What You'll Do
  • Meet the locals of the Mekong Delta and its islands
  • Cruise along the upper Mekong River
  • Visit fruit orchards, coconut groves and bee-keeping farms
  • Travel by sampan along the canals under a green canopy of water coconut trees
Overview
Experience the everyday life of the Mekong Delta on a private full-day tour from Ho Chi Minh City. Purchase local fruits from floating markets, pick fruit at a farmer's house and visit artisan workshops to learn how local crafts are made.
What to Expect
Depart Ho Chi Minh City at 07:30 and journey to Cai Be by 09:30. Visit the stunning Cao Dai Temple and French-Gothic style Cai Be Cathedral.

Then, climb aboard a boat to travel along the inland waterways of the Mekong and visit the floating markets of Cai Be. Experience the everyday life of the Mekong Delta and join the locals as you purchase fresh tropical fruits from their boats. Chat to them about their culture and daily lives before proceeding by sampan (a hand-rowed boat) through some of the tiny canals.

Head to Tan Phong Island for a short rest and a drink. Taste the local fresh fruits before a bike ride around the island. Visit traditional handicraft workshops where the artisans make handbags, rice paper and wooden tables and chairs. See the children of the village school on schooldays, and stop at a farmer's house for a cup of tea and local specialties such as banana candies. Try your hand at picking the fruit in your host's garden, and chat to them about how they take care of their gardens.

Next, cycle to a workshop where the famous conical hats (nón bàng) are made, before going to a rustic restaurant for a lunch of local food. Depart Tan Phong Island by boat and travel to the pier for your return journey to Ho Chi Minh City, where the estimated time of arrival is 17:30.
