Enjoy this overnight trip from Saigon to experience Cai Be and Can Tho. Visit the region's amazing floating markets and go for an energizing bicycle riding, before enjoying a night in a traditional local homestay or hotel.
What to Expect
Take a trip out of bustling Saigon to experience a different side of Vietnamese culture. Visit picturesque towns and countryside villages, and visit the amazing floating market at Cai Be.
Day 1: Saigon - Cai Be - Vinh Long - Can Tho
Starting our day at 06:30, you will be picked up and depart for Cai Be, which is about a three-hour drive. Upon arrival, board a motorized boat that takes you to the floating market and spend an hour there for an experience that you won't find anywhere else in the world.
Next, your boat will zigzag through a maze of shaded canals to arrive at a great orchard where you can freely taste many famous tropical Vietnamese fruits and watch locals go about their daily chores.
Then, we will ride bicycles and roam through a village to check out several rural shops, or we can also relax in a hammock for a short rest. We’ll see how coconut candy and crispy rice cakes are made here (served free with premium hot tea).
After this, we will arrive at a marketplace and walk around to see how and what the rural people of Vietnam sell. We encourage interacting with the vendors to see for yourself how friendly and respectful they are. You might also buy plenty of interesting things for very little money. We will spend about half an hour here and then board our car to travel to Can Tho.
Overnight at homestay in Can Tho. Lunch and Dinner are included today.
Day 2: Can Tho - Cai Rang - Sai Gon
After breakfast, hop aboard a motor boat for a long distance trip to discover the area's largest floating marketplace. From there, cruise through small channels to visit a rice noodle making village and a large rice mill. Then, we’ll stop at Can Tho market and make our way back to Saigon. Our trip will finish in Saigon at around 17:00.
