Tour's Program

This morning, leave bustling Ho Chi Minh for the 2-hour drive to the Delta town of Cai Be. On arrival, board your boat for a cruise of Cai Be floating market. Traders work the river and some have been living on these waters for generations. After visiting the market, continue to a cottage factory where ‘pop-rice’, rice paper and coconut candies are made. Lunch will be local Mekong style serving specialties of the area. Return to the boat for the cruise to Vinh Long city. Admire the scenery and the daily life of the local villagers along the way. On arrival, you will be met by your vehicle for the transfer to Vung Liem. From here cross over a tributary of the Mekong by local ferry before arriving at your homestay located on Long Island renowned for its fruit orchards and sedge fields. After dinner, spend time with the family to learn more on their life, culture and the history of this Island.
Overnight at homestay.

Wake up to the sound of the countryside. After breakfast, explore the island by bicycle (or on foot) through the village to sedge fields, to see the cutting and weaving of this grass which is used to make traditional mats. En-route visit a shrine dedicated to Thoai Ngoc Hau who was one of the founders of the area. Return to the house for lunch before taking the ferry back to Vung Liem to visit a Khmer pagoda dating back to 1377. Continue to Vinh Long city.
