Day 1: Saigon - Cai Be - Mang Thit - Tra On (L/D)

We’ll pick you up at 8:00 at your hotel in Ho Chi Minh City and take the private transfer to Cai Be. Board the Mekong Eyes at 12.30. Enjoy a welcome drink and get comfortable in your cabin with a great view through the panoramic windows. As lunch is served the Mekong Eyes starts cruising towards Cho Lach on the Tien Giang river. Watch the flow of daily life on the Mekong, the sand and rice barges, the locals building boats on the wooden yards and drying tropical fruits.

The boat heads to Cai Nhum, a little town on the banks of the river Mang Thit. Disembark for a pleasant walk through the village life and the surrounding fruit orchards and rice fields.

Back on board, enjoy a drink at the bar or take a rest on the deck as the sun sets over the vast water landscape of the Delta. We continue to Tra On where the boat will anchor for the night. The day ends with a delicious on-board dinner.


Day 2: Cho Lach - Cai Rang Floating Market - Can Tho - Chau Doc (B)
