Mekong Cai Be Floating Market Full Day Tour
Meet and greet at your hotel at 7.00am. Start on an excursion to Cai Be in the Mekong Delta known as the country’s ‘rice-basket’. Embark on a 3-hour drive with ever-changing views - from the rapidly developing Saigon city to the peaceful delta. On arrival, board a wooden motorized boat to explore life and agriculture on the river. The first stop is the bustling Cai Be floating market, filled with number of boats bursting with fruits, vegetables, and other products along the river banks. Traders have lived on the river in their boats for generations. After another 20-minute cruise, leave your boat, and enjoy a 10-minute walk on narrow lane watching the world go by. A family-run factory is the next stop. Visit an ancient house where four generations of family members are living together and have lunch there. After a lunch filled with Mekong Delta specialties, you can also take a stroll around the orchard to learn how it contributes to the family’s livelihood. Either walk or take a rowing sampan back to the boat. Cruise back to the dock with a stop en route at a brick factory. Return to your hotel at about 4.00pm.
