What to Expect
You will leave the center of Ho Chi Minh City at 7:30am and reach Cai Be at 9:30 AM. You will be brought at the first stop-over at Cao Dai Temple Cai Be and Cai Be Cathedral.

After that, you will embark on the boat to visit the inland and floating markets of Cai Be to observe the daily life of local people. You will buy fresh tropical fruits right at locals own boats and have the chance to talk to them and learn more about their own culture along with their daily life. Leaving the market, you will continue with a hand-rowing boat tour to discover the exciting Mekong river life. The small boat will travel through the tiny canals and lead to some interesting spots.

Then, you will head to Tan Phong Island where you can take a short rest, have a drink and taste the local fresh fruits. Next, you will cycle around Tan Phong Island to visit the traditional handcraft workshops of handbags, rice papers, and wooden tables and chairs. On schooldays you will be able to see the local village school. Stop at a local farmer's house to enjoy a cup of tea and local specialties like banana candies. You can try plucking the fruits at the host's garden and talk to them in order to understand how local farmers take care of their gardens.

Saying goodbye to the hospitable host, you will keep on biking to the bang conical hat (nón bàng) workshop. You will cycle back to Mekong Rustic Restaurant for lunch with local food and break before embarking on boat to leave Tan Phong Island for the pier to head back to Ho Chi Minh City at 5:30pm.
