Let’s join us and cruise down the Mekong River to explore lively local people daily life. The Cruise will also lead you to enter the networks of canals to visit beautiful landscapes and get to know more about traditional crafting art by visiting traditional bricks and title factories along the river.
Meet us at Cai Be jetty at 10:00 am. Your crew is set to welcome you aboard with cold towels and a refreshing drink while the Cai Be Princess sampan sets off for its leisurely cruise towards Tan Phong Islet.
From the boat’s unique vantage point, observe life as it is lived along the river – endless boats both big and small, people working the fields, and brilliant landscapes in every shade of green. Once at Tan Phong Islet, take a short cycling trip through the villages and fruit gardens, looking out in particular for the red, spiky rambutan with its deliciously sweet, fresh, the specialty of the islet.
Make stops along the way to visit local cottage industries where families make everything from rice paper and rice flour cakes to roof panels from water coconut fronds and home wares from water hyacinths. From the islet, travel via rowing sampan through the
peaceful, narrow canals, back to the Cai Be Princess where you’ll continue on to the village of Phu An.
Your cruise ends at Le Longanier Restaurant. Lunch is served in this elegant colonial-style villa set in a lush tropical garden by the river surrounded by fruit trees, giving you a sense of how the privileged class lived in Indochina times. After lunch at approximately 2:30 pm, take a short walk along the canal towards Ba Bon Bridge where your personal vehicle awaits to drive you back to Ho Chi Minh City.
Prices are in USD, per person.
