Transfer picks up at your hotel at 9h00am and transfer to Vinh Long by road. Meet us at the pier in front of Cuu Long Hotel in Vinh Long. The crew welcomes you on board with cold towels and a refreshing drink while your Cai Be Princess sampan sets off for its leisurely cruise on the busy waterways.
Cross the Co Chien River, one of the original nine estuaries branching off from the Mekong in the Delta before entering Dong Phu Canal. Cruise past the islands of An Binh and Binh Hoa Phuoc, famous for their fruit orchards. Observe from the comfort of your sampan life as it plays out on the riverbanks - the people, the stunning landscapes - while your attentive crew serves you tea and seasonal fruit.
We continue cruising along narrow canals past hidden unspoiled landscapes and lush greenery while observing the activity along the banks. Visit an ancient house built in the 19th century. When you arrive at Cai Be, you’ll notice that boat traffic reaches its peak amidst unceasing activity on the river. Your Cai Be Princess sampan easily navigates past houses on stilts and barges laden with fruit, vegetables, consumer goods and other products. Continue towards Phu An Hamlet and make a stop at local workshops to observe the traditional process of making puffed rice and coconut candies, handicrafts that provide a living for the river people.
Your cruise ends at Le Longanier Restaurant. Lunch is served in this exquisite colonial-style villa set in a lush tropical garden by the river, surrounded by fruit trees, giving you a sense of life during Indochinese times. After lunch, at around 2:30 pm, take a short walk along a small canal back to Ba Bon Bridge where your transfer vehicle awaits to drive you to Ho Chi Minh City.

Our one-day cruise in a private sampan was wonderfully memorable. Boat is beautiful, designed with rattan throughout and outfitted with two beds and two commodious bathrooms with showers, allowing, but not requiring, sharing with friends. Staff was extremely friendly but not at all intrusive. English-speaking guide was very courteous and helpful. Boat is equipped with comfortable chairs at front of boat from which you take in sites and sounds on river. Your experience with river life is intimate, novel and enriching. My wife and I felt like river royalty. Highly recommended!!
