Our two-day “Life on the River” cruise gives you a deeper insight into life in the Mekong Delta. Starting either from Cai Be or Can Tho, it stops for visits along the way.
At the halfway mark lies Sa Dec, a charming, quaint little city at the crossroads of several cultures - Vietnamese, Chinese, Khmer and French - which played an important part in the development of the Mekong Delta under the French colonial influence in Indochina. It is now mostly known for being the setting of “The Lover” in the eponymous novel and film by celebrated French writer Marguerite Duras.
Can Tho is the largest city in the Mekong Delta, and is mostly known for its floating market, the largest of the region. Along the river you can visit a colorful Khmer temple and nursery gardens on stilts where local farmers grow chili peppers, aubergines and varied herbs. Can Tho offers easy access to onward transportation to Ho Chi Minh City.
