Enjoy a leisurely breakfast on board before local boats are sent to the Toum Tiou I to pick you up for transfer to the mainland.

We depart for Vinh Trang pagoda by car, followed by a short panoramic tour of My Tho town. My Tho – which means fragrant herb in Vietnamese – draws thousands of tourists who are eager to embrace the untouched beauty of the Delta. It is a prosperous city of about 100,000 inhabitants, famous for its myriad fruit orchards, gardens and vast rice fields. The climate is warm and pleasant throughout the year. The surrounding countryside is home to one of the most luxuriant gardens of Vietnam, encircled by coconut palms and banana and mango trees.

We then return to the piers as local boats take us on a leisurely cruise to Thoi Son island. Here, we are able to quaff the rustic life of the local inhabitants, enjoy local fruits and to be one with the people.

We re-embark to Toum Tiou I before cruising to Cai Be. The vessel moors overnight.
