Vietnam, Ho Chi Minh City and The South
Info : Cai Be with lunch at a local house
Journey south of Ho Chi Minh City by road for approximately 3 hours to the Mekong River town of Cai Be to board a motorised sampan for an introduction to life on the river. Cai Be is known for its large floating market, where displays of food produce are hung from bamboo poles over the host boat in order to attract custom.
From here the journey continues across the upper reach of the river to a maze of tributaries and fruit plantations. Barges ply the route, overloaded with rice husks used as fuel for the regions numerous brick kilns.
Depending on the season, a sample of local tropical fruit will be served with lunch in the shade of a local farmer’s home before rejoining your craft for the leisurely cruise back to Cai Be. Return to Saigon in late afternoon.

The guides at both Hanoi (Hung) and Saigon (Tei) were fantastic with great knowledge and enthusiasm, nothing seem too much trouble for them. The vehicles at both cities were very comfortable and made a huge difference to the experience esp with long transfer distances to Halong Bay/ Megong delta. All the tours were really good and carried out at a pace to suit us.
