Cooking Classes and Relation at the Mekong Lodge (2days/1nights)
Far from the bustling city of Ho Chi Minh is a peaceful world of water and lush vegetation. A world where people have a relaxing and happy life. After a 3 hours drive, you will arrive in the town of Cai Be, a typical small town on the Mekong Delta. From Cai Be, you will take a 30 minute boat trip to the Mekong Lodge. The Lodge provides a charming nature getaway on Tan Phong Island surrounded by the Tien River. It is very verdant and offers perfect opportunities for walking and cycling in a beautiful environment.
Once at the Lodge, you will enjoy a delicious lunch before heading out on foot or cycle to explore the local candy factory and craft centers. Later in the day, you can also enjoy a cooking class that focuses on using local produce to produce local foods.
On your second day, you can further explore the island on foot or cycle. The gardens on the island are lush and exotic sporting many tropical fruits such as mango, longan, rambutan, durian trees. Or you can simply chill out in the relaxing environment of the Lodge.
The Mekong Lodge includes 30 private pretty Bungalows and a River View Restaurant over an area of more than 12.000 m2. All rooms and bungalows have en suite bathrooms, air conditioning as well as balconies with garden views. Any trip to Sth Vietnam will be incomplete without a trip to the Mekong Delta, and no destination will provide more of what you want than the Mekong Lodge
