Private 1-Day Boat
Cai Be Princess
Cai Be, Tan Phong, Phu An
Valid to 30/9/2023
Be picked up at your hotel at 8:00 am and transfer to Cai Be by road. Meet us at Cai Be jetty at 10:00 am. Your crew is set to welcome you aboard with cold towels and a refreshing drink while the Cai Be Princess sampan sets off for its leisurely cruise towards Tan Phong Islet.
From the boat’s unique vantage point, observe life as it is lived along the river – endless boats both big and small, people working the and brilliant landscapes in every shade of green. Once at Tan Phong Islet, take a short cycling trip through the villages and fruit gardens, looking out in particular for the red, spiky rambutan with its deliciously sweet ﬂesh, the specialty of the islet. Make stops along the way to visit local cottage indus- tries where families make everything from rice paper and rice ﬂour cakes to roof panels from water coconut fronds and homewares from water hyacinths. From the islet, travel via rowing sampan through the peaceful, narrow canals, back to the Cai Be Princess where you’ll continue on to the village of Phu An. Your cruise ends at Le Longanier Restaurant.
Lunch is served in this elegant colonial-style villa set in a lush tropical garden by the river surrounded by fruit trees, giving you a sense of how the privileged class lived in Indochina times.
After lunch at approximately 2:30 pm, take a short walk along the canal towards Ba Bon Bridge where your personal vehicle awaits to drive you back to Ho Chi Minh City.
