Tour Overview

Day 1

Day 1: Ho Chi Minh City (No Meal)

Greetings in Saigon! Upon your arrival at the airport, you will receive a warm welcome and be transported to your hotel in Sai Gon. Once you've completed the check-in process, the remainder of the day is yours to relish. Sai Gon stands as a vibrant, energetic, and industrious hub—Vietnam's largest city, economic capital, and cultural trailblazer. Within this bustling metropolis, you'll discover the enduring traditions and beauty of an ancient culture. Enjoy your overnight stay in Saigon.
Day 2

Day 2: Sai Gon - My Tho - Ben Tre - Can Tho (Breakfast, Lunch)

Retrieve from your hotel and commence your journey to the Mekong Delta. Delight in the picturesque drive along the National Highway, surrounded by lush green rice fields. Upon reaching My Tho, explore the Vinh Trang Pagoda and embark on a leisurely boat excursion along the river, marveling at stilt houses, fruit plantations, and fishing villages lining the riverbanks. Progress to Tortoise Islet, where a delightful lunch awaits in the orchard garden. Following the meal, embark on a boat journey to An Khanh, a less frequented gem in Ben Tre. Relish a tranquil cruise on a hand-rowed sampan beneath the shade of water coconut trees along natural canals. Savor seasonal fruits and honey tea while being serenaded by the enchanting melodies of "Southern Vietnamese folk music" performed by locals. Explore a family-run business that captures the essence of rural life, taste delectable coconut candy, and immerse yourself in the pastoral charm of fruit plantations and villages. Continue the expedition to Can Tho, where your overnight stay awaits at the hotel (family homestay with dinner can be arranged upon request). Enjoy free time to explore the bustling Can Tho market.
Day 3

Day 3: Cai Rang floating Market - Can Tho - Sai Gon (Breakfast, Lunch)

Embark on a relaxing boat journey to explore the scenic tributaries of the Lower Mekong River (Bassac River). Continue your exploration with a visit to the Cai Rang floating market (optional visit to Phong Dien), renowned as the liveliest in the entire region. Ever wondered about the flavors of Vietnamese vermicelli soup? Now, witness the intricate process of its creation. Stroll through the village, engage with the welcoming local community, and try your hand at crossing a "Monkey bridge" constructed with a single bamboo stem. Explore the orchard garden and pause for a delightful lunch. Subsequently, return to Ho Chi Minh City for an overnight stay in Saigon.
Day 4

Day 4: Sai Gon - Cu Chi Tunnels (Breakfast, Lunch)

• Begin your day with a satisfying breakfast at the hotel. At 08:00 am, our guide will rendezvous with you at the hotel for your journey to Cu Chi. Situated 60km from Saigon, Cu Chi holds a revered status as a heroic district due to its pivotal role in the anti-American war in Vietnam. Renowned for its extensive tunnel system spanning over 220km, Cu Chi remains a significant destination for both Vietnamese and international visitors. • Traverse through the peacefully rural scenery, where rice paddies stretch out, accompanied by ducks and water buffalos leisurely swimming in the rivers along the road. It's a stark contrast to the destruction, damage, and defoliation caused by bombings and mines during Cu Chi's time as "A Free Target Zone." Witness the remnants that stand as evidence of the fierce battleground that unfolded here. • Savor a delicious lunch at a local restaurant. • Following lunch, explore the War Crime Museum, offering a Vietnamese perspective on the war through exhibits including photographs, machinery, and weapons depicting the harsh realities of the conflict. • Visit the Reunification Hall, formerly the residence of President Ngo Dinh Diem of South Vietnam until 1975. Delve into its historical significance, exploring formal meeting rooms, private bedrooms, and war situation rooms situated 10 meters beneath the earth's surface. • The day's itinerary also includes visits to notable structures such as the Notre Dame Cathedral, a neo-Romanesque cathedral built by the French in the late 1870s, featuring a large statue of the Virgin Mary and flanked by two tall spires. Explore the General Post Office, a grand building designed by Gustav Eiffel, showcasing the elegant architectural influence of the late 1800s French presence. • Conclude the day with an overnight stay in Saigon.
Day 5

Day 5: Ho Chi Minh City (Breakfast)

Indulge in a morning meal at the hotel. Enjoy leisure time on your own. Complete the check-out process at the hotel. Our guide and driver will facilitate your transfer to Tan Son Nhat Airport for your departure flight. This marks the conclusion of the Saigon Mekong Tour 5D4N (My Tho, Ben Tre, Can Tho).
