Cooking some dishes with the host. We enjoy dinner and have cup of tea or rice wine when talking together. You can ask the local about the culture, people, history of this Island. They do not mind to answer some personal questions. Overnight at homestay in private room.
Day 2. Cai Be – Vinh Long – Ho Chi Minh (B, L)
