Day 1: Cai Be - Sa Dec - Can Tho

– At 8:00 a.m., you will be picked up from your hotel and driven to Cai Be.

– 10:00 a.m: Set sail from Phu An Jetty.

– From the sampan, watch life unfold onshore, with people going about their everyday lives set against picturesque scenery, while your diligent crew serves tea and seasonal fruit.

– Before arriving in Sa Dec, stop at different points along the river to see some of the region’s cottage industries, such as a brick factory where everything is made by hand, and travel through monkey bridges and tiny villages to visit a Cao Dai Temple.

– Lunch is eaten on board as the boat travels towards Can Tho across a small canal teeming with life. By local rowboat, you can explore the nearby countryside.

– Your final stop before sunset is at an ancient house (known as a “Nha Co” in Vietnamese) dating from the nineteenth century. In this authentic countryside atmosphere, you will be greeted by the owner and served a candlelit dinner.

– After dinner, return to the Song Xanh, which will resume its cruise into the Hau River. Overnight stay on track.

– When you arrive in Sa Dec, take a walk to the outdoor market. Visit one of the charming town’s landmarks, the ancient house of Huynh Thuy Le, a real-life character in Marguerite Duras’s beloved novel and film “The Lover.”
