A typical river tour starts at Long Xuyen floating market, which is bustling with people and boats very early from the breaking dawn. Each of the boat is hung with ‘cay beo’ - a long pole which is attached with a bunch of fruits or flowers atop so that customers can see which goods are sold and are on sale on the boat from distance. The goods vary from things like watermelon, banana, fresh coconut, and pumpkin.

Another amazing experience for passengers travelling by boat is enjoy breakfast at “mobile restaurants” at the market. On offer on the boats include authentic local dishes such as ‘hu tiu’ (noodles with pig's bones), ‘banh canh’ (thick rice noodle), ‘bun rieu’ (crab noodle soup) and ‘bun ca’ (fish noodle soup). Coffee and other morning beverages are also available for tourists at affordable price.

The last stop of the day tour is Cu Lao Gieng (Gieng islet), which covers three communes of Tan My, My Hiep and Binh Phuoc Xuan.

Locals on the islets have taken advantage of their orchards to develop ecotourism activities. Prominent among them is the Ut Hum’s ecological garden in Tan Phuoc hamlet, Tan My commune. The 6,000 s.q.m garden is home to various fruit trees, such as cherry, guava, jackfruit, mango and coconut.
