From Ho Chi Minh City, this full-day trip takes you into the heart of the Mekong Delta, a region blessed with a benign climate, an abundance of tropical fruits, coconuts and sugarcane and plenty of friendly, welcoming people. Cai Be offers a glimpse at a way of doing business that has remained unchanged for decades but, as regional infrastructure improves, may not exist for too much longer. This is a fantastic way of seeing how the people live on the Mekong and learn how their lives are attached to the river.

  • Use the local vehicles including bicycle, hand-rowing boat during the day tour.
