Highlights


Overview

Leave the bustling streets of Saigon and board a boat bound for the jungles of the Can Gio Mangrove. Once you’re picked up from your hotel, you’ll enjoy a light breakfast as you sail languidly towards the Mekong Delta.

At the mouth of the Mekong Delta, you’ll stop by the local Can Giuoc Market where you’ll enjoy a riverside shopping opportunity and snag some enviable Instagram photos to share with friends. As your boat continues on, you’ll glide past verdant jungle scenery before arriving at the Giant Bat Lagoon in the Can Gio Mangrove. Here, channel your inner David Attenborough as you look for lagoon-dwelling wildlife and the sleepy bats for which this lagoon is named.

Afterwards, you’ll enjoy a traditional Vietnamese lunch of fresh spring rolls and lemongrass chicken before heading to Vam Sat Eco Park. There, you’ll visit a crocodile reserve where you can observe the crocs, they can be more fascinating than you think... in a blood-chilling reptilian predator sort of way. Make sure to keep an eye out for pesky monkeys as they are notorious pickpockets in this part of town!

After a day of Vietnamese jungles and up-close animal encounters, you’ll enjoy a blissed-out boat ride all the way back to Saigon, arriving with ample time to spare before dinner.

    Everything was so beautiful, I found myself taking pictures every few minutes. So glad I booked it, the animals were exciting and I felt happy seeing the local life along the river up close. Delicious food and our guide was polite and knowledgeable.
