  • Visit the UNESCO-listed Can Gio Biosphere Reserve

Full description
After pick-up from your hotel go for a 2-hour car ride to Vam Sat, Can Gio. The UNESCO-designated Can Gio Biosphere Reserve, located south of Ho Chi Minh City, is teeming with wildlife and biodiversity in lush mangrove forests. Make several scenic stops on your way to the reserve.

Then move into a landscape of mangroves. Your guide explains the features of Can Gio, one of Vietnam’s most important ecosystems, where more than 52 flora species and 200 fauna species live. Visit traditional fishing hamlets, then cruise the tranquil waters of Giant Bat Lagoon in a rowboat. Your guide leads a short trek through the mangroves to a private riverside location where you have a traditional Vietnamese lunch.

After lunch, head to Vam Sat Eco Park. There, you might spot gibbons and monkeys, try crab fishing, and go bird watching for local and migratory bird species. See a crocodile reserve (and feed them via a fishing rod if you wish) to learn about the once-plentiful crocs that were hunted to near extinction. Alternatively, take another mangrove jungle walk with your guide.
