Mekong Delta and Cai Rang Floating Market Half-Day Tour
Can Tho, Vietnam
See the sights of the Mekong Delta on this private 4-hour tour from Can Tho. You’ll discover Cai Rang Floating Market, visit a noodle factory, travel on a series of small canals, and see an orchard garden.
Begin your tour with an early morning departure from Ninh Kieu Wharf to Cai Rang Floating Market by motorized boat. On the way, observe the interesting activities along the Can Tho riverbanks, and learn about fishing practices and how local people transport tourists and products via the Mekong waterways.
When you reach the floating market, see how vendors use a traditional ‘offering pole’ for exchanging consumer products, and then visit the rice noodle factory to learn about the traditional methods used to make these noodles. Continuing on, observe more of the local lifestyle by traveling along some small creeks. Take in the fresh air, and enjoy the views of the southern Vietnam countryside. Your last stop is an orchard in the area where you can sample some seasonal fruits.
Then start the journey back to where it began, ending your tour at the marina in the mid-morning.
