with floating markets selling colorful fruits, vegetables, flowers, and seasonal goods. Swap your sampan for a rowing boat and venture into the smaller, more secluded canals of the delta. The quieter canals are the perfect place to witness a slower pace of life as we pass under tropical canopies and paddle the serene water. Explore the island of Tan Phong and enjoy distinctive South-West Vietnamese music with a live performance. Bikes will be provided if you wish to explore this beautiful island further. Along the way, visit local families and learn how they use the land to craft everything from delicate rice paper to the sturdy roofs of their homes. Enjoy Mekong delicacies for lunch which include freshly made spring rolls, fried pumpkin flower and beautiful braised pork soaked in coconut juice. Visit Cao Dai temple and admire the art on the walls. Your guide will then take you back to port in plenty of time for your cruise departure.
