Book this tour Vinh Long – Cai Be Floating Market
The Mekong Delta is the southern most 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 4,500 km 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.
 

VINH LONG

An hour further south from My Tho is the riverside town of Vinh Long. The canal network and villages surrounding Vinh Long are more rural than those seen in My Tho, and are perhaps more representative of village life in the Mekong Delta. The trip to Vinh Long takes about three hours from Ho Chi Minh City, with at least one hour spent on ferries crossing major tributaries. The first ferry crossing is at Cai Be. After the crossing, it is best to have a break from the drive by taking a scenic sampan cruise through the nearby waterways. During the cruise one can see local cottage industries such as fishing, boat building, rice and fruit cultivation, and production of rice paper - a staple of Vietnamese cuisine. Local seafood specialties include a variety of fresh-water fish. The best place to try local dishes is, probably Mr. Giao's Restaurant, an outdoor eatery set in a bonsai garden.

FLOATING MARKET

This bustling river market runs from 5am to 5pm, but is best early in the morning. Wholesalers on large boats moor here, each specializing in one or more types of fruit or vegetables. Customers cruise the market in smaller boats and can easily find what they are looking for as the larger boats hang samples of their goods from tall wooden poles.

DEPARTURE TIME: 7:30AM

This trip provides an over view of this typical Vietnam. On the way you can see green paddy fields stretching towards the horizon (3 hours drive). 

After arrival in Cai Be, we will on board for an exploration of lush vegetations of Mekong Delta and lively floating market buyers bargaining. 

Next a rowing boat rides on the maze of shady canals to arrive at a local orchard to enjoy the local tropical fruits and visit the daily activities the handicraft villages of local people. 

Breaktime for lunch at the orchard fruit garden. From here have a pleasant time riding bicycles to the villages, sightseeing or relaxing on the hammock. 

Then continue on boat to Vinh Long city for a land market, the bus will take you back to Saigon with a stop at Mekong Restop. 

Arrive back in Sai Gon about 7:30pm
