What you can expect

Weave through scores of boats loaded with bright piles of freshly picked produce and neatly folded stacks of new clothes. Barter with vendors for unique souvenirs and watch the interactions between locals at this fascinating floating market. With a local to lead you, explore the village of Cai Be.

Join your guide outside your hotel and take the quick ride to Cai Be for a zigzagging boat trip around the village's floating market. Look for energetic vendors selling fresh fish, see families picking up their daily groceries, and do some shopping of your own at boats filled to the brim with quality handicrafts. You can also enjoy paddling on the river on the kayak.

Take a detour to locally owned workshops where you can get up-close looks at the processes behind making sticky rice paste, sweet coconut sweets, and savoury fish sauce. Continue your foodie exploration with a tasty lunch, served up in a serene orchard setting on An Binh Island right after you participate a local cooking class, and then investigate smaller waterways with a leisurely rowing boat ride.

Catch glimpses of rural fisherman casting their nets, pop into a garden full of fruit trees to sample some of the day's harvest, and chat with locals while sipping strong cups of rice wine before you jump back in your ride and head back to your Ho Chi Minh City hotel.
