A long drive from the city, around 4 hours each way. Did the 2 days 1 night tour with friends. A lot of stops related to shops, buying stuff and little boat rides. I was in HCMC for a long while and it was nice to get away

We were the first to be picked up on time but it then took a very long time to pick up everyone else. It was also a long drive to Cai Be, around 3 hours. On arrival we took a very short walk through a covered market to get to the boat, which was really colourful and interesting.

It is a lovely experience, you get to have a trip on a boat, visit a candy factory (and those candies are great!), try snake wine. A must do!
