From 3am in the early morning, rafts and boats are crowded because Cai Be is one of the biggest wholesale markets of the region. Traders live on the river and some link their lives with boats like their mobile house for generations. There are chances for you to get many different types of seasonal fresh fruits. Continue the journey to traditional local handmade product villages such as green rice flakes, rice paper, coconut candy, rice wine...We will then have lunch in a local family in an ancient house. After lunch time and relax, we spend time strolling around the area which is surrounded by the river to learn more about the water life. While wandering, you will be offered plenty of fruits by the local.
Afternoon, we continue our journey to Can Tho, the capital city of the Western region. Stay overnight in a comfortable hotel.
