Itinerary

Day 01: Arrive and Experience Fascinating Life of Saigon (Meals: D)

Arrive in Saigon, greeted by your tour guide and transfer to the hotel. After noontime, let’s start the city tour at the central Square, surrounded by the Notre Dame Cathedral, old Post Office, and historical Reunification Palace; go on to  Ngoc Hoang Pagoda and experience daily life of Saigon people at Ben Thanh Market in the centre of district I, the most bustling one amongst the districts of Saigon. Dinner with delicious Saigon cuisine and overnight in Saigon. Arrive at“Tieng To dong” (“the sound of magic musical instruments”) Tea-House to enjoy the night life in Saigon.


Day 02: Saigon - Mekong Delta - Saigon (Meals: B/L)

As we should reach the floating market in Cai Be as early as possible today, try your best to start in Saigon at 07.00am and travel southwest for nearly 3 hours, passing the Mekong Delta, which makes Vietnam the 2nd World Rice Exporter, and reach Vinh Long province which is famous for tropical fruits in the Mekong Delta. Upon arrival at Cai Be, board our boat along the market to enjoy trading activities of the peasants of the Mekong Delta, who travel to the market in the boats full of fruits and farming products. Visit family factories and orchards and taste some juicy tropical fruits. Lunch in a charming old-styled house or in a garden house on an island between visits. Back to our car and return to Saigon later afternoon.

Overnight in Saigon.


Day 03: Saigon - Tayninh - Cuchi Tunnels - Saigon (Meals: B/L)

Our day begins with a visit to Tayninh, the centre of Caodaism, a local sect of Buddhism founded by a Vietnamese countryman in early 20th century. The road is thru the typical Southern Vietnam delta. Arriving at noontime, we will have the chance to join the daily ceremony at the temple of Cao Dai called Tayninh Holysee.  In his novel“The Quiet American,” Graham Greene described the temple as the“Walt Disney Fantasia of the East”. The eye over the main entrance and on the inside ceiling is characteristic of every Cao Dai church, and is a reminder of the Creator of the Universe. Yet, the midday mass is very solemn and respectful. Today, the Caodaism numbers over 2 million members, who are vegetarians, obey the rules of chastity, and lead very simple lives helping the sick and the infirm.  They are known for their séances and communications with the spirit world.
On the way back to Saigon is located Cu Chi Tunnels, one of the few remaining monuments to the Vietnam War. Beneath the ground lie 200 km of tunnels, dug by hand and inhabited by the forces of the Vietnamese guerillas during the conflict. At its peak, prior to the Tet Offensive in 1968, the tunnel complex was base to almost 10,000 troops. To this day, it remains one of the most impressive examples of how fierce the war used to be.  Return to Saigon late afternoon.

Overnight in Saigon.

 

Day 04: Saigon Departure (Meals: B)
