Tour Code: SBL14
Day 1: SaiGon – CaiBe – CanTho.(Lunch)
We depart at 8:00am and head south to the river town of Cai Be, a rural district of Tien Giang province in the Mekong Delta region of Vietnam. Arriving at around 10:30am, we board our motorized boat to journey through Cai Be floating market, one of the biggest wholesale floating markets in the region. Here, we will experience how life functions on the delta, as we view the intricacies of commerce – how merchants purchase products from local farmers. During our cruise the town’s secluded canals, we will stop at some local factories to see locals making pop rice cakes, rice paper cakes, coconut candies and products from coconut trees. We also enjoy sampan ride and pedal down narrow natural waterways. Stopping at a local home to try seasonal fruits (such as longan, pineapple, watermelon, rambutan, papaya, jackfruit etc…). Continue walking through the village to get back to our boat which is waiting to bring us to another local house for lunch served with many Vietnamese’s delicious dishes.
We board the boat again to keep on to the quay in Vinh Long province. Transfer by car to Can Tho, passing Can Tho bridge, a cable-stayed bridge over the Bassac river. Before checking in the hotel, we visit Binh Thuy ancient house, built in 1870 with French style architecture but still remained traditional features of Southern style. Overnight in Can Tho.
Day 2: CanTho – ChauDoc (Breakfast/Lunch)
An early start for a boat trip to Cai Rang floating market, the largest wholesale market in the Mekong Delta. It starts at 5:00am and runs until midday. Of course now this market is not crowded and busy as it was before, but still interesting experience for people who do not live in Mekong delta areas. Then we have a long distance cruise to Phong Dien & walk on a quiet country road to take in the magnificent scenery and get close to the locals as they go about their daily routine. Continue by car to the village of Thot Not, northwest of Can Tho to visit Bang Lang stork sanctuary. This garden has attracted thousands of stork and other kinds of birds to make nests and live here. Lunch at a local restaurant on the way. Late afternoon we hike up 3km to the sacred Sam mountain with its panoramic view over the vast plains into Cambodia & visit temple of Lady Xu, a prosperity goddess of southern Vietnam’s folk religion. Overnight in ChauDoc.
Day 3: ChauDoc – HaTien (Breakfast/Lunch)
Up early for a cruise through the floating village with tons and tons of fish farmed underneath hundreds of shelters. Continue the boat cruise to Da Phuoc, a Muslim Cham village across the river on Con Tien island from Chau Doc’s center. Here, discover the village with its famous Mubarak Mosque and watch the locals go about their traditional weaving. Tra Su cajeput forest in Tinh Bien district of the southern province of AnGiang is an ideal eco-tourism site. The man-made forest is the home of 140 species of plants and 70 of birds. Continue to Ha Tien for the night. If time permits, we visit a temple dedicated to Mac Cuu, a leader of the Chinese group who settled in this region back in the 17th century. Overnight in HaTien.
