Our tour guide will pick you up at your hotel for the day tour to Mekong Delta. Depart from Ho Chi Minh city around 7:30 am, replacing the urban sprawl with endless rice paddy fields on this private transfer to the Mekong Delta.
We’re headed southwest to the river town of Cai Be for 2 hours drive. Stopping en-route at a Cao Dai Temple. CaoDaism is indigenous to South Vietnam and the colorful and unusual murals inside will truly mesmerism. Then we board our boat to journey through Cai Be’s famed floating market. Here, we will experience how life functions on the delta, as we view the intricacies of commerce--how merchants purchase produce from local farmers.
We stop at a local working shop to see locals making their local specialties like coconut candy, rice paper, pop rice and sample some of them with a shot of local rice wine. Now it’s time to try out local wooden sampans and pedal down narrow natural waterways.
Get on land of an island to walk through fruit gardens before we taste some tropical seasonal fruits (such as longan, pineapple, watermelon, rambutan, jack-fruit etc...) then go for lunch with delicious set menu.
Relaxing on a hammock before we ride a bicycle for 30 minutes to explore the village on a small country road. Re-board the wooden junk, sit back and relax to enjoy cruising along the canal for 30 minutes to Vinh Long local market. Then 3 hours drive back to Saigon. Finish the trip at your hotel !
