Mekong Delta 1 day with the Chocolate drop (Cai Be-Vinh Long)

‘You can’t be unhappy in the middle of a big, beautiful river’ – Jim Harrison

• Starting time: 7:30 AM

At 7:30, our tour guide will pick you up for Cai Be in Tien Giang province. Several beautiful villages and green rice fields are on both sides of the vehicle’s windows during a 2,5-hour van drive.

Arriving in Tien Giang province, we shall pass the Kimmy Chocolate Manufacture. They manufacture handcrafted chocolate here. Cocoa trees are carefully planted and taken care of by local farmers of Chợ Gạo Cooperative in Mekong Delta following Japanese UTZ standards. Upon arriving in Cai Be, we will board on boat to eye-witness some of the Mekong Delta’s most breathtaking scenery: Mekong life on the boat. You will learn about how the Delta is the agricultural heart of southern Vietnam; how the Delta is also one of the most important fishing regions in all of Vietnam, and more importantly, you will know how life on the boat is.

Next, you will land on the local village to see how local people make some traditional products like Pop rice cake, rice wine, rice paper, and sticky, toffee-like coconut candy. Heading back to the water once more to cross a large river to a beautiful island and then we will take a skinny sampan boat through fruit orchards and mangroves, coconut groves. This is the moment that you can marvel at the beauty of this part of Vietnam. At the simpleness. And at the silence. You will then be led to a local orchard garden where you could enjoy some tropical season fruits, listening to traditional folk songs performed by local artists. Crossing over a Monkey Bridge, you will then visit a bee farm and have a taste of honey tea, honey wine. It’s just how things are here, in a place where tourism is swiftly becoming an important industry of its own.

Lunch is served at a local leaf-roof restaurant nearby where they will bring you out delicious fresh spring rolls, whole grilled fish, curries, rice, fresh fruit, and more. You will then take a rest or take KAYAK for a while or ride a Bike Cycle around the village. After a half-hour rest, you are to walk around the village, traveling on the river back the ferry, transit to the bus back home, arriving in Saigon at around 18:00. Tour ends with sweet memories.

We took this tour with Will and it was great. We stopped at the chocolate factory, visited a honey farm, tried fresh fruit, and had a wonderful lunch by river. We got to take our time at each stop and it felt very well organized and ran smoothly. Thanks for a great day!
