Full description
Your full-day adventure begins with a two-hour drive from Ho Chi Minh City to Mekong Delta. Upon arrival, you’ll board a boat cruise and visit the remarkable Cai Be Floating Market, a local meeting point for buying and selling agricultural products. While exploring the market, you’ll witness local business activities right on the water and get a feel for the way of life of people in the South West region, or simply relax as you float along the river.

You’ll then stop over at a local house where you’ll get a unique opportunity to see how people here make coconut candy, rice-paper, rice-pop corn, and rice wine. You’ll then leave Cai Be for Tan Phong Islet, where a maze of shady creeks will surely fascinate you. After riding a rowing-boat down a small channel, you’ll have the chance to spend some time enjoying traditional music and tropical fruits in this special location. You’ll enjoy a traditional lunch at a local home, including a popular regional dish of ‘Elephant Ear Fish’, before making the journey back to Ho Chi Minh City.
