Whether you're travelling to Ho Chi Minh City on business or for pleasure, this short tour makes a fascinating add-on.

Day 1
Ho Chi Minh City to Can Tho

Your trip begins this morning as you travel south, into the heart of the Mekong Delta. En route, you'll visit a unique Cao Dai Temple and pass farmers tending their fields and drying their produce on the sides of the road. On arrival at Cai Be Port you'll board your boat and experience your first taste of Delta life as you pass traditional house boats and a small floating market. You'll visit a coconut candy workshop and then continue along the narrow waterways, stopping for lunch with a local family and visiting a nursery before disembarking and continuing on to Can Tho. After checking in at your hotel, you'll enjoy a walking tour in the late afternoon, including a visit to the bustling local market and the riverside Central Tourist Market.

Day 2
Can Tho to Ho Chi Minh City

This morning you'll board your boat for a visit to the fascinating floating market at Cai Rang, where local farmers trade their produce on the water as they have done for centuries. Afterwards, you'll continue on to an orchard, to sample some tropical fruits and try some local tea, then stroll through the local village of Binh Thuy to get an authentic taste of village life along one of the smaller Mekong canals. Your tour comes to an end this afternoon, as you drive back to Ho Chi Minh City.
