On this excursion with your own guide, see a floating market, get a sense of daily life of the Mekong Delta, and taste Mekong specialties during lunch at a local home. With 2 nights at hotels included, admire a stunning temple and a tiny mosque before your trip ends in Phnom Penh.

Day 1:
Leave Ho Chi Minh City and drive to Can Tho, the center of the 11 provinces of the Mekong Delta. Stop at Cai Be in Vinh Long, board a traditional boat for a cruise on the Mekong River, and see Cai Be floating market, An Binh Islet, local homes, bonsai gardens, nurseries, and orchards. Along the way, get a glimpse of farming activities and daily life of the Mekong Delta.

Here, you may get the chance to see Cham artists weaving silk.

Next, admire a beautiful Khmer temple and floating houses that double as catfish farms, now a huge industry for the country. En route, visit the bamboo basket-making hamlet of Long Thanh before you continue to Can Tho and your hotel.
