Day 1: Saigon - The Mekong Delta

An early morning departure takes you to the bustling river market of Cai Be. The floating market dates back hundreds of years and remains an incredibly important part of life on the Mekong Delta. Several hundred boats specialising in fruit and vegetable can be seen moored by the riverbanks, displaying their wares on long poles to attract customers who float by in smaller boats. After a delicious Vietnamese lunch, visit some home factories where you can sample local sweets and see how they are made. This evening enjoy a Vietnamese cooking class, which includes a hands-on lesson. After you have completed your lesson, you can sit down and enjoy the tasty fruits of your labour! Overnight A & M Hotel
