Cai Be Floating Market
Enjoy a boat ride along the Mekong River to visit the famous Cai Be Floating Market. This market is not your tourist trap like the floating markets of Thailand. This is a genuine working market with traders from the local area buying and selling their products.
Stop by the local family businesses and taste local specialities such as coconut candy.
Take a bicycle ride through the local villages and explore deep in to the countryside, stop and chat to local people while having a refreshing drink & meal at a local restaurant.
Top this trip off with a kayak along the Mekongs canal system, checking out the local peoples homes and daily lives.

Simon and Ngat were recommended to us by a friend who had used their services before and really rated them. I got intouch and within a day Simon had planned us a full itinerary for our full trip including every single thing we had requested. The tour started when we landed in Hanoi and took us all down the east coast to Ho Chi Minh…

I already contacted the Travel Agency via Email before I came to Vietnam. Simon made a suitable,perfect plan for the tight time I had in Vietnam. I booked Halong Bay, Mai Chau and the Food Tour with them. Such a lovely couple 🙂 Can highly recommend them :)Cheers from Germany
“When I chose To entrust to this agency for my trip in Vietnam, I did definitly the best choice I could do!!!!
Simon And Ngat are wonderful, they have supported me in every request and the itinerary that they suggested was great, I visited lots of beatiful places and met lots of amazing people.”
“My husband and I have been to Asia many times and we usually book everything on our own which means many hours on the net organising…. this time we decided to try something different… We contacted Simons and ended up booking our whole trip with him.”
“I had a trip to hanoi in group of 32 persons, lucky me to find Simon and Ngat to arrange everything for the trip. They even came and met us at the airport.
Simon is a very friendly and responsible man. He always makes sure everyone enjoy the trip and get satisfied.”
“Simon and Ngat planned a 14 day trip to Vietnam and Cambodia.
As we arrived we were met by a personal driver to take us to the hotel. Once settled in the hotel, Simon and Ngat met us for a street food tour that was amazing.
The day after was off for a 3 day cruise in Halong bay.”
