Overview
This full-day adventure in the Mekong Delta is stacked with activities and chances to experience first-hand a different side of Cambodian life, away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Visit floating markets, family-owned farms, gardens and orchards, and sample honey and fruit produced in the Delta. Take a rowboat down some of the Delta’s hidden tributaries and cycle around the area’s quiet villages. Visit a series of local workshops and try your hand at crafts produced in that village’s unique style.

    Pick up at your hotel (07:00 - 07:30 a.m.), transfer to Cai Be, cruise along Mekong river to come An Cu rice factory, the largest rice floating market in Mekong delta. Visitors will get to meet and learn from rice workers/ dealers. Next stop is an ancient house in Dong Hoa Hiep Hamlet then the Cai Be floating market. Leaving the market, visitors will now come to a bee farm and Hai Yen flora garden. Visitors can learn about how honey and pollen and royal jelly are harvested then you can try the samples; next you might want to try lifting a fishing net and walking on a “monkey” bridge. The following stop is a fruit orchard owned by a lady named Hang. You can explore the orchard and pick some fruits down to enjoy. You will later be guided to a house where you will enjoy Mekong traditional music. Then you will hop on a rowing boat to tour through a canal and arrive at Mekong Ecolodge to participate in a cooking session then enjoy lunch. Lunch break goes on with a rest on a hammock. The experience is more special since the hammocks are locally made with banana fibers.

    After lunch, hop on a bicycle and explore a village on the island. You will pay visits to local workshops to see how people (and perhaps you) make net rice paper, banana fiber hammocks, coconut leaf house roofs, water hyacinth baskets. Specially, you will visit a house and learn about the making of a unique kind of cake called “banh la mit” aka jackfruit leaf cake. 

    At around 4:30 pm, have the last experience of the day with the local Tan Phong ferry to get back onshore. Get back to your car/ bus and get back to Saigon.
