Starts with an early morning visit to Cai Rang Floating Market, the largest floating market in the Mekong Delta. Float through bustling trade scenes with vendors selling staple commodities, local products, steaming noodle soups and the freshest of fruits. As the morning bustle begins to slow, return to the shore for a transfer to the border town Chau Doc for an overnight stay.
On arrival Chau Doc in afternoon, we visit Tra Su National Bio Reservation forest - 25km from town; this is a great place to visit when you're staying in Chau Doc. Seating on a long boat with a motor which takes you through water covered in green lilies. A bit surreal as it almost likes land, then switch to a rowing boat which makes a trip through the forest with the green stuff on the water. This ecological spot is the habitat of many genera of water birds (mostly storks), colonies of bats and various rare animal and bird species.
