Trip Info

Day 1: Saigon Arrival
Welcome to Ho Chi Minh City (aka Saigon) – the biggest city and also the financial hub of Vietnam.

The rest of the day is for your own explorations.
Special note: No meal included.

Day 2: Saigon – Cu Chi Tunnels – City Tour
This morning we will travel for about 70km to the northwest of Saigon for a half-day tour of Cu Chi Tunnels – a vast underground defending system of Viet Cong during Vietnam War, which housed up to 10,000 people. The tunnels were constructed with hospitals, living rooms, kitchens, storage…and working areas also in an approximate length of 250km. The remaining tunnels, nowadays, are a must-see destination for tourists who come to Vietnam to get a view of the underground life during the war time. You can also join a shooting trial using an AK47 or MK16 with separate fees.
In the afternoon, get on a guided tour visiting some city key sites such as the War Remnants Museum, the Reunification Palace, Notre Dame Cathedral, City Post Office and Ben Thanh market. The rest of the day is at your leisure.

Day 3: Saigon – Cai Be – Vinh Long – Chau Doc
Today we leave the busy Saigon city to travel to the peaceful Mekong Delta on a 2 day trip. After a 2-hour drive, we will reach Cai Be, the heart of Mekong Delta, and then embark on a cruise trip along the Mekong River. We will start by sailing among local barges full of fruits and vegetables, stop in some local workshops to see how people make rice paper, coconut candy, pop-rice and pop-corn. As we get deeper into the countryside on smaller canals, you will see traditional houses made with wood and palm tree leaves; local people doing their daily farming activities and also listen to their stories to have a more authentic perspective of the local area. Lunch is served in one local house then you will continue the afternoon trip on a biking journey through the peaceful roads of this beautiful area.
Drive to Chau Doc and enjoy rest of the day on your own.
Special note: Breakfast and Lunch are included
Accommodation: Chau Pho Hotel (3*) / Victoria Chau Doc Hotel (4*) / Victoria Chau Doc Hotel(5*)

Day 4: Chau Doc – Cajuput Forest – Can Tho
In the morning, have breakfast at the hotel then get transferred to Tra Su Cajuput forest, which is known for not only its almost-untouched natural beauty, but also the diverse system of flora and fauna. Embark on a boat trip into the forest; you will be impressed by pictures of cajuputs, the fragrance of flowers and the music-like noise of birds, insects and animals. Then you can climb up the observation post to get a panorama view of the vast forest with birds flying around. After the tour, we will get in the car again to travel to Can Tho city for the night stay.
Special note: Breakfast and Lunch are included

Day 5: Can Tho – Cai Rang floating market – Saigon
Wake up early this morning and head to the famous Cai Rang floating market – a maze of hundreds of boats sailing around selling foods and products. This floating market is very different from the local markets you may see in other provinces of Vietnam – buyers can easily find the boat selling their desired products from a far distance as the boat owners will hang their items on long, vertical poles.
As we leave the floating market, we continue our boat ride to the local fruit orchards and enjoy fresh, delicious tropical fruits. Then we will visit local villages, passing along peaceful paths to visit traditional houses, observing the daily lives of local people and listening to them speak about their traditions. Drive back to Saigon and have lunch en route.
