What you can expect

Apart from the benefit of an affordable price, this short itinerary offers ample time to take in the Mekong Delta's scenery and enjoy the river's way of life in Cai Be and Can Tho. Most travel plans to the delta will include these two destinations. You will explore the unique Cai Rang floating market. On several shore excursions, you will also experience the production of local handicrafts, busy brick kilns, luxuriant orchards, and tranquil villages.
