Day 1: Ho Chi Minh city / Saigon - Arrival

Arrival in Ho Chi Minh city aka Saigon

Welcome to Ho Chi Minh City (aka Saigon) - the biggest city and also the financial hub of Vietnam. Look for our guide holding a welcome board with your name outside the baggage claim, and then you will be transferred to your hotel in the city center. The rest of the day is for your own explorations

Day 2: Cu Chi Tunnel and City Tour

Saigon - Cu Chi Tunnel & 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.

Optional: Foodie tour on foot/ Foodie tour on Vespa.

Day 3: Ben Tre - Can Tho

Saigon - Ben Tre - Can Tho

After breakfast at your hotel, our driver and guide will meet you at the hotel lobby then take you on a 2-hour drive to Ben Tre Province. Along the route, we stop in Tien Giang for a short visit of the Vinh Trang Pagoda - an ancient southern architectural gem. Arrive in Hung Vuong pier in Ben Tre, we will take a boat trip on Ben Tre river – one of tributaries of Mekong river, observing lively activities along the river such as fishing and water transferring…First stop will be a local brickwork where bricks are made manually in the traditional way, then we visit one of plenty of coconut processing workshops located along the canal. Then we disembark via boat, enjoy a leisure walk or bike ride to the local family for lunch.

In the afternoon, continue walking in a village which makes sleeping mats and then take a relaxing row boat along the palm creek and boat back to Hung Vuong Pier. Our driver will be waiting there to transfer you to your hotel in Can Tho for the night stay.

Day 4: Can Tho and Cai Rang Floating Market

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.
