    Cai Be Floating Market
    Stop: 8 hours - Admission included
    - The guide will pick you up at 8 am at your place, about 2-hour driving from Saigon through the express highway to reach Cai Be Floating Market. - Then you can visit the typical local wet market and take a boat to a floating market – the originally spontaneous market from local people due to their real demand but not for tourism which is opened by the government. - After that, explore Tan Phong islet where is known as a green pearl land in the middle of Tien river for some traditional workshops, then learn how locals made coconut candy, crispy rice popcorn, rice paper and honey bee farm. Walk through orchard gardens to the beautiful lotus tea house for the real South West folk music. - Next, relax on a rowing boat and go through the apple mangrove canal for the typical peaceful landscape of Mekong Delta, even know more about locals’ lifestyle when joking with very friendly rowers. - You do not only have another view of cooking style in the South in particular and Vietnam in general but also learn how locals prepare traditional meal while joining a cooking class; moreover, maybe you will find out the different local taste even in Vietnam. To let you know, the Northern people prefer salty taste, while people in the Middle are more into spicy dishes, yet Southern cuisine is absolutely sweeter than other rest. - As soon as enjoying the tasty lunch which is cooked by yourselves, then it is the perfect time to chill out on comfortable hammocks under the shadow of tropical fruit trees for recharging energy back. - Finally, you will never forget the precious moment when biking through car-free village roads with tropical fruits and bonsai gardens on the both side, as well as visiting some handicraft workshops on the biking road to feel more about the real Mekong atmosphere.
