Full Tour Itinerary

Day 1: Ho Chi Minh City to Can Tho

Your tour begins this morning as you leave Ho Chi Minh City, formerly known as Saigon, and travel south into the heart of the Mekong Delta. Along the way, you'll be able to enjoy the rural scenes of farmers tending their fields and drying their produce on the sides of the road, and will visit a unique Cao Dai Temple. You'll board your boat at Cai Be Port and get your first glimpses of Delta life as you pass traditional houseboats and a small floating market. You'll visit a coconut-candy workshop before continuing along the narrow waterways, enjoying lunch with a local family and visiting a nursery before disembarking and continuing on to Can Tho. Here you'll check in at your hotel, enjoy a late-afternoon walking tour, including a visit to the local market, and finish the day with a cocktail by the river.
