DETAILED PROGRAM

 

Day 01: Saigon – Cai Be (Lunch, Diner)

Pick up at your hotel and travel to Cai Be, around two hours driving. We leave behind the noisy and chaotic world of motorbikes and skyscrapers in Saigon and head to a land where the water is immense, the sky is clear, the air is fresh and the people are warm hearted. Welcome you to Mekong Delta, Vietnam’s rice basket, the “Land of Nine Dragons”.

 

Arriving at Cai Be town, we sail leisurely through the Cai Be Floating Market to admire interesting local way of life. On the brown water flow, hundreds of sampans loaded with fresh produce are arranged by groups here and there, crossed by small service boats of café or soups. For photographing, we get closer to the stern used as their home, we could be startled by a sudden dog bark but the owner, a vermicelli soup seller would greet us with a generous smile. All seasonal produce from the Mekong Delta such as rice, vegetables, fruit, fish, and poultry are gathered here before being distributed to local markets.

 

After visiting the floating market, we land on a luxuriant garden that is tastefully designed as an accommodation complex called ”MEKONG LODGE”, a pure eco-resort with 30 elegant traditional style cottages built in beautiful harmony with surrounding landscapes.

 

 

 

Mekong Lodge is perfect for your retreat, a complete escape from city bustle. There are many interesting activities to help you truly integrated into local life: biking around the lush rice fields, go fishing with locals, helping farmers growing vegetables or try your hands on cooking some favorite local delicacies.
