In Can tho, take a boat to visit the colorful Cai Rang floating market. Here, during the early morning market hours, larger sized boats anchor and create lanes that smaller boats weave in and out of. The main items sold here are fruit and vegetables and each boat has a long upright pole at its bow from which samples of the goods for sale are hung. The waterway becomes a maze of boats packed with mango, banana, papaya, pineapple, and even floating pho vendors. Then, we have a walk across the “monkey” bridges to get closer to the local life. We also visit a rice husking mill and rice noodle makers before coming back to the hotel. At a local restaurant, we can taste the Mekong specialities before we continue exploring the most beautiful & peaceful things of the Mekong delta. Along the way, admire the scenery and daily life of the local villagers.After a traditional Mekong style lunch, we are going ahead to the Binh Thuy ancient house or Binh Thuy Orchid Garden following the French architectural style which was chosen to shoot movies like French flick L’amant directed by J.J Annaud. Then, we will drive back to Sai Gon by road. Once again travelling through Vietnam's picturesque countryside with its rice paddies and rural villages in this part of the world makes a fabulous backdrop for final photos. Return to Saigon in the late afternoon.
