Arriving at around 10:00am, we board our motorized boat to journey through Cai Be floating market. Here, we will experience how life functions on the delta, as we view the intricacies of commerce – how merchants purchase products from local farmers. During our cruise the town’s secluded canals, we will visit some workshops, see the locals making pop rice cakes, rice paper cakes, coconut candies and products from coconut trees.

Special thing of Mekong delta tour CaiBe will be the wooden sampan padlling down narrow natural waterways. Stopping at a local home to try seasonal fruits (such as longan, pineapple, watermelon, rambutan, papaya, jackfruit etc…). We continue walking through the village to get back to our boat which is waiting to bring us to another island for lunch served with many Vietnamese’s delicious dishes.
Time to relax and have a short walk to garden of longan and durian nearby. We get on board and cruise back to the quay around 2:00pm. Then we keep walking to AnThai village where people collect the manioc chips after full day drying in the sunshine.
