Small-group Mekong Delta - Cai Be Village Daily Tour

Tour listed by Asiana Link
About this tour

Experiencing the Mekong Delta is a big ask on your own: you need to know your way around to discover the best bits in a day. Tick through the delta's many faces on this tour: taking in Cai Be floating market, workshops, bike and rowboat rides; plus lunch and a cooking demo at a local home. Plus, with a guide, you'll get the background you want on everything you see.

Highlights:

- Experience all sides of the Mekong Delta in a day from Ho Chi Minh

- See Cai Be flea market, workshops, gardens, and a home cooking demo

- Ride a rowboat and bike, taste fruits, and learn about local life via a guide

- Limited to 12, with lunch, entry fees, and return transport included

Start with pickup from your District 1 Ho Chi Minh hotel or another central location and make the roughly 2.5-hour journey to the Mekong port of Cai Be.

Browse a flea market and enjoy a motorboat cruise on the Mekong, passing stilted houses, rice paddies, and farms. Then, pull alongside a floating market houseboat to sample fruits before visiting cottage industries such as a coconut candy workshop. Sample coconut, taste snake wine, and see rice popcorn and rice paper being made.

Next, stop at an island to tour a fruit garden and enjoy local music before riding a hand-rowed sampan along tranquil canals. Visit a local house for a home cooking demo, and prepare a Vietnamese dish for yourself before enjoying lunch. Then, opt to either relax or take a bike ride around the local village.

Your tour then finishes at the Ho Chi Minh departure point.
