Day 3: Cao lanh to Can tho.
We take 2 hours to visit the Rung Tram forest in My Long village by boat and trekking. The area is one vast swamp with a beautiful thick canopy of tall trees and vines. It is one of the last natural forests left in the Mekong Delta. During the civil war, the Viet Cong had a base here called Xeo Quit, where top brass VC lived in underground bunkers. But don’t mistake this for another Cu Chi tunnel; it is very, very different. Then we ride on the village roads to cross nearly a thousand rivers, get on and off many ferries to see and experience the daily life of the locals, including their rice paddies, lotus flowers, fruit plantations, fish farms, floating villages, and stilt houses along the rivers. In the afternoon we visit a Charm village to see how locals still make their traditional clothes and keep their traditional culture alive. We will arrive in Can tho around 2:00 pm, take a walking tour to see the downtown, stop at the river side for a cold beer, and have dinner on a floating restaurant in the Hau River. We then end our trip in the Can tho city.
