Some stops on the banks will be possible to establish contacts with the local population. A visit will be done at a Cao Daist temple.

Before sunset, we will have our last stop on the banks arranged at a splendid ancient house or “Nha Co” dating from the early 19th century. After being greeted by the owners, we will cater a candlelight dinner for you, an unforgettable experience in a unique atmosphere.
