Depart from Ho Chi Minh city around 7:30am, replacing the urban sprawl with endless rice paddy fields on this private transfer to the Mekong Delta.

We’re headed southwest to the river town of Cai Be for 2 hours drive. Stopping en-route at a Cao Dai Temple. Cao Daism is indigenous to South Vietnam and the colorful and unusual murals inside will truly mesmerise. Then we board our boat to journey through Cai Be’s famed floating market. Here, we will experience how life functions on the delta, as we view the intricacies of commerce--how merchants purchase produce from local farmers.

We stop at a local working shop to see locals making their local specialties like coconut candy, rice paper, pop rice and sample some of them with a shot of local rice wine.
Now it’s time to try out local wooden sampans and pedal down narrow natural waterways. Get on an island to taste some tropical seasonal fruits (such as longan, pineapple, watermelon, rambutan, jackfruit etc...) and listening to “tai tu music”, the southern folk music that was recognized as Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity in 2013 by Unesco. Keep cruising along canals of Mekong river to a local house for the cooking class that you will try to make your own “banh xeo” the fried crispy pancake with shrimp, pork, mushrooms and beansprout. Enjoy your banh xeo combines with some other delicious dishes.
 
Relax on a hammock before we ride a bicycle for 30 minutes to explore the village on small country road to visit a small brick kiln where locals still use centuries old traditional methods to make bricks by hands. Keep riding to go over small bridges back to the house where our car is waiting. Drive back to Saigon around 5pm.
