We will have breakfast and coffee at the market, enjoy fresh pineapple on the local’s boat. This is a unique opportunity to experience everyday life on the Mekong.
Afterwards, we visit a local house to see how the locals make rice noodle “hu tieu”. On the way back we will visit Cocoa garden to see first-hand how the locals make fresh chocolate and get to taste some. Following this, we will get back onborard the boat and journey into a very beautiful canal with lots of water coconut on both sides of river. If you are intersted in rowing the boat, there will be an opportunity here to learn (depends on the tide, we can go through the canal or just a short distance).
Then we take bikes and get on the ferry to the other side of the river, riding around a beautiful village, get to know the locals' daily activities. Then we will visit a blacksmith on the way, he is the only man working in that place (he does not work everyday but we can visit his place) and keep riding on a very nice road with a lot of fruits gardens, flowers then 1 more stop at a local house to learn to make fresh rice noodle -"Banh Hoi Mat Vong" the only one place making this kind of noodle in Vietnam.
