Itinerary of the Cai Rang floating market tour and cooking class
At 5:30 A.M., our guide will pick you up at the meeting point for the journey. Let’s start with the Cai Rang floating market tour and cooking class.
It takes approximately 30 minutes to get to the floating market from the city center pier. The boat will cruise along the Can Tho River, a small branch of the Hau River. On the way, you can witness the differences between two sides of the same river. Sometimes big boats loaded with goods or sand pass by slowly; other times, tiny fishing boats lazily float in wait.
Cai Rang floating market welcomes you with some of the Mekong bars hooking onto your boat to sell coffee and fresh coconut,… The bustling sound from the boat engine and people haggling let you know the market is in full active mode.
You will join the local’s daily activities by having breakfast on the boat. The meal options vary from rice noodle soup to Vietnamese stuffed bread (banh mi). The feeling of eating on the water is totally worth a try because how often do we get to experience such a way of savoring food?
After delving back into the market, you can hop on a pineapple boat to try it fresh. The sweet juice from the fruit will never disappoint you.
Relax on the boat getting through a green canal and take photogenic pictures in the canal.
Stop at a local family business (rice noodle workshop) to see how to make rice noodles in a traditional way, step by step. Have fun when you try making noodles with your own style!
Keep going to the unique cacao farm in Can Tho. First, you walk around to see different kinds of colorful cacao fruits. Then, you learn how to make chocolate step by step, from fresh fruit to yummy dark chocolate. Sit back, relax, and enjoy a chocolate drink made with dark chocolate by Mr. Ca Cao, the owner of the farm.
Then we will cruise back to the city center with lots of photos and lively memories.
At noon, keep going to a typical local family for cooking and lunch. Moreover, experience the bustling daily life of the locals in another aspect.
With the instruction of a local chef, you will cook authentic Vietnamese dishes by yourself and then savor them with a nice view of the fruit gardens.
