Day 1: Panorama Cruise
In the morning we pick you up at your hotel in Saigon and take you to Can Tho or Cai Be. You board the Mekong Eyes around noon. After a refreshing welcome drink we show you our on-board facilities and your cosy cabin. As lunch is served, the boat starts cruising. Sit back and watch the fantastic scenery and the daily life of the Mekong people.
In the afternoon you can disembark for a guided leisurely stroll through the village and the surrounding fruit orchards or rice fields. Meet the friendly locals and taste the local produce and fruits.
Get back on board and enjoy a drink at the bar or relax on deck as the sun sets over the magnificent water landscape. The boat will anchor for the night. The day ends with a delicious on-board dinner.
Day 2: Life on the water and floating markets
Wake up well rested to the sound of the River and get ready for another exciting day of sightseeing. At 6.30h the Mekong Eyes sets off for a sunrise cruise. Watch the locals go about their daily work drying exotic fruits and building ships on the wooden yards while enjoying an early breakfast.
After breakfast, we will board a sampan boat to Cai Be or Cai Rang floating market, the region’s busiest and most lively markets. Marvel at the sheer abundance of exotic fruits, vegetables and skilfully handcrafted regional products. We will pull up to the boats for talking and bargaining with the merchants. We will also visit some of the local candy and cake making factories or boat through the green water landscape to see local houses, verdant orchards and ship-building yards.
Disembark the Mekong Eyes at around 11.00 - 11.30h on the pier. You can now dive into the buzz of Can Tho and spend the night enjoying the comfort of the Victoria Hotel*.
*In case you would like to catch the early ferry to Phu Quoc the next morning, you have the option to continue to the waterfront town of Rach Gia. The hotels there are, however, not as comfortable as in Can Tho.
Day 3: Towards Phu Quoc
This day takes you to the pier in Rach Gia where you embark on the ferry for an exciting ride to Phu Quoc, your holiday paradise for a wonderfully relaxed vacation.
The tour ends here. Of course we will be happy to arrange your accommodation in Phu Quoc and transfer back to Saigon.
