Here an entire village – churches, houses and schools – sits merrily on stilts in water. We return to the ship and sail to Kampong Chhnang. Kampong Chhnang is renowned for its fine clay pottery. In fact, its name in Khmer means Port of Pottery. Kampong Chhnang is a tranquil province lined with sugar-palm trees and paddy fields which disappear into the horizon.

November 25 – After breakfast, local boats are sent to the ship to pick you up for a delightful cruise around Sa Dec.
After lunch, we cruise to Vinh Long- a brick and pottery factory and the Binh Hoa Phuoc Islet Nursery of Fruit Trees. We visit a typical local dwelling and a show room of traditional farming tools. Vinh Long – Vietnamese for Majestic Dragon- sits merrily in the middle of the delta, protected by the two arms of the Mekong. The soil of Vinh Long is enriched by silt deposits, making it ideal for growing mandarins and other citrus fruits.

Life here centers on water. Houses are hoisted precariously on stilts that are planted onto the banks of the river. Hawkers peddle knick knacks from boats. Hundreds of small boats travel the river daily. The unbridled warmth of the locals makes this a destination that you will always remember. We then sail to My Tho where we will overnight. (Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner)

November 26 – This morning leave the ship for a tour of My Tho, Vietnam. My Tho – which means fragrant herb in Vietnamese – draws thousands of tourists who are eager to embrace the untouched beauty of the delta. It is a prosperous city of about 100,000 inhabitants, famous for its myriad fruit orchards, gardens and vast rice fields. The climate is warm and pleasant throughout the year. The surrounding countryside is home to one of the most luxuriant gardens of Vietnam, encircled by coconut palms and banana and mango trees.
We return to the ship and then cruise towards Saigon. A memorable farewell dinner is served and we say our goodbyes before one last night on board. (Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner)
