After your local guide collects you from your Ho Chi Minh City hotel, head to the Cai Be Floating Market with a photo stop in Tan An town. Board your motorboat and snap pictures to your heart’s content as market traders go about their daily business.
Next, visit a local candy-maker and then cruise through tiny villages, orchards, and narrow canals to pretty Tan Phong Island. Here, learn to cook Vietnamese dishes and then feast on the fruits of your labor—fresh-cooked river fare—in a tropical garden.
Sated and rested, hop aboard a bicycle to explore the island’s village paths with their orchards and bonsai gardens. Your guide will introduce you to locals who’ll happily share details about their lives in the Mekong Delta. Finally, cruise back to Cai Be and board your bus to Ho Chi Minh City, where your guide will drop you back at your hotel.
