Ho Chi Minh City

You will be met at Ho Chi Minh City airport and transferred to our hotel in the heart of the city. Bustling Ho Chi Minh City, aka Saigon, is the largest city of Vietnam. It's the economic capital and cultural trendsetter of the country, yet it still maintains the timeless traditions of an ancient culture. Sleek sky scrapers, gourmet restaurants and designer malls are scattered between ancient pagodas, colonial era landmarks and lively street markets. Spend the day at leisure until our welcome meeting at 5pm.

The Mekong Delta

This morning we drive to Cai Be (approx 2.5 hours) to explore the beautiful Mekong Delta. Often referred to as the ‘rice bowl’ of Vietnam, the fertile Mekong Delta is famous for its abundant harvests of tropical fruits, flowers and rice, as well as its picturesque canals. Taking a sampan from Cai Be we cruise through the maze of waterways watching the hubbub of daily life on the river. Passing colourful trading boats, house boats and children swimming we stop to visit some of the local cottage industries that produce popcorn, coco candies and paper along the way. Lunch is served in a traditional wooden home on Dong Hoa Hiep Island and later this afternoon we return to Ho Chi Minh City.

Heading to District 3 we visit the oldest cafe in town and stop for a refreshment, before taking a walk through a large street-market, easing our way through a sea of conical hats and mobile street food sellers. We stroll through the heart of city's working-class district, which has remained largely unchanged since the 1960s, then head into the Ho Thi Ky quarter with its spectacular flower market and maze of quiet narrow streets.
