Spend a day exploring the markets, emerald rice fields and lush back waterways of the Mekong Delta. Leave the city behind and journey to Cai Be and Vinh Long. Embark on a cruise through the many tributaries of the Mekong, walk along the famous ‘Monkey Bridges’ that link the villages together and wander amongst vibrant tropical fruit gardens.

Start early in the morning for our 2-hour drive to Cai Be, where we board our private boat for a cruise through the busy Cai Be floating market. We then make a stop to visit some local cottage industries such as the coconut candy workshop, learn how to make puffed-rice, puff-corn, or witnessing the process of making rice paper. Continuing with our cruise through the maze of canals the criss-cross the An Binh island, we enjoy devouring the fresh tropical fruits of the Delta, while having a short traditional music show performed by local artists. Lunch at a local garden restaurant. After lunch, we have a short walk around the island to see how the people here make their living and enjoying their life. We carry on to a Nursery garden, where you can see most of the Delta fruits seedlings. The final point of visit will be a Brick & pottery kiln. At the end of the afternoon, it’s a 2.5-hour drive back to Ho Chi Minh City.
