Your experience


After the pick-up from your hotel, you will be transferred by air-conditioned vehicle to the town of Cai Be, located approximately 100 miles (160 km) southwest of Ho Chi Minh City.

On our way we will make some stops to take photos of the beautiful landscapes and typical farmers working in the rice fields.

Upon arrival in Cai Be, hop on a motorboat with your small group and visit the Cai Be Floating Markets, established in the 19th century on Tien River. Observe locals trading fruit and other wholesale goods, hung from poles aboard boats and rafts.

Then, disembark for a short walk to a coconut candy factory and learn how the sweets are produced.

You'll have the opportunity to purchase some candy before meandering with your guide around the small villages of the Mekong Delta. Visit a fruit orchard and plantation, and listen to the traditional southern Vietnamese music "Don Ca Tai Tu" which combines elements from court and folk music.

Afterwards, we'll cruise along the Mekong Delta to Tan Phong Island. Here, your small group can join a halfday cooking class with your guide. You'll learn how to prepare Vietnamese dishes from several regions. Try your hand at making savory specialties like fried elephant-ear fish, grilled steak cooked in a bamboo cylinder, grilled fish in banana leaf and fish braised in a clay pot.

Enjoy your delicious creations with your fellow food lovers before hopping on a bicycle to ride along the village path. Pass fruit orchards and a bonsai gardens as you explore the neighborhood with your guide and mingle with the local villagers.

Your day trip ends with a boat ride back to Cai Be and the transport to your Ho Chi Minh City hotel.
