This 2-day trip offers a glimpse into the agrarian life of the vibrant
southern Delta region as we wind our way through the tributaries of the
Mekong Delta. From our boats, we are able to closely observe the daily
rituals of river life and participate in the bustling commercial
activities as we buy our fruits from the floating market. Along the way,
we will visit an orchard farm, handicraft village, and a land market
with an abundance of colorful fresh fruits and vegetables.
