Day 1: Ho Chi Minh – Mekong Delta
From Ho Chi Minh, you’ll hit the road to head for the town of Cai Be, arriving at noon to board your boat. A welcome drink awaits when you step onto the Bassac to be introduced to the captain and crew before the vessel departs towards Cho Lach. Sailing along the Tien Giang River towards the Cho Lach Canal, you’ll enjoy lunch on the upper deck; providing the chance to take in the views of the riverbank. After a visit to a village on the banks of the Mang Thit River, you’ll return to the Bassac for drinks before dinner is served onboard as you anchor for the night near the small market town of Tra On.
