What to Expect
Day 1: Cai Be - Boat Trip - Overnight in Chau Doc 

Depart at 8:00am to begin our amazing adventure. Our first stop is the Cai Be Pier along the mighty Mekong River. Sit back and relax as our sampan along the serene canals. These hidden waterways are engulfed in lush vegetation and local villages where you can admire the colors and culture alike. 

Next up we get onto Tan Phong island. After a quick stop-off at a tasty fruit orchard, we will experience the enchanting music of Vietnam as guests of a local performance and take a guided bicycle tour of this marvelous island. Lunch will be Mekong delicacies which include freshly made spring rolls, fried pumpkin flower, and beautiful braised pork soaked in coconut juice 

After fuel up, we’ll transfer back to our boat and into the smaller canals of the delta. Here we can get up close and be a part of the daily life of local people and farmers. We will see the handicraft of local merchants preparing delicious coconut candy, rice-wine, unique hand-crafted pottery and bricks made from scratch. Then we’ll head to the Vinh Long Pier and market where you can see even more of the specialties Mekong has to offer. Finally we will board the van to Chau Doc where we stay overnight! 

Day 2: Chau Doc - Tra Su Bird Sanctuary - Overnight in Can Tho 

This morning we will check out early ready for a scenic drive to the amazing Tra Su Bird Sanctuary. At this peaceful, tranquil location we will pass through canals in the forest, to observe wading birds. Prepare to be dazzled by this enchanting place, filled with mossy green waterways lined with beautiful cajuput trees. Keep your eyes out for some of the amazing wildlife that abounds here including birds of paradise and storks. 

After Tra Su, we will drive to visit the impressive Ba Chua Xu temple set at the foot of the Sam Mountain. Once we have completed our visit here we will take a unique Xe Loi bicycle rickshaw trip through the surrounding villages. We will end at Ba Sa fish square before driving to Can Tho for our overnight stay. Tonight, we’ll have option to visit a local night market! 

Day 3: Cai Rang Floating Market - Vinh Trang Pagoda - Ho Chi Minh City 

On day three we’ll get up early and head straight out to make the most of the day. We’ll board our own private boat to head to Cai Rang, the biggest floating market in the whole of Asia. You will get to experience local produce being sold first-hand from boat to boat. You’ll get the chance to buy produce of your own and you can even sip your morning coffee at one of the awesome floating coffee shops. 

Then we back to the hotel for some well-deserved breakfast. Having checked out, we’ll head to My Tho to visit the breathtaking Vinh Trang pagoda. After what promises to be an interesting and enjoyable day, we’ll head back to Ho Chi Minh City and drop you back to your accommodation.
