Detailed Itinerary
  Day 1: Saigon – My Tho – Vinh Long (L, D, G):   
Your day begins early at 7.30 collection from your hotel before heading along the road to Tien Giang. Upon arrival you will board a boat to escort you between the four mythical islets of Dragon, Unicorn and Paradise, situated on the Tien River in the Mekong Delta. The river is seen as an ideal place to check the pulse of the Mekong’s warm, earthy heartbeat, a flourishing centre of culture, commerce and pure natural beauty. As the journey from islet to islet, you will experience a range of cultural activities unique. Share lunch with the local people, sip traditional herbal tea or the infamous snake wine, listen to the traditional Vietnamese folksong and sample seasonal fruits. The boat will travel along Xep canal, where you will visit the traditional houses comprised entirely of coconut wood at Quoi An village, whose residents are also expert carvers of coconut handicrafts and spinners of coconut candy.
 
Continuing to Vinh Long, a homestay provides a unique opportunity to experience the local culture and mingle with the local people.
   Day 2: Cai Be - Vinh Long – Saigon (B, L, G):   
Enjoy a relaxing morning with home made breakfast. At 9am, you’ll board a local boat to visit the famed Cai Be floating market, the largest of its kind in the delta and home to a bustling convergence of traditional sampans from the furthest reaches of the Delta, skillfully navigating the crowds to dart from stall to stall like wooden minnows. After visiting Cai Be floating market you’ll journey from islet to islet by boat to experience a range of cultural activities unique to the area. Share lunch with the locals in a local household, sip traditional herbal tea or the infamous snake wine, listen to the traditional Vietnamese folksong and sample seasonal fruits. You will visit the traditional houses to learn the process of making rice cakes and pop rice. Visit a coconut candy workshop, where you’ll follow the whole process of its creation before getting to taste the sweet result. Return back to Saigon around 5:30pm where your tour will end.
