Leave bustling Saigon, now called Ho Chi Minh City, for the two hour drive to the town of Cai Be. On arrival board your boat for a cruise along the Delta’s waterways. Start by passing Cai Be’s floating market, then continue to a cottage factory where ‘pop-rice’, rice paper and coconut candies are made. Return to the boat for the cruise to Dong Hoa Hiep Island admiring the scenery and the daily life of the local villagers. Lunch and dinner will be Mekong style and you will spend a memorable night on board your boat on the Delta.

Accommodation: Standard Bassac Cabin

Day 2: Mekong Delta to Saigon

Crossing the Mekong on the way to Cai Rang Floating Market, you'll take in traditional sights such as rice barges, wooden ship building yards and even fruit drying along the Mekong's banks. After stopping to watch the comings and goings in this colourful floating market you say farewell to your boat and crew and begin the return journey by road to Saigon. This short trip out to experience life on the Mekong Delta makes a memorable addition to any longer stay in Vietnam.
