FLOATING VILLAGE BY KAYAK - ONE DAY TRIP

At Countryside Adventures  our philosophy for travel is to get off-the-beaten track and find unique experiences. We are very happy to offer the first and exclusive chance to experience authentic Vietnamese life from the safety and comfort of kayaks.

 We will take you to our favorite Floating village. According to the local village elders this floating village was founded in the late 1970’s by Cambodian refugees fleeing the Khmer Rouge. Once in the relative safety of Vietnam they did what they knew best and established a fishing village similar to their traditional villages in Cambodia. It’s a great chance to get close to floating fish farms and meet locals who make their living harvesting fish and hand weaving baskets for export. We stop at one of their homes to enjoy a cup of coffee and get to know about their river life and how they raise fresh water fish under their Floating homes.

Paddling around the village is also a great time for you to enjoy the nature, the river, and the culture of people living on the river.

If you wish to see the the real countryside....this is the way to do it ! I have no hesitation in recommending this tour. You have the opportunity to boat, kayak, visiting floating villages, waterways and communities. The kayaks and mountain bikes where of good standard and the guide was excellent being from the Mekong area himself. Approx 3 - 4 km of paddling and 15km or so of flat trails and tracks ... a fabulous experience.
