At 7:30 AM, you commence from your hotel for a 2.5 hour transfer to Mekong Delta, the “rice basket” of Vietnam. At Cai Be Jetty, the Cai Be Princess’ crew welcomes you aboard with cold towels and a refreshing drink while the sampan sets off for its leisurely cruise on the busy waterways of the Mekong Delta. On the river, all sorts of boats ply the water, from small ﬁshing boats to cargo barges loaded with fruit and vegetables. Observe from the comfort of your sampan life as it plays out on the riverbanks the people, the stunning landscapes while your attentive crew serves you tea and seasonal fruit. At Tan Phong Islet, board a small row boat to better explore the canal’s hidden mangroves. Return to your sampan to visit an ancient house built in the 19th century. You will take some stops along the way to explore local cottage industries including the making of coconut candy and puffed rice (the local equivalent of popcorn). Your cruise ends at Le Longanier Restaurant. Lunch is served in this exquisite colonial-style villa set in a lush tropical garden by the river and surrounded by fruit trees, giving you a sense of privileged life during Indochinese times.
