    08h00 Our guide & driver will pick up at your hotel in Saigon & transfer to the Mekong Delta. Upon reaching the Rach Ram River, we’ll board a motorized boat to cruise along the Mekong River’s branches, passing through local villages and tiny river islands. The 2-hour cruise will lead us to Cai Be, where a stop for lunch awaits in a beautiful orchard on the island.
    At the orchard, the host will graciously serve you “longan spirit,” a local beverage he has crafted himself. Alongside, indulge in deep-fried elephant ear fish, spring rolls, and other local delicacies that are sure to make you feel content and ready for a siesta. There won’t be any biking today; instead, a sampan boat in a small canal will offer a relaxing experience under the warm sun.
    Continue cruising to Cai Be town, passing a small floating market. It’s fascinating to observe locals at work in their workshops producing items like rice paper, pop rice, coconut toffee, and more. Finally, a boat transfer will take you to your resort for an overnight stay.

    Combining biking and ferry crossings on the way to Sa Đéc, our journey begins with a 1-hour van transfer to the southwest of the delta. Once there, we’ll hop back on our bikes and explore different islands along the main Mekong River, taking the last ferry to Sa Đéc town. Embark on a bike loop around the area, visiting the renowned flower villages that are the largest in the delta.
    Sa Đéc is particularly famous for its vibrant flower culture. A key attraction is the ancient house of Huỳnh Thủy Lê, well-known for its romantic love story, depicted in the novel by Marguerite Duras, later adapted into a movie in 1986. A delightful lunch at the house awaits, providing a perfect break during our explorations.
    After lunch, you can choose to enjoy a siesta or a coffee break. We then continue our journey, riding backroads to Can Tho. The distance covered will be discussed with your guide, considering the weather conditions for a comfortable and enjoyable ride.

Our 2-week trip to Thailand was fantastic! Chiang Mai felt completely magical and Koh Samui was beautiful. We managed to have fun even on the rainy days. Our guides were perfect, very knowledgeable and a lot of fun, with great insights into the local culture. I've been recommending Absolute Asia Tours to all my friends and I can't wait to travel with you guys again! The coordination of everything was very well done.

Our recent trip to China and Mongolia was a great success. Overall we found Absolute Asia Tours services to be excellent throughout the two weeks we were in Asia. For us, Mongolia was definitely the highlight. We thoroughly enjoyed or local guides and drives and they were unfailingly knowledgeable, helpful and amusing. Their languages skills were excellent and we felt that we recieved real insight into this fascinating country. We were intinially drawn to the idea of this trip by the reports of the world class fihing and we were absolutely not disappointed. The fishing guide was first rate and we caught more fish than we could have hoped for - more than 25 each day - with the added bonus of being the only other people in sight for miles arround. AAT created a private ger camp for us on the Onon River and we enjoyed delicious food prepared by our chef in a beautiful unspoled atmosphere. They alo arranged for us to visit a nomadic family and spend time with them at home and organized a dinner with an anthropologist with expert knowledge of the region. AAT fullfilled their promise to tkae us to us to one of the world's best fishing destinations in comfort and style. We would be happy to travel with AAT again and will definitely recommend them to our friends.

Absolute Asia tours gave us a wonderful tour of Southeast Asia (working with sister-agency My Way Travel based in Vietnam). For our Siem Reap/Angkor Wat journey, our party of two had a private driver and guide named Jak, who was a cheerful and knowledgeable companion, explaining the history, culture, architecture and religious significance of the sites while keeping it always fun. We moved efficiently from site to site, and finished with a boat tour of the fishing village on stilts at Kampong Pluk on the Tonle Sap Lake. During most of our trip we stayed at top-notch locally-owned hotels, but in Siem Reap we were at the excellent local Hyatt hotel. Absolute Asia and My Way Travel our outstanding local providers, less expensive than name-brand group tours, and customized to our interests and schedule.
