2-day Discover Mekong Delta With Mekong River Cruise
On this 2 day tour, travel by wooden boat to Cai Be and explore the Mekong Delta in all its beauty.
Stroll through fruit orchards and paddy fields before spending the night onboard the boat.
Take a sampan boat to the famous Cai Be floating markets! Marvel at the sheer abundance of exotic fruits, vegetables and skilfully handcrafted regional products.
We will also visit some of the local candy and cake making factories or sail through the green water landscape to see local houses, verdant orchards and ship-building yards.
This will truly be an unforgettable experience, create memories that will last a lifetime.
The floating markets in the Mekong Delta are no tourist markets but wholesale markets where the produce of the Mekong Delta-like fruits and vegetables are traded.
For this reason, the number of boats on the market fluctuates depending on harvesting seasons and market demand. Furthermore, modern wholesale markets are becoming more popular in Vietnam. This can result in decreasing numbers of boats being present on the markets.
On even dates, you will have lunch at the Mekong Rest Stop. On odd dates, lunch is served in Vinh Long City.
