In the morning you will drive to My Tho where you will board a boat for a cruise down the Mekong River, passing floating markets, local villages and the four islands known as Dragon, Unicorn, Phoenix and Turtle.

Continue to Can Tho where you will spend the night.

Before cruising back to land enjoy tasting tropical fruits at the Ba Cong Garden House. After enjoying lunch at a local restaurant you will be transferred to the airport in Can Tho for your flight to Hanoi where you will then have the night to settle in.

Take a tour of Vung Vieng fishing village by rowing boat, a settlement completely floating on water and dating back hundreds of years. Anchoring at Ho Dong Tien, a captivating Vietnamese cooking demonstration will take place on the sun deck, followed by a sumptuous seafood dinner on board before you retire to your cabin for the evening.

Start your day with some calming Tai Chi before your boat then takes you to discover the prehistoric Sung Sot ‘Surprise Cave’, filled with otherworldly rock formations illuminated by coloured lights to create a dramatic effect; later continue through the Bay’s labyrinth of islands on your way back to the mainland.
