Around 10:00, gather at Cai Be Jetty to board the Cai Rang Princess Sampan. You will be kindly welcomed with a first drink and a cold towel before the cruise begins its busy journey through the Mekong Delta. 

En route, you will be able to observe the vibrant lifestyle of the rivulet area. There are all types of boat floating around, from fishing boats to cargo barges loaded with fruit and vegetables.

While enjoying tea and local seasonal fruit, immerse yourself in the refreshing ambiance and serene landscapes. 

Upon reaching Tan Phong Islet, we hop on a rowing boat trip through the canal's hidden mangroves.

Mind to return to the sampan on time to make our way to a 19th-century house.

Then, our last attraction is a local cottage industry that makes coconut candy and puffed rice. 

At lunchtime, transfer all the guests to the Le Longanier Restaurant. You will be served an authentic colonial-styled villa set in the green background of a tropical garden by the river. This meal gives you a brief sense of privileged life during Indochinese times.


Take a break after lunch til 14:30 then we take a leisure walk along a small canal towards the Ba Bon Bridge. There will be a personal vehicle waiting for you to take a 2-hour drive to Ho Chi Minh city and conclude our full-day trip here.

Nam, our guide, picked us up at 7:40 from our hotel for the journey out of the city, through the suburbs, and into the countryside. After around 2 hours, we parked and boarded a river boat. We accomplished this by jumping between different vessels. We explored the river, passing by fish traps and coconut… More
