Mekong Delta – 1 Day (Cai be – floating market – Vinh Long)
First we can take a look at a one day trip to the beautiful Mekong Delta. The tour to Cai Be – Vinh Long is a great way to see the organic life of the Mekong. Cai Be is one of the biggest floating markets in the whole Delta.
Experience life on the water as you meander through a maze of boats selling local produce. Sample delicious coconuts, mangoes, pineapples and much more!
You will also visit Vihn Long and have the opportunity to explore the surrounding villages, I would suggest taking a bike and cycling, for maximum closeness to the people and village life.
