                              Saigon - Mekong delta
                      2 days/1 night homestay in Cai Rang district


The Mekong delta is the southernmost region of Vietnam. It is often referred to as the
rice bowl of Vietnam as it produces three harvests per year. The fertile Mekong Delta is
also famous for its tropical fruits and flowers. The Delta area marks the end of a 4,500km
journey made by the Mekong River after having traveled through six countries.
Traditional transportation in the Delta is by boat along a vast network of canals and
channels. Boating along these canals and visiting the floating markets always proves to
be a fascinating and rewarding experience for all visitors...

Itinerary

Day 1: Saigon – My Tho – Ben Tre - Can Tho, homestay (L,D)

- 7:30am - 7:40am, pick up at your hotel, then travel by bus to My Tho – 9:30 AM, board
a wooden motor boat to Unicorn Island. On this boat along the river’s bank, you’ll be
passing through natural creeks, quiet villages and watch rural people going to work. You
will see an interesting fishermen's port, stilt houses (half on land, half on water). One of
the boat’s stops during this trip is at a large orchard that has many different types of tasty
tropical            fruits             for            your           enjoyments.
- Another boat stop is for the Turtle Island 1 hr from the previous one. Here, on a small
row boat, you’ll see interesting transportation modes that local people use to move
around. From there, we’ll take you to a bee farm where you have a chance to taste a
tasteful cup of authentic honey tea while checking out the folk music that is typical to
only the people in Southern Vietnam. After that we’ll take you to a village where you can
smell the flavor of coconut candies being made many yards away. This is a great chance
to witness how village people make candy and handcrafted items from coconuts. You
might learn that those people can amazingly make dozens of useful products out of
coconut                                           trees.
As your journey ends, you will return to My Tho by motorized boat and then travel to
Can Tho. When arrive in Can Tho, transfer by motor boat to a small village in Cai Rang
district. Check into your riverside cottage. In the afternoon, go cycling or walking around
the village to experience the rural lifestyle of the Mekong Delta people. Join a family as
they prepare dinner, then share the meal with them. Overnight in your riverside
cottage.
