Along the way we also visit the famous Long Tan Cross – it’s the old battlefields of the Australian Army in South Vietnam.

We continue to travel by the small roads from Tien Giang to the old land of Khmer Krom; they are ethnic Khmer who inhabit Kampuchea Krom, an area in southern Vietnam that was once part of the Khmer Empire. Among the Khmer Krom the belief is held that they are the descendants of ancient Funan, the core of Suvarnabhumi, which covered a vast extent of Southeast Asia including present day Cambodia, southern Vietnam, Thailand, Laos, Burma, Malaya, Sumatra and other parts of Indonesia. We’ll do the boat trip to explore this region, visit the 1000 years old Cambodian temple, visit the Cambodian village.

Day 7: Saigon – 180 km
We need to wake up at 6 am to do the boat trip to explore the famous floating market – Cai Rang: Farmers from the region bring their goods, fruits and vegetables mainly, to the markets and sell them to local dealers. These dealers sell the products to shops in the neighboring towns and to wholesale dealers from the big towns. In the picture you can see a local farmer with fruits for sale. All big boats have a pole. Each wholesaler hangs the goods he buys / sells on this pole. This way, people on small boats know where they have to go from a certain distance. In this case, this is a floating vegetable supermarket. On the floating markets you do not only find people buying and selling goods, you also find floating restaurants, floating bars, floating gas stations, and many other floating shops. Canals are here the easiest and fastest way of transportation.
Our tour continue to travel by the small roads and about 50 km off-road along the Mekong river to Saigon; we’ll take some boat trips to cross the Mekong river and stop to see the Cao Dai Temple, the dragon fruits farms. Tour will end in Saigon.
