Furthermore, we will enjoy the idyllic scenery by "Xe Loi" (also called rickshaw) or bicycle. 

At noon, we will stop at a riverside restaurant for a delicious and filling lunch. Then board a sampan for a relaxing trip along narrow canals.

Day 5 Can Tho - Cai Rang Floating Market - Ho Chi Minh City
We will leave for the famous Cai Rang floating market by motor boat early in the morning today. There are thousands of peddlers coming from nearby regions to the hustling and bustling floating market. Here you can find a wide variety of goods, from fresh fruits to rice and seafood. It shows how the hardworking Vietnamese along Mekong Delta have lived here for hundreds of years. Afterwards, we will continue the boat ride to visit reputable orchards and sample some of the fresh fruits. As our boat continues to move into the country side, we will see traditional houses made of wood and palm leaves, and also view locals going about their daily activities. We will return to Can Tho for lunch, and then drive back to Ho Chi Minh City.
