Picked up at our District 1 hotel at 7.30 AM and bussed to Cai Be some 2.5 hours away. Straight on a day boat for a look at the floating market. By the time you get there most of the market is gone, but well worth a look. Visited a village and were shown rice popcorn and coconut candy being made. Sampled some rice wine (whoa). Back on the boat, visited an island and had lunch. Basic meal included with cheap drinks on offer. Back on the boat to another area where we were put on small row boats and taken up a canal to see locals going about their normal day. Visited a plantation and sampled local fruits, tea and song and dance. Back on the boat, return to Cai Be and drive back to HCMC arriving at about 6.30 PM. Well worth the visit, time and money (about $25 each). Our guide Hung was very good, and according to him the best looking man in Vietnam.
