Itinerary

ITINERARY IN DETAILS:

 

DAY 1: HO CHI MINH CITY TO CHAU DOC (L,D)
This morning you will be met at 08.00am at your hotel by your Travel Indochina guide and driver for the journey into the Mekong Delta - the most fertile region of Vietnam. Your first destination is Chau Doc, close to the Cambodian border and approximately 6 hours drive from Saigon. En route, pass fields of rice and fruit orchards and get acquainted with the locals who have a reputation for hospitality. Upon arrival you have the opportunity to climb Sam Mountain, a place of worship for the ethnic-Chinese. From the top enjoy a cool drink and spectacular views of neighbouring Cambodia before checking in to your hotel. 
Accommodation:  Chau Pho Hotel

 

DAY 2: CHAU DOC TO VINH LONG (B,L,D)
This morning visit a fascinating floating fishing village, followed by a village inhabited by Cham people, Vietnam's largest minority group who now follow Islam and practice weaving. Then drive through the delta to Vinh Long, passing farmers tending their fields and drying their produce on the sides of the road. On arrival in Vinh Long take a boat to visit a small village situated on the banks of the Mekong River where you will be welcomed by a local family and learn about the ways of life of the people living in the Delta Region. This evening enjoy a sunset over this amazing river system before enjoying a family cooked meal and a night's sleep in the house of the host family. 
Accommodation:  Vinh Long Homestay

 

DAY 3: VINH LONG TO SAIGON (B,L)
This morning travel by boat through the intricate waterways and canals around Vinh Long.
