Small-group Mekong Delta - Cai Be Village (Day Trip)

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
Cái Bè is a small village that still retains its natural beauty, busy river system, tasty food, and hospitable people. You can’t talk about Cái Bè without talking about its floating market and abundance of delicious tropical fruits. Highlight of the day is to cruise among the boats coming from all areas of the Delta, and to cycle along the trails, returning the friendly smiles and waves of local children.
  • Experience all sides of the Mekong Delta in a day from Ho Chi Minh
  • See Cai Be floating 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
What to Expect
Start with pickup from your District 1 Ho Chi Minh hotel or another central location and make the 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.
