Life in the Mekong Delta is very much lived on, by or near the water. Stilt houses built to withstand the rise and fall of the river, entire markets conducted by boat and people fishing, bathing and washing clothes are everyday scenes in this watery world.
Explore the fascinating delta aboard our sampans, designed using natural materials such as rattan, bamboo and exotic wood in keeping with their surroundings. Our cruises can be customized just for you – private or join-in, ranging from a few hours to 1, 2 or 3 days.
Meet us at the Cai Be Jetty at 10:00 am. The crew welcomes you aboard with cold towels and a refreshing drink while the Cai Be Princess Sampan sets off for its leisurely cruise on the busy waterways of the Mekong Delta.
Proceed to Hoa Khanh, a remote unspoiled area offering scenic views. Observe from the comfort of your sampan life as it plays out on the riverbanks the people, the stunning landscapes while your attentive crew serves you tea and seasonal fruit.
In Hoa Khanh, take a bicycle for a better view of the surrounding countryside, ending up at Ba Kiet Ancient House, built in the 19th century. Alternatively, opt for a gentle stroll instead or simply relax on board. We’ll make stops along the way to explore local cottage industries including the making of coconut candy and puffed rice (the local equivalent of popcorn).
We make our way to Le Longanier Restaurant where lunch is served in this exquisite colonial-style villa set in a lush tropical garden by the river and surrounded by fruit trees, giving you a sense of privileged life during Indochinese times. After lunch, at around 2:30 pm, take a short walk along a small canal back to Ba Bon Bridge where your personal vehicle awaits to drive you to Ho Chi Minh City.
Prices are in USD, per person.
