Itinerary

Our boat tours go from Can Tho to Phu Quoc via Cai Be (on odd dates, e. g. Sept 1, 3, 5, 7 etc.) or from Cai Be to Phu Quoc via Can Tho (on even dates, e. g. Sept. 2, 4, 6, 8 etc.).
On even dates we also offer a 2-day tour from Saigon to Phu Quoc.
If you are staying in Saigon, we will pick you up at your hotel in Saigon and take you to the pier.
The road trip from Saigon to Can Tho takes approx. 4 hours, to Cai Be approx. 2 hours. This is why on odd dates we have to leave Saigon earlier than on even dates.
The same tour can also be booked in the reverse direction, starting with the flight from Saigon to Phu Quoc where you can stay and enjoy the island for as long as you like, and then take the boat trip through the Mekong Delta back to Saigon.

Day 1: Panorama Cruise
In the morning we pick you up at your hotel in Saigon and take you to the pier in Can Tho. You board your wooden river cruise boat 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 boat 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 floating market. Later in the morning your can boat through the green water landscape on a little rowing sampan to see local houses, verdant orchards and ship-building yards. Alternatively you can discover the nearby town on foot or on explore the small side canals on a bicycle.

The vessel now resumes its journey as lunch is served. In the afternoon there will be another side trip to one of the exotic villages or lush plantations along the way. While mooring close to Tra On Island you can enjoy another relaxing evening and night about your river cruiser.

Day 3: Cai Rang Floating Market and Transfer to Phu Quoc
After morning tea and an early start through the glorious morning atmosphere on the river we will visit the famos floating market of Cai Rang. 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.

Directly after visiting the floating market a car takes you to the waterfront town of Rach Gia and to the pier for the ferry to the holiday paradise of Phu Quoc. Alternatively you can return to the boat for a sumptuous brunch before we bring you to Can Tho airport for your flight to Phu Quoc.

The tour ends here. We will be happy to help you book a resort on the island and organize your trip back to Saigon.
