JOURNEYS: Ho Chi Minh City - Cai Be - Tan Phong Islet
Meet your car and guide at 157 Pasteur, Ward 6, District 3, Ho Chi Minh City, and depart for Cai Be (Tien Giang Province).
Upon arrival, board the Cai Be Princess and cruise to Tan Phong Islet.
Explore a fruit orchard on the river islet which produces fruit year-round and meet the friendly locals known for their ready smiles. Soak in the tranquil surrounds, truly a world away from hectic, urban life.
Walk along village paths and learn how traditional net-like rice paper is made, or try your hand at weaving crafts from sedges and water hyacinth with guidance from the local artisans.
Board a small canoe and cruise along narrow waterways, past mangroves and lush orchards, for a close-up look at how life is lived on and by the water in the rustic Mekong Delta.
Next, visit the historic home of Ba Duc in the ancient village of Dong Hoa Hiep. Surrounded by 2 hectares of fruit trees and ornamental plants, the peaceful, thoughtfully-landscaped gardens are some of the most beautiful in the area, filled with trees bearing specialties of the region, including Hoa Loc mangos, green-skinned pomelos, King Mandarins, longans and sapodilla.
Return to the boat and cruise to a handicrafts village on the Phu An River, known for producing local specialties like coconut candy and rice flakes made from freshly harvested, then toasted sweet rice. Learn more about the labor-intensive process, from raw ingredients to finished products, ready to be eaten.
For lunch, cruise to Le Longanier Restaurant, inspired by a traditional urban plantation house.
Start back to Ho Chi Minh City, having enjoyed a wonderfully relaxing taste of the Mekong Delta.
