We went on the Full day trip in a group of 3 and our Tourguide (Duyen) didn't rush us like typical tourist-tours do, she gave us the Time we needed, answered about 1000 questions and was very kind and funny! The Tour was very interesting and full of fun,excitement and of course beautiful nature! I can totally recommend this Tour... More

We were able to see another side of vietnam that you won't be able to See as a regular Tourist! Dana showed and... More

These are the three things that our group actually lost to the monkeys. They attacked from behind and ambushed you on a little bridge across a creek. However, don't let that discourage you from enjoying the mangrove forest, watch the crocodiles (they were now imported from somewhere else since the last one was killed long ago). The monkey is a...

Can Gio district is very interesting because there are so many monkeys, and they are very friendly. Inside the mangrove forests is the long story of the history. Friendly locals, there is a small but very crowded market. The sea is not beautiful, but it's favorable conditions for raising the brackish water types. I toured the company's so much more... More

As far a zoos go it really is a sad place for the animals. They obviously don't spend a lot on the upkeep, or the animal welfare.

The price of the day trip was relatively high (700 000d/ pp), and there was not much to see. It's not a monkey island, but an island with some monkeys there. Monkeys were kind of repulsive and greedy for food, I was afraid when they approached us. The mangrove forest is ok, but after 5 min walk it's the same... More

The monkeys is very intelligent. They like look at packages in people bring. And if you're not carefull with them, the monkeys will rob them. Don't be scared much, try to finish the trip to discovery new places.

I visited on my off day. Can Gio is quiet but It's so good for me because I don't like crowded. The sea food is fresh but you should ask the kitchen to make sure that was fresh. Or you can go to Hang Duong market and buying sea food. The beach is not clean.. You can walk in the... More

We had a really fantastic day, starting with our hilarious guide Khan who was informative and funny (and has the best Louisiana accent in the whole of Vietnam). The market tour was great, fascinating sights and smells. The boat was comfortable and we had a super quick ride down the river, with fresh fruit and cold drinks provided the whole... More

1) Monkeys. They are everywhere. I thought that you will have to visit a tiny area to see a bunch of monkeys, but no. Once you step out of the bus, they are running chaotically from one end to the other. I saw it first hand, they will steal your glasses and hats. Do not bring a plastic bag (my... More
