Can Gio Biosphere Reserve Tour by Luxury Speedboat

Select Date and Travellers

US$109.00
Date
2 travellers
Overview
Take a scenic journey by luxury speedboat to the mangrove forests of the UNESCO-listed Can Gio Biosphere Reserve. This full-day eco-adventure takes you from Ho Chi Minh City past canals of the Mekong Delta, stopping at a lively riverside market. You’ll explore Giant Bat Lagoon by rowboat, visit a crocodile reserve, trek through mangrove jungle, observe gibbons and monkeys, and enjoy bird watching with a knowledgeable guide. A chef serves a traditional Vietnamese lunch. Numbers are limited to 14 people, ensuring an informative experience with a small group.
Highlights
  • Visit the Mekong Can Gio Biosphere Reserve by speedboat from Ho Chi Minh
  • Scenic return deluxe speedboat ride to avoid transport hassles
  • See monkeys, birds, and crocs; ride a rowboat, walk jungle trails, and more
  • Limit of 14 for small-group touring, with two meals and transfers included
What to Expect
Depart your Ho Chi Minh hotel and enjoy a deluxe speedboat ride along the Mekong Delta’s forest-framed tributaries to Can Gio. Aim to bring binoculars with you. As you cruise, savor onboard refreshments, stop to visit Can Giuoc market, and gaze at the passing rice fields, fruit orchards, and mangroves. On arrival, delve into the reserve to discover and learn about its ecosystem and animal, bird, and plant life. Delve into rustic fishing hamlets, ride a rowboat across the Giant Bat Lagoon, and—after a short hike—enjoy a riverside lunch of classic Vietnamese cuisine. Then, head for the salt-marsh forest reserve of Vam Sat Park. Here, watch for monkeys and birds, go crab fishing, and visit a crocodile reserve—perhaps feeding them using fishing rods—or opt for a guided mangrove walk. After your return boat trip to Ho Chi Minh, your tour ends at your hotel.

Guides and service were very good. The attractions are fine to get an overall idea of the Mekong Delta, so it's a good trip if you're short of time, but it's a bit superficial and contrived. Probably good for kids, though - there weren't any on my trip but I can imagine they
