Southern Vietnam Discovery - 7 days

With its eternal summer temperature, Southern Vietnam it's an ideal region for wildlife excursions and trekkings through evergreen tropical forests. We will first take you to Cu Chi, an area located 2 hours aways from Saigon, in the countryside and where the tunnels are located. Explore Cat Tien National Park and visit the cocodrile lake where they live in their natural environment. Explore Vietnam's most authentic side by visiting the floating markets and taking a small boat trip through Tra Su Cajuput forest, renowned for it's untouched natural beauty and its flora and fauna sanctuary.

Day 1:    Cu Chi Tunnels (Join-in)
 
 

At 8:30 you will be picked up at your hotel. A morning drive will take you to visit the famous Cu Chi tunnels. The tunnels are 75 km northwest of Ho Chi Minh City, in an area that played an important role during Vietnam's wars for independence and reunification. More than 200 km of tunnels were built here by the Vietnamese guerrillas and are often the highlight of South Vietnam touring. This morning you will be able to explore the bedrooms, meeting rooms, air-raid shelters, smokeless kitchens, and experience life underground in this extraordinary tunnel complex. 

After visiting the tunnels you will be taken back to Ho Chi Minh City and enjoy free time at leisure.

 

Day 2:    Ho Chi Minh City-Cat Tien National Park
 
 

This morning after breakfast, you will meet your driver and guide at the hotel and they will take you to Cat Tien National Park, located 150km north from Ho Chi Minh City. Cat Tien National Park has an area of about 720 km² and protects one of the largest areas of lowland tropical rainforests in Vietnam. The Park is home to a large number of birds, plants, insects and mammals, including: a number of primate species such as the endemic golden-cheeked gibbon, two species of bears and an elephant.

In the afternoon, you will join in a jungle trek to visit the Park Headquarters. After dinner take a night drive into the park using powerful lights to view nocturnal wildlife.

Day 3:    Cat Tien National Park
 
 

Early this morning, you will trek towards the Crocodile Lake.  This lake is home to around 100 crocodiles, but in order to see them in their natural environment we have to go either very early in the morning or late at night. 

This morning, on arrival to the Lake, remain patient and calm and you will probably see the crocodiles relaxing on the bank of the lake, among a great variety of bird life and mammals. 

The crocodiles are endangered species and this is one of the last places in the world where you can see them in their wild natural environment.

After visiting the crocodile lake, you will return to the Headquarters. The rest of the day will be free at leisure.

Day 4:    Cat Tien National Park-Ho Chi Minh City
 
 

This morning after breakfast, take a boat to visit Ta Lai  - a village on the southern boarder of Nam Cat Tien which houses three ethnic minority groups that previously inhabited the Park zone. After visiting the village, we will return to Ho Chi Minh City.

Day 5:    Ho Chi Minh City - My Tho - Can Tho (Join-in)
 
 

This morning, after an early breakfast, meet your guide and driver and depart from Ho Chi Minh City to My Tho. During the car trip we will pass along green rice fields that bordered the National Highway.

On arrival to My Tho, we will first visit the Ving Trang Pagoda, one of the most known Buddhist temples of the region and owner of a harmonious combination of Asian and European architectures created in the early 19th century.

After our visit to Vinh Trang Pagoda, we will take a leisurely boat ride along the river passing through stils houses, fruit plantation and a fishing village.

At noon, we will head towards Tortoise Island where we will have lunch in an orchard garden.

Continue cruising to An Khanh (Ben Tre) on a hand-rowing sampan passing through water coconut trees along the canal. We will enjoy a short cycling and we will also taste seasonal fruit & honey tea while listening to southern Viet

Our day will finish with the visit to a family house where we will taste coconut candy and get a deep insight of local life and farming. Then, we will continue driving to Can Tho.

 

Day 6:    Can Tho - Chau Doc (Join-in)
 
 

After an early breakfast we will board our local boats to visit the Cai Rang Floating Market, the most famous floating market of the Mekong Delta. Enjoy the beautiful scenery and the bustling activity of the market. We will further venture through small canals visiting a rice husking mill and a shop where rice noodles are being produced. 

Then, we will start heading to Chau Doc, where we will visit Tra Su Cajuput forest. On the way, we will visit Same Mountain and Pagoda, if time and weather permits. When the tour finishes, we will get back into town where you will check-in at the hotel and enjoy the rest of the evening on your own.

Day 7:    Chau Doc - Ho Chi Minh City
 
 

After breakfast, take a nice boat trip through the floating village to visit a fish farm to see how the Mekong Delta people raise fish in their floating houses.

Hi, Welcome to Vietnam. My name is Thanh and I am your local travel expert.
Traveling has always been a part of my life. 
Personally I love being in Saigon, not only because I’m a Saigonese but also Saigon has a dynamic lifestyle and always gives a warm welcome. Moreover, I think Vietnamese food is the most important thing to keep everyone loving Vietnam as I do. You will be surprised by the way we cook and the taste.
I would love to welcome you to Vietnam and you will have your own incredible experience....
