Tour Plan

Day 1: Cai Be - Can Tho ( L/D)

  • Boarding off Cai Be at noon. Welcome drink, Introduction to the ship and crew, check into the cabins.

  • Departure towards Cho Lach on the Tien Giang river.

  • Lunch while en route. Rest on the deck.

  • The Bassac slips into the Chợ Lách canal, in the middle of the hustle and bustle of the river traffic, between markets and churches, a unique opportunity for a glimpse of the very varied life on the banks as well as on the water.

  • By mid-afternoon, the Bassac casts anchor for a visit on shore: past the first tree line, quiet discovery of the peaceful life in the delta's countryside, of rice fields, fruit trees and the welcoming inhabitants, or, at your option, short cycling tour of the surrounding area.

  • Boarding back, complimentary drink as a welcome back on board. Rest on the deck enjoying the sunset. The crew will serve dinner while the Bassac is cruising Mang Thit river.

  • The Bassac sets anchor just downstream from Tra On for the night.

  • The boat departs at 6:00AM then cruises towards Can Tho. The breakfast is available at 7:00AM.
  • Arrival in Cần Thơ, transfer onto a local boat to visit the Cai Rang floating market, then a small bamboo basket workshop and return to the Ninh Kieu pier.
  • End of services by mid-morning on shore at Cần Thơ.
  • Please note you will leave the Bassac for good upon boarding the small boat for the last visit, typically about 8:00.
