Cai Lay Authentic Mekong Eco Tour

  • Duration: 1 days -1 nights
  • Trip Code: MCT-01

Modernization and tourist booming have changed Vietnam rapidly. Most of these changes have strongly affected tothe local life and countryside both good and bad sides. Obviously, now it is a challenge to find a true non‐touristy destination in the Mekong Delta. However, the following trip may change your mind.

Morning, pick up from your hotel and enjoy a quick drive (two hours) to Cai Lay, a small but fertile town in the Mekong Delta through the new national free way. Upon arrival, drop off at the town’s local pier and start boarding our small motorized boat for a 30 min boat trip on one of the small branches of the Mekong River. Witness the lively life on the water of the locals.

Disembark at Cam Son bridge where you start a leisure cycling trip (alternative transportation is our “xeloi”, a fun local transportation) into a deep Mekong Delta exploration. The ride is about 7km on shady narrow village roads curving over tiny canals and past fruit gardens and sleepy villages. Many kids will greet you with a big smile and “xin chao” or Hello. During the village road, you will have a chance to stop and visit local factories, fish farm, rice paddies to learn briefly about the local economy, business. Arrive at a lush orchard with diverse tropical fruits. Have a friendly chat with the owner, a former veteran with interesting topics about his motherland as well as his daily life both past and present. He will be very happy to walk you around his garden. Enjoy the opportunity to taste fresh fruits picked right from the trees.

Then relax with a sampan ride to visit a local ancient house, have a brief interaction with these friendly residents in their 100 year old house before tasting their hosted lunch with traditional dishes of the Mekong land. Bid farewell to the family before going back to Saigon.
