Be picked up at your hotel at 8.00 am then transferred to Cai Be by road and arrived at Cai Be jetty by 10:00 am. The crew welcomes you aboard with cold towels and a refreshing drink while the Cai Be Princess Sampan sets off for its leisurely cruise on the busy waterways of the Mekong Delta.
Proceed to Hoa Khanh, a remote unspoiled area offering scenic views. 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. In Hoa Khanh, take a bicycle for a better view of the surrounding countryside, ending up at Ba Kiet Ancient House, built in the 19th century. Alternatively, opt for a gentle stroll instead or simply relax on board. We’ll make stops along the way to explore local cottage industries including the making of coconut candy and puffed rice (the local equivalent of popcorn).
We make our way to Le Longanier Restaurant where 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. After lunch, at around 2:30 pm, take a short walk along a small canal back to Ba Bon Bridge where your personal vehicle awaits to drive you to Ho Chi Minh City.
