The Mekong Delta is situated in South West Vietnam and is where the mighty Mekong River empties into the South China Sea by way of a network of many small tributaries. It is a land of flat flood plains and a few hills with green fields and sleepy villages. The villages are generally only reached by river or canal rather than by road. It is also known as the Rice Basket of Vietnam.

Your cruise boat, La Cochinchine is entirely made of wood. It caters for up to 20 passengers in 10 cabins each with air conditioning, private bathroom and living room.

There is a restaurant and a bar on board.

Embark in the morning in Can Tho, the largest city in the Delta with its floating markets, pagodas, temples and happy smiling people. Before sailing, explore the lively Cai Be floating market and visit the handicraft village. Set sail later for Cho Lach village where you will have a pleasant stroll or bike ride on the footpaths through the countryside dotted with tropical fruit orchards. Next cruise on to Tra On to enjoy the magnificent sunset on the river. Dinner and overnight on board.

Awake to the sounds of the floating market. After breakfast, the cruise continues back to Can Tho where a small boat will take you to the Cai Rang market where hundreds of small boats barge and jostle for space as their owners attempt to sell their goods. The cruise ends in Can Tho.

On certain days of the week, the cruise will sail to Cai Be for overnight.
