Day 1:   Cai Be – Sa Dec
Step back in time as you board your sampan for a journey along the winding waterways of the Mekong Delta. Start your journey at the Cai Be floating market, filled with barges teeming with fruit and vegetables.  Then go ashore to visit an ancient house dating back to 1890, to meet the owner and hear stories of the past.  Back on the water, see the home-based factories that dot the riverbanks as you cruise to a stunning Indochinese villa for lunch. Pass by picture-postcard scenery as you cruise towards Sa Dec, the ‘little Venice’ of the Mekong Delta.  Experience the romance as you go back in time to visit the house belonging to the ‘lover’ of the famous French author, Marguerite Duras. 

Day 2: Sa Dec – Cho Moi
Wake to the sound of the river and after breakfast take a stroll and explore this quaint town with its heritage French architecture and Chinese temples. Then head back to your sampan and cruise towards Cho Moi.  Along the way stop off at Tiger Island and visit the Ton Duc Thang Museum, dedicated to the second president of Vietnam, where photos depict his role in the military and his internment on Con Son Island. Explore the riverside villages by bicycle and tonight enjoy dinner in one of the last remaining ancient houses.

Day 3: Cho Moi – Chau Doc
Cruise to the sleepy riverside town of Chau Doc arriving late in the morning. Say goodbye to your boat crew and hello to Chau Doc.
