Weave through tightly-packed groups of colorful boats loaded down with everything from fresh produce and aromatic spices to housewares and jewelry. Uncover the vocal vendors and bustling activity at Cai Be Floating Market on this private excursion with convenient transportation from Ho Chi Minh City.
Get picked up from your hotel and head to the waters of the Mekong River, where you climb aboard a typical river boat and begin the scenic cruise to Cai Be Floating Market. When you arrive, spend some time snapping photos of petite fishing boats serving up freshly caught shrimp and spacious sampans loaded down with pots, pans, and kitchen utensils.
Munch on pieces of delicious exotic fruit while your ride, listening to commentary from your guide about how this floating wonder got started. Stop for a soothing cup of honey tea and recharge with a delicious lunch of Vietnamese specialties, served in the orchards of An Binh Island. Visit artisans to see how they create savory fish sauce, try a glass of homemade rice wine, and then catch a few folk tunes performed live by local musicians.
Watch fishermen casting their lines for hungry catfish, and then wind your tour to a close as your boat returns to shore and you catch a lift in your private vehicle, bound for your Ho Chi Minh City hotel.
