Day 1 – Ho Chi Minh – My Tho – Ben Tre – Can Tho (B, L) (G)

Your Vietnam tour to Mekong Delta begins early at 7.40am, when you bus picks you up and you travel to My Tho. Upon arrival, you will be transferred into a Wooden Motor Boat, which will take you to the spectacular Unicorn Island. Here, you can experience quiet local villages and rural people working the rice fields. Make sure to snap some pictures of the exotic fisherman's port with its iconic stilt houses.

After a snack of some local tropical fruits, we'll head on to Turtle Island. Here you can get into a smaller row boat to experience a more local view of the river. We'll take you to a bee farm here where you can sample some of the tasty treats and listen to local folk music. If your sweet tooth hasn't been satisfied enough, we'll head to a coconut candy store, where you can see how local people make these great handcrafted treats and items from the coconuts around. We spend the night tonight in Can Tho.

Day 2 – Can Tho – Cai Rang floating market – Chau Doc (B, L) (G)

Want to explore Mekong in depth and see a real Vietnam during your Vietnam holiday? Chau Doc will be the next stop. Depart early, ideally at around 6.00pm, to travel by boat to the fruit gardens in Can Tho and the floating market at Cai Rang.  Then drive to Sa Dec, a romantic and charming little Mekong town, for a walk through the lively and authentic local market before a visit to the house of ‘The Lover’ of the famous love story written by French novelist Marguerite Duras.  The family house of ‘The Lover’ in this apparently autobiographical novel has been lovingly and faithfully restored and you will lunch here.

After lunch, drive from Sa Dec to Chau Doc, arriving at Chau Doc at around 5.00pm. Overnight in Chau Doc.

Day 3 – Chau Doc Tour (B, L) (G)
Depart at around 8.00am for the Chau Doc River Life tour.  Cruise along the Mekong on a traditional sampan and discover the role of this immense river in local trading when you visit a floating market.

Gain an unique insight into the history and culture of the Muslim Chams with your visit to a Cham village. The Kingdom of Champa encompassed an area of modern-day Vietnam from Hue in the centre to the Mekong Delta in the south from the 7th to 18th centuries.  See traditional Cham stilt homes and a local mosque to understand more about this ages-old culture.

Continue your river cruise with visits to floating fish farms and local houses.  Experience a cruise through the Vinh Te Canal, an 87 km long canal which stretches from Chau Doc to the South China Sea at Ha Tien.  Completed in 1824, the canal was built using the labour of 80,000 Vietnamese and Cambodian workers and is a vital piece in Vietnam’s transportation network.  The canal is also geopolitically important since it shadows the border between Vietnam and Cambodia.

Lunch at a local restaurant in Chau Doc and then depart at 2.00pm for the drive to Tra Su Nature Reserve, an ecological haven for over 100 species of water bird and colonies of bats.  This protected forest nature reserve abounds with flora and fauna.  Enjoy a walk through the deep forest, cruise by small boat amongst half-submerged trees and experience the stillness and serenity of this unspoilt natural environment.  Your expert guide will help to locate and identify bird, animal and plant life and give you an insight into the ecology of this undisturbed reserve.

On the way to Tra Su Nature Reserve, you’ll visit a Khmer village to see sugar being produced by hand from palm trees.  The Khmer (Cambodian) minority in the Mekong Delta favours work with palm trees because all parts of the tree – stem, trunk, leaves and flowers – can be used in some way.

Return to Chau Doc around 5.00pm. Overnight at Chau Doc.

 

Day 4: Chau Doc – Phnom Penh (B) (G)
After breakfast, you can drive back to Ho Chi Minh City or take the boat to Phnom Penh.
