Day 1: Ho Chi Minh City - Cai Be - Overnight On Cruise

Overnight Bassac cruise: Your guide will meet you at 8am at your hotel. Leave the city and drive south to Cai Be in the Mekong delta, a journey of approximately 2 hours. The Mekong Delta is Vietnam's 'rice bowl' - a fertile region of flat farmland interlaced with thousands of waterways and tributaries of the Mekong. The delta's waters are interspersed with rice fields, colourful floating markets and isolated villages accessible only by boat.

 

Welcome onboard the Bassac river boat for your overnight cruise into the Mekong Delta. The Bassac boats are entirely built of wood, and can accommodate between 12 and 24 passengers in elegantly decorated cabins, each with air-con and private bathrooms. Each of the boats has a large bar & restaurant area, and a mostly covered lounge area on the upper deck. After embarkation the boat departs towards Cho Lach on the Tien Giang River, and lunch will be served as you pass sand and rice barges, fruit drying facilities and traditional wooden ship building yards. In the afternoon there will be a visit to a village on the banks of river Mang Thit for an opportunity to see fruit orchards, rice fields and local lifestyles. Return to the boat for a relaxing drink on board as the sunsets, before dinner is served.

 

Accommodation: Stay 1 onboard the Bassac Cruise (Standard Cabin)

 

Day 2: Can Tho - Ho Chi Minh City

Bassac Mekong Delta Cruise: Wake early for breakfast as the boat cruises towards the Tra On floating market. After seeing the morning's trading the ship then departs towards Can Tho to see the famous Cai Rang floating market. Disembark the Bassac and transfer onto a local boat to visit the floating market, and some local orchards and gardens. Disembark at the Ninh Kieu pier and private transfer to Ho Chi Minh City. Upon arrival, drop off at your hotel or further transfer to Ho Chi Minh City / Tan Son Nhat International Airport for departure at surcharge (accommodation in Ho Chi Minh City is not included).
