Depart your Ho Chi Minh hotel and enjoy a deluxe speedboat ride along the Mekong Delta’s forest-framed tributaries to Can Gio. Aim to bring binoculars with you.

As you cruise, savor onboard refreshments, stop to visit Can Giuoc market, and gaze at the passing rice fields, fruit orchards, and mangroves.
On arrival, delve into the reserve to discover and learn about its ecosystem and animal, bird, and plant life. Delve into rustic fishing hamlets, ride a rowboat across the Giant Bat Lagoon, and—after a short hike—enjoy a riverside lunch of classic Vietnamese cuisine.

Then, head for the salt-marsh forest reserve of Vam Sat Park. Here, watch for monkeys and birds, go crab fishing, and visit a crocodile reserve—perhaps feeding them using fishing rods—or opt for a guided mangrove walk.

After your return boat trip to Ho Chi Minh, your tour ends at your hotel.
