An eco-adventure tour to the mangrove forests of the Can Gio UNESCO Biosphere Reserve! Your scenic speedboat journey will take you from the heart of Ho Chi Minh City to the dense riverside jungles of idyllic Can Gio, via the verdant green canals.
What to Expect
At 8:00, your guide will meet you in the lobby of your hotel and bring you by car to the boat at Ho Chi Minh's central pier, Bach Dang. You will then depart for the lush, green tributaries of the Mekong Delta. A light breakfast of pastries or sandwiches, tropical fruit and Vietnamese coffee will be served. The first stop is Can Giuoc Market, a bustling local riverside market at the gateway to the Mekong Delta.
As you proceed, the landscape will begin to change from lush riverside water palms to dusky mangrove swamps as you move from the Delta towards Can Gio Forest. The Giant Bat Lagoon is the next stop, which you can gently explore by rowboat, before trekking through the mangrove jungle. Guests will enjoy a delicious traditional Vietnamese lunch at a private riverside location, including the Mekong Delta speciality, Elephant Ear Fish.
Arriving in Vam Sat Eco Park after lunch, you will visit a crocodile reserve and see monkeys in their natural habitat, as well as enjoying some crab fishing and birdwatching for exotic local and migratory species. The tour will then depart for Ho Chi Minh City, where you will be returned to your hotel by car.
