What to expect

Cai Be is popularly known for its floating market, the region's go-to place for fresh seasonal fruits sold by bulk. But the provincial town is more than just a stop along the Mekong Delta - it's a place filled to the brim with well-preserved Southern Vietnamese culture. Acquaint yourself with this fascinating riverine district through this tour! Make your way to Cai Be via land transfers, with a side trip to Cao Dai Temple in the main province of Tien Giang. This temple is the Cao Dai faith's Holy See, one of the most popular landmarks in Southern Vietnam. From there, arrive at Cai Be just in time for your boat ride to a small factory deep in the forest. See how fresh fruits are made into delicacies, such as coconut candies and crispy rice popcorns. Next, your English-speaking guide will take you to a vast orchard and fruit plantation. Marvel at the expanse of the property and the thousands of ripening produce. Deepen your cultural immersion with a front seat at a traditional show, led by the local villagers. Savor the folk music even after you've arrived at a local restaurant, where you'll get to cook your own lunch. After feasting on a complete meal course, cycle around the village on your own to catch glimpses of the locals' daily lives. Check out a handicraft village for souvenirs and end the tour with a ride back to Ho Chi Minh City.
