Mekong Delta, where the mighty Mekong River and Gulf of Thailand meets is one of Vietnam’s most fertile regions, homing to enormous lush paddy fields, fruit orchards and waterworld of floating markets. Choosing one day Mekong River Cruise, holiday – makers would have remarkable chance to glimpse into the agrarian life, abundant coconut lines and cultural diversity of the hustle yet tranquil southern Delta region. Also, as winding the way through the tributaries of the Mekong Delta, all the guests could be able to closely observe the daily rituals of local inhabitants, especially participate in the bustling Cai Be floating market. Visiting an orchard farm, handicraft village, and sampling tasty local dishes would also provide travelers unforgettable experience before ending the well – organized tour.
Picking up from your hotel at 07:00 AM to approach Cai Be floating market by van; we would make a short stop at Tan An town to take photos of abundant flat rice fields. Upon arriving Cai Be, we start boating to Cai Be Floating Market for first – hand experience of various commercial activities such exchanging goods, fruit and many other commodities on their vessels.
Landing on the small villages to contemplate panoramic views and fresh fruits; we keep cruising to Vinh Long Province via small canals to enjoy the charm of the Upper Mekong Delta. We also pay a visit to some hand – made family business products such as the coconut candy mill and the crispy rice popcorn. We continue visiting Binh Hoa Phuoc village known as the green pearl of Vinh Long town where you can pamper yourself in incredible nature before lunch break.
Having lunch with fresh river food served in the garden served with melodies of Southern Vietnamese folk music, then we would take a nice walk through the bonsai garden before getting on the van in Vinh Long to return to hotel in Ho Chi Minh City at 17:00
