    Overview

    The Mekong Delta is the heart of Vietnam’s agricultural south, and is the country’s largest site for rice fields, coconut palms, fruit orchards and sugarcane groves. Children riding on the backs of water buffaloes and farmers tending to endless rice paddie fields are the backdrop of a journey here. The rural communities and friendly locals that call this region home make the Mekong Delta not only a fascinating travel destination for its landscape, but for its people as well.

    Option 1
    Option 2
    Option 1: Cruise from Cai Be to Can Tho with a visit to Cai Rang Floating Market 

    You board your comfortable river cruiser in Cai Be. After a refreshing welcome drink we show you our on-board facilities and your cosy cabin. As lunch is served, the boat starts cruising. Sit back and watch the fantastic scenery and the daily life of the Mekong Delta people. 

    In the afternoon you can disembark for a guided leisurely stroll through a village and the surrounding fruit orchards or rice fields. Meet the friendly locals and taste the local produce and fruits. 

    Get back on board and enjoy a drink at the bar or relax on deck as the sun sets over the magnificent water landscape of the Mekong river. The cruise boat will anchor for the night. The day ends with a delicious on-board dinner. You stay overnight on board on your compfortable river cruiser. 

    On day 2 you wake up well rested to the sound of the river and get ready for another exciting day of sightseeing in the Mekong Delta. At 6.30h the cruise vessel sets off for a sunrise cruise. Watch the locals go about their daily work drying exotic fruits and building ships on the wooden yards while enjoying an early breakfast.

    After breakfast, we will board a sampan boat to Cai Rang floating market, the region’s busiest and most lively markets. Marvel at the sheer abundance of exotic fruits, vegetables and skilfully handcrafted regional products. We will pull up to the boats for talking and bargaining with the merchants. After the excursion to the market it is time to start the journey back to Saigon. From Can Tho we travel by road back to Saigon. In My Tho you say good by to the Mekong Delta with a lunch break offering typical Mekong Delta dishes at Mekong Rest Stop. 

    Meals day 1: lunch, dinner; day 2: breakfast, lunch

    N. B.: The floating markets in the Mekong Delta are no tourist markets but wholesale markets where 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.

    Option 2: Cruise from Can Tho to Cai Be with a sampan excursion

    Our classic route. After the transfer from Saigon to Can Tho we receive you with a refreshing welcome drink and show you our on-board facilities and your cosy cabin. While you enjoy lunch, the boat starts cruising. Sit back and watch the fantastic scenery and the daily life of the Mekong people. 

    In the afternoon we show you typical Mekong Delta sceneries on a guided leisurely stroll through a village and the surrounding fruit orchards or rice fields. Meet the friendly locals and taste the local produce and fruits. 

    Get back on board and enjoy a drink at the bar or relax on deck as the sun sets over the magnificent water landscape of the Mekong River. The cruise boat will anchor for the night. The day ends with a delicious on-board dinner. You stay overnight on board on your compfortable river cruiser. 

    On day 2 the cruise vessel sets off at 6.30h for a sunrise cruise. Watch the locals go about their daily work drying exotic fruits or building wooden ships on the yards while enjoying an early breakfast.
