Full description
Day 1:

After an early morning pick–up from your hotel in Saigon, depart for Can Tho or Cai Be. Board the wooden cruise vessel around noon, savor a delicious lunch and sit back as the boat starts along the river, admiring the fantastic scenery. In the afternoon, disembark for a guided stroll through a village and the surrounding fruit orchards or rice fields. Back on board, relax on deck as the sun sets over the magnificent Mekong river. Ending the day with a delicious on–board dinner, settle in for your overnight stay on board.

Day 2:

Set off for a sunrise cruise at 6:30 AM. Watch the locals go about their daily work while enjoying an early breakfast. Board a sampan boat to Cai Rang floating market, the region’s busiest and most lively, and bargain with the merchants. Visit local candy and cake making factories or navigate through the green water landscape to see local houses, verdant orchards and ship-building yards. Alternatively, discover the nearby town by foot or explore the small side canals of the Mekong river on bicycle. Resume your cruise journey as lunch is served. In the afternoon, make another trip to one of the exotic villages.

Day 3:

After breakfast and an early start on the Mekong river, visit another floating market and experience the authentic life of the Mekong people. Take another sampan trip right into the lush rural landscape, the fertile fields and the exuberant green. The Mekong Delta boat tour ends around 11:00 AM on the pier, as you are transferred back to your hotel, with a lunch stop on the way.
