Arriving early in the morning at around 9:30AM, you will be visiting the first stop-over Cao Dai Temple in Cai Be which is symbolizing for the local unique religion and then Cai Be Cathedral.
After that, you will embark on a boat to visit Cai Be inland and floating market to observe the daily life of local people who live mostly based on the river sources. We can buy some fresh tropical fruits on the local seller’s boats and engage in the conversation with them.
Leaving the market, we will row on a sampan along the canals under the green canopy of water coconuts trees. This is optional depending on the tides of the Mekong river.
Back to the Cai Be wharf, the ferry takes you to Mekong Rustic homestay on Tan Phong isles surrounded by lush tropical fruit gardens. There you have short break, enjoy tea and welcome fruits prepared by the host of Mekong Rustic.
After break time, you will cycle around the peaceful Tan Phong Isles. Stop at local kindergarten if it is a school day (optional) to make friend with the kids in a village school. Stop at a local farmer’s house to savour a cup of tea and local banana candies specialties. Enjoy your self-picked tropical fruits at one of the most abundant orchards on Mekong river while listen to Don Ca Tai Tu - an Intangible Cultural Heritage recognized by UNESCO
Saying goodbye to the friendly host, we keep on cycling to the bang conical hat (nón bàng) workshop before stop at Mekong Rustic restaurant to have a Southern style Vietnamese lunch.
Leave Tan Phong Isles to get back the pier and depart to HCMC at 17:30. End of tour
