Once you arrive in Cai Be, you will board your private sampan (a traditional, motorized boat) and begin your unforgettable cruise. First you will have the chance to see and experience a small traditional floating market. An unmissable chance to get an insight into trading away from the tourist focused markets of the city. Expect to be dazzled by an array of colours, smells and sounds.
After the floating market, change to rowing boats and go into the smaller, secluded canals of the delta. Here you can get up close and be a part of the daily life of local people and farmers. Next you will take a visit to Tan Phong island. After a quick stop-off at a tasty fruit orchard, you will experience the enchanting music of South-West Vietnam as whilst enjoying a local performance. You will also have the opportunity to take a guided bicycle tour of this marvellous island. Along the way you will visit local families and learn how they use the land to craft everything from delicate rice paper to the sturdy roofs of their homes. The families will treat you to Mekong delicacies for lunch which include freshly made spring rolls, fried pumpkin flower and beautiful braised pork soaked in coconut juice. Scooter accommodation can also be provided.
After your special Mekong lunch, you will transfer back to your boat to see the handicraft of local merchants preparing coconut candy and pop-rice. Finally your last stop before heading back to Ho Chi Minh City is at the Cao Dai temple where you will learn the history of an ancient native religion whilst marvelling at the marvellous art inside the temple.
