Cruise Ho Chi Minh City, Mekong delta to Phnom Penh

Duration: 4 days
Private/ tailor-made
Departure dates: please check with our travel consultant

This enchanting four day trip takes you deep into the watery world of the Mekong Delta from Can Tho to Phnom Penh via the charming border town of Chau Doc. Amazing tributaries hidden amongst vibrant tropical fruit gardens, bustling floating markets that offer a cornucopia of items, and acres of emerald rice fields are what makes the Mekong Delta so unforgettable.

Journey from Ho Chi Minh City to Cai Be and admire the floating market, rice fields and scenic waterways before heading onwards to Can Tho. Take a boat to visit the colorful Cai Rang floating market.  Here, during the early morning market hours, larger sized boats anchor and create lanes that smaller boats weave in and out of. The main items sold here are fruit and vegetables and every boat has a long upright pole at its bow from which samples of the goods for sale are hung. The waterway becomes a maze of hundreds of boats packed with mango, bananas, papaya, pineapple, and even floating pho vendors. Spend time cycling around the quiet lanes and dirt paths of Can Tho, the perfect way to explore the countryside and its offerings of rice fields and temples.

Before heading into Cambodia and its capital Phnom Penh, spend a night in the town of Chau Doc. The pace here is slower than the rest of the Mekong and the town boats a strong cultural presence. The local Khmer population rubs shoulders with local fisherman, whilst the Cham minority still weave colorful traditional textiles.
