Away from the city, enjoy the simple local life!


Mekong Delta is truly a paradise! Located west of Ho Chi Minh City, it spans across a large area dotted with many towns and villages. The delta offers plenty of orchards, fields, plantations and swamplands. It is recognizable as Vietnam's major rice bowl and producer of many fruits and vegetables. One will be enchanted with the numerous colors from the flora and fauna of the region. Life is less stressful here. Modern development in the city has been replaced by floating markets and boats have become the main means of transportation in the delta.

We will visit the town of Cai Be, about two hours away from the city. This charming town is famous for its floating market with produce of all kinds in different times of the year. There are many small canals around Cai Be which invite us to a simple sampan ride amidst the lush greenery on both sides of the banks. Away from the city, we are entering the lives of the local people; experiencing firsthand how people earn their living. It will be an enjoyable trip!
