Discover the Mekong Delta on this multi-faceted tour. Visit a floating market, enjoy free local treats in a village, and explore the countryside by bike.
What to Expect
Depart for Cai Be at 7:30. From the bus you will see the green paddy fields stretching towards the horizon. Arriving in Cai Be after approximately 3 hours of driving, you’ll board a motorized boat that takes you to the floating market. Spend 1 hour soaking in this unique market experience.
Next, your row boat will zigzag through a maze of shadow canals to arrive at a great orchard where you can freely taste many famous tropical fruits of Vietnam and watch locals performing their daily chores. Then discover how coconut candy, crispy rice cake and ceramics are made here - treats are served free with premium hot tea.
After this, the tour will proceed by bicycles. Explore a village, check out several rural shops or relax on a hammock for a short rest. Stopping by a marketplace, you can walk around to see how and what the rural people of Vietnam sell. You are encouraged to interact with the vendors and see how friendly and respectful they are. You might also buy many interesting things for very little money.
After spending ½ hour at the market, the tour proceeds by bus to Saigon/Ho Chi Minh City, arriving at around 19:00 PM.
