Ho Chi Minh City Arrival

When you arrive at the Tan Son Nhat International airport you'll be met at the baggage claim by our friendly guide. Just look for the sign with our Asia Tour Advisor logo and your name. We'll get you to your hotel and see that you're comfortable, plus we'll give you an introduction to the city at the same time. Then the rest of the day is yours to settle in, relax, and explore the area.

Ho Chi Minh is a city that never sleeps and offers a plethora of great restaurants and bars catering to all tastes, from street food vendors to the rooftop bar at the Rex Hotel, where international correspondents covered the Vietnam War and where the U.S. military attaché’s press briefing was held daily and dubbed the “Five O’clock Follies”. Whatever your interests, be sure to ask your guide for personal recommendations.

Ho Chi Minh City Tours – Cu Chi Tunnels

We'll pick you up in the morning and take you to the Cu Chi Tunnels, a major part of the Vietnam-American War and a fascinating day trip- explore the mysterious tunnels, find hidden doors and once-deadly traps. After lunch we'll go back to Ho Chi Minh and spend the afternoon either visiting the War Remnants Museum or the Presidential Palace, whichever you prefer. Then stroll around the city's colonial streets in the evening to the Old Saigon Post Office, Dong Khoi Street, Continental Hotel, Opera House and City Hall.

Ho Chi Minh City – Mekong Delta – Can Tho

From Ho Chi Minh we'll take a short drive through lush green rice fields into the Mekong Delta and the town of My Tho. We'll stop to visit the Vinh Trang Pagoda and take a hand-rowed sampan boat down the mighty Mekong, drifting under the shade of coconut trees through the river's natural canals. You'll get to see wooden stilt houses, aromatic fruit plantations and traditional fishing villages built along the banks. At Tortoise Islet we'll stop to have lunch in an orchard garden, then continue down the river to An Khang. If you'd like, we can take a short bicycle tour (you can apply for a private tour if time permits) and enjoy seasonal fruit, honey, and tea to the beautiful sounds of southern Vietnamese folk music performed by local musicians. In one of the small river villages you can taste delicious, hand-made coconut candies while you experience the idyllic rural lifestyle. In the evening we'll head to Can Tho and make sure you're comfortable in your hotel, then you can have some time to visit the bustling Can Tho Market.

Can Tho – Cai Rang Floating market – Ho chi Minh City

Enjoy the fresh air and country life along the banks of the Mekong again in the morning. Take breakfast at the hotel before embarking on a casual cruise down the Mekong itself all the way to Cai Rang Floating market. Cai Rang is the largest floating market anywhere in the region and you’ll find absolutely everything that Vietnam has to offer here. We’ve found that many people wish they’d taken a bigger bag once they’re done shopping! One you’ve found your way out of the hustle and bustle of the market your guide will arrange for you to return to Saigon. Here you’ll return to your hotel and enjoy a final night in Vietam’s most exciting Southern city.

Ho Chi Minh City Departure

You have free time in the morning until your private car arrives to take you to the airport for your next destination.

Goodbye, and we hope to see you again next time! Asia Tour Advisor can also arrange additional customized trips for you if the above itinerary does not match your expectations.

Really Authentic Mekong Delta Trip
Reviewed On: Feb 08, 2018Lynn HarwoodReally Authentic Mekong Delta TripIsrael

We spent in the Mekong Delta which is an interesting place. As you might expect, water is all over the area. You could see the industry and homes built on stilts right over the river. The arteries of water act as a transportation system, source of food, and a place to live. Along these arteries are villages and rice paddies where men and women in conical hats seek out livings as farmers or fishermen. We got to travel the back roads and see the real life of the mekong delta past the rice patties, the dragon fruit farms, fishing farm tours and crossing the rivers on boats and wooden bridge. The tour even includes local fruits from the local market to snack on the trip. It’s really off the beaten path for most of it since the organisers are all from the area. We are really glad we took this tour!

something I normally do, but thought it would make a change. It was really quite special. I arrived in Saigon and chose the Ho Chi Minh Essentials tour from Asia Tour Advisor. This would show me the city, plus the Mekong Delta and the Cu Chi tunnels. It really was great. The guides new their stuff and everything ran like clockwork. A really good day to fill out 5 days.
