Ho Chi Minh City, often affectionately referred to as Saigon, is a city that truly never sleeps. It offers a myriad of exceptional dining and entertainment options to suit every palate, ranging from humble street food vendors to the iconic rooftop bar at the historic Rex Hotel.

After lunch, we'll return to Ho Chi Minh City, where you can choose to visit either the War Remnants Museum or the Presidential Palace, depending on your preference.

A scenic boat ride along the Ham Luong River, a tributary of the Mekong, will surround you with a refreshing river breeze and stunning tropical islands lining its banks.

Your journey will lead you to various local workshops, offering fascinating glimpses into how age-old techniques are harnessed to craft unique products.

Our tour was very good. Our tour guide was informative and insightful. The lunch was very delicious and seeing the village on a bike gave us another view of the island. The people are very friendly. We enjoyed our trip to the Mekong and for the price were very happy.

8 wonderful days to discover Vietnam
Reviewed On: Dec 19, 2019AshleyAustralia

This was a great tour and i would absolutely recommend it. Our guide was great and had a great knowledge of the places we visited and the culture of Vietnam. Plenty activities throughout the day , just wished we had more time in places like where they made the chocolate and the coconut candy so we at least do a bit of shopping. Recommend this tour.

Great PhuQuoc Island
Reviewed On: Feb 07, 2018Peter GarbayIsrael

We have booked this tour for my honeymoon. First, we have great time in PhuQuoc. We chose The Sol Beach when staying in PhuQuoc. This resort is in an excellent position, just 10 mins from the airport and no construction (at the mo) nearby, like the Novotel, half a mile away. The beach is kept lovely and clean and sun beds were available by the pool and beach. The swimming pool is very big and if your feeling thirsty, why not pop up to the swim up bar.
When we back to Ho Chi Minh, we have had a nice trip in Mekong Delta. We drove from HCMC to Ben Tre. Visited many local villages to see brick making, coconut processing, coconut candy making, mat weaving. Kids got to have a go at all sorts of things. Rode in open motorbike-bus then walked through forest to secluded lunch of amazing elephant-ear fish. Both guide and driver were just fantastic. Would highly recommend this trip to families.

Great Private Tour!!!
Reviewed On: Jan 09, 2018Lisa BridgeNetherlands

We were picked up in a very comfortable private aircon vehicle and met our guide. We visit the local markets which I loved but aware there are live fruits, animals, ducks, chicks, fish, frogs etc which can be distressing for some. We take bicycle and loved seeing the local countryside and visiting the local houses. Next was lunch and this was amazing ! So much food and the prawns were awesome! After we have a boat trip which was a great part of the trip, on a private boat we went past the coconut factory and then transferred boats to a small one to take us through the canals. Fabulous scenery! At the end you walk through to another local house and see the giant snake and friendly dogs. A great tour with verypersonalised service. We did not see another tourist the whole day. Absolutely worth the extra money.

Fantastic Vietnam Trip
Reviewed On: Jul 27, 2017Mankour abdelouahabGermany

Asia Tour Advisor through their staff member Duong Huyen (Ms) organised a terrific 8 day trip through Vietnam. Our requests for mode of travel and stopping places were a deviation from the normal but they accomplished our wishes without any problems.Their choice of hotels, guides, drivers was perfect and their overall professionalism was flawless. The overall price we felt was very competitive also. We would highly recommend this company for travellers to Vietnam.

Really well thought out
Reviewed On: Jul 11, 2017Bob TurnerAustralia

If you’ve got a week or so to spare and find yourself in Vietnam, I can really recommend this trip. I live in Hanoi but my folks were coming over on a trip and wanted to see the South (they’ve been up north a couple of times already). I booked this tour in Hanoi and met them in Ho Chi Minh. Everything worked out fine, the people at the tour company did everything for us. It was a great week and my parents loved it. The Mekong was very interesting and Phu Quoc was excellent, first time for me also. It was good to do the tourist stuff at the start, then have time to chill out on the beach. The tour finishes in Ho Chi Minh City, and we stayed on for a few more days to chill out and spend some quality time. Highly recommended.
