Special Package The Mekong Water Way 3 Days / 2 Nights
The delta, which yields enough rice to feed the country with a sizable surplus, was formed by sediment deposited by the Mekong. The process continues today, with silt deposits extending the shoreline by as much as 80m per year. The river is so large that it has two daily tides. Lush with rice paddies and fish farms, this delta plain also nourishes the cultivation of sugarcane, fruit, coconut and shrimp. Although the area is primarily rural, it is one of the most densely populated regions in Vietnam and nearly every hectare is intensively farmed.
Day 01 : Saigon – Cai Be ( L,D )
Pick up in your hotel,then rout for CAIBE,around two hours of driving, we leave behind us a noisy and tumultuous world of motorbikes and skyscrapers of Saigon for traveling to the Land of the “Western People”, the Land of Waters and Orchards and also called the luxuriant Mekong Delta, the Land of Nine Dragons.
Arriving to Cai Be town,we sail leisurely through the Floating Market to admire all life activities of the River on the brown water flow with hundreds of sampans like floating shops arranged by groups here and there, crossed by small service boats of café or soups. Photographing sampans, close to the stern used as their home, we could be started by a sudden dog bark but the owner, a vermicelli soup seller would greet us with a generous smile. All seasonal merchandises from the Mekong Delta as rice, vegetables, fruit, fish, poultry would be gathered here before distributing to local markets.
After visit the floating market, we land on one of these gardens to be converted to an accommodation complex called ”Mekong Lodge ”resort including around 30 nice comfortable bungalows and professionally harmonized in the landscape and its surrounding.
