After breakfast, we bid farewell to our local host and embark on a boat journey. As we glide past the bustling and colorful Cai Be floating market, we immerse ourselves in the vibrant atmosphere and witness the trading of farming produce on the boats. Optional stops can be made at local workshops, where we can observe the traditional processes of making rice paste, coconut candy, and popular snacks like pop-rice and pop-corn.
Next, we indulge in the serene experience of row boat riding, venturing deeper into the verdant countryside along narrow creeks. Here, we are greeted by the sight of traditional wooden houses with roofs made of palm tree leaves. We witness the daily activities of local farmers, including fishing, agriculture cultivation, and fruit picking in their gardens.
We make another stop at a tree nursery garden, where we learn about the cultivation of high-quality fruit trees. This is an opportunity to meet Mr. Tiger and his successful son, renowned farmers in Vietnam's agriculture sector. We savor the fruits from their garden and enjoy homemade rice wine while listening to traditional music. Lastly, we visit brick kilns to witness the creation of beautiful pottery from clay.
Returning to our boat, we take a short ride to Vinh Long town, where we can explore the local daily market and gain insights into the culinary culture of the residents in this small, tranquil town.
Afer lunch, we continue our journey to Can Tho - the largest city in the Mekong Delta.. Upon arrival, we check into our hotel and enjoy an overnight stay in Can Tho.
