The four-day, three-night tour travels from Ho Chi Minh City to Cai Be, firstly visiting the local floating market before continuing to a local factory to see where local goods like ‘pop-rice’ are produced. Travelers then take a cruise to Dong Hoa Island to sample some local cuisine for lunch before moving to Can Tho where they will spend the first night.
The second day of the fully-customizable Vietnam tour cruises travelers to Cai Rang, a maze of floating boats that create a rare and fascinating marketplace. Travelers can shop at the floating stalls which sell an abundant variety of fresh fruits before going to visit the enchanting bamboo basket-making hamlet of Long Thanh.
Day three of the fully customizable tour pays visit to Chau Doc market, which overlooks the confluence of three rivers and is a great place to take pictures as well as browse the bustling market. It’s then back on board for a trip to Chau Giang District to visit a small mosque, catching glimpses of floating houses and catfish farms.
In the afternoon travelers can scale to the peak of Sam Mountain – an important pilgrimage site which offers sublime views of the surrounding plains of both Vietnam and Cambodia.
This Vietnam tour is currently available with a discount of 10% when taken before 31 December 2013.
