Experience the real daily life of the locals in this day tour to Cai Be and Tan Phong Island. Visit tranquil fruit orchards, a candy factory and participate in a Vietnamese cooking lesson!


Head to the town of Cai Be, which is located approximately 100 miles (160 km) southwest of Ho Chi Minh City. En route to Cai Be, we'll be making stops to take photos of the beautiful landscapes and typical farmers working in the rice fields.

Upon arrival, we'll board a motorboat and proceed for a visit at the Cai Be Floating Market. Here, we'll observe locals trading fruit and other wholesale goods, hung from poles aboard boats and rafts, in the bustling floating market. We'll disembark and go for a short walk to a coconut candy factory and tour the facility to learn how the sweets are produced. You'll have the opportunity to purchase some candy before meandering with your guide around the small villages of the Mekong Delta.

Next, we'll visit a fruit orchard and plantation while listening to traditional southern Vietnamese music called don ca tai tu, which combines elements from court music and folk music.

Afterward, cruise along the Mekong Delta to Tan Phong Island where we will have our half-day cooking class with your guide. You'll learn to prepare Vietnamese dishes from several regions as you discover the many cultural influences at play in Vietnamese cuisine. Try your hand at making savory specialties like fried elephant-ear fish, grilled steak cooked in a bamboo cylinder, grilled fish in banana leaf and fish braised in a clay pot.

Enjoy your delicious creations with your fellow food lovers before hopping on a bicycle to ride along the village path. Pass fruit orchards and a bonsai garden as you explore the neighborhood with your guide and mingle with the local villagers. Your day trip ends with a boat ride back to Cai Be and return transport to your Ho Chi Minh City hotel.
