2-Day in Mekong Delta Homestay from Ho Chi Minh City
A two-day tour that gives you an authentic slice of Mekong Delta life. Learn about the lives, livelihoods and traditions of the residents of this unique water-world and get plenty of chances to interact with friendly locals as you float by boat through the ?Venice of Vietnam?.

Day 1: Ho Chi Minh City - Cai Be (L/D)
If you want to experience authentic life in the Mekong Delta, this tour is definitely for you. The program will start by visiting Cai Be Market. We will travel by boat and float among the colorful barges where the locals buy and sell their goods. After this fun and interesting morning, we will enjoy our delicious lunch at a local house.

After lunch, we will take a rowboat ride deeper into the countryside through the smaller canals to enjoy peaceful moments. You will have the opportunity to see traditional houses made from wood and palm leaves as well as the scenes of everyday life here (fishermen catching fish, farmers picking fruit). Afterwards, we will stop to visit the nursery garden of Mr. Tiger, one of the most successful men in the Vietnamese agriculture industry. It will be a perfect moment to enjoy some local fruits and tea, while listening to traditional music at the homestay.

No trip here would be complete without a bike ride through the village paths to enjoy beautiful landscapes. Returning to the homestay, you will cook some traditional dishes with the owners and enjoy dinner with a cup of tea or rice wine. Overnight stay in a private room at the homestay.

Day 2: Cai Be - Vinh Long - Ho Chi Minh City (B/L)
We will start with a delicious breakfast before taking a morning walk in the village to enjoy the fresh morning air. Later we will travel by boat to visit the brick kilns and see how the local people create beautiful clay pottery. We will continue by boat downstream to a floating village where you will have the opportunity to learn how to farm catfish on the Mekong River. Upon arrival at Vinh Long City, we will visit the local market. This colorful market is an amazing place to take pictures of the local life.
