Wake up well-rested to the sound of the Mekong River and get ready for another exciting day of sightseeing in the Mekong Delta.
At 6.30 the cruise vessel sets off for a sunrise cruise. Let’s watch the locals go about their daily work drying exotic fruits and building ships on the wooden yards while enjoying an early breakfast.
After breakfast, we will board a sampan boat to the Cai Rang floating market. This is a vibrant and bustling wholesale market in the Mekong Delta, where local traders gather on boats to trade an array of fresh fruits, vegetables, and other regional products.
On even dates, you will explore the small channels of the Mekong Delta around Cai Be with a small sampan or by foot. Marvel at the sheer abundance of exotic fruits, vegetables, and skilfully handcrafted regional products.
We will pull up to the boats to talk and bargain with the merchants. We will also visit some of the local candy and cake-making factories or boat through the green water landscape to see local houses, verdant orchards, and ship-building yards.
After visiting, we’ll disembark the boat at around 11.00 — 11.30h on the pier and enjoy lunch at a local restaurant.
Sit back in the shuttle (bus or car) and watch the water landscape from a land perspective until you reach Chau Doc where we bring you to your hotel.
Tonight continue your free time to explore Chau Doc, a charming riverside town in the Mekong Delta, known for its rich cultural heritage, vibrant markets, and stunning views of the river and surrounding landscapes.
