BRIEF & PRICE
Day 1: Saigon Arrival.
Welcome to Saigon (Ho Chi Minh City),Vietnam’s modern metropolis. Arrive in the late morning and enjoy an orientation tour through Saigon’s bustling streets en route to the hotel. Enjoy the rest of day at your leisure
Saigon is Vietnam at its most dizzying: a high-octane city of commerce and culture that has driven the country forward with its pulsating energy. A chaotic whirl, the city breathes life and vitality into all who settle here, and visitors cannot help but be hauled along for the ride.
From the finest of hotels to the cheapest of guesthouses, the classiest of restaurants to the tastiest of street stalls, the choicest of boutiques to the scrum of the markets, HCMC is a city of energy and discovery.
Wander through timeless alleys to incense-infused temples before negotiating chic designer malls beneath sleek 21st-century skyscrapers. The ghosts of the past live on in buildings that one generation ago witnessed a city in turmoil, but now the real beauty of the former Saigon’s urban collage is the seamless blending of these two worlds into one exciting mass.
Accommodation: Hotel in Saigon.
Day 2: Cu Chi Tunnels – Saigon City Tour.
This morning, you leave Saigon on an excursion for Cu Chi. The Cu Chi Tunnels are an underground labyrinth of passageways, used by the Viet Cong during the Vietnam War (or “American War” as it’s referred to here) as protection against American air raids. Those inclined are invited to crawl through selections of the tunnels to better understand what life was like for the Vietnamese soldiers during wartime.
Come back to Saigon center. Visit the War Remnants Museum, learn about Vietnam’s recent history at Reunification Palace, visit the nearby neo-Romanesque Notre Dame Cathedral and the City's Centre Post Office before passing by the ornate Opera Theatre and the City Hall. End up at the Ben Thanh Market, where vendors display a vast array of goods and handicrafts, appealing to every taste.
Accommodation: Hotel in Saigon.
Day 3: Saigon – Mui Ne.
After breakfast set on 5 hour transfer to Mui Ne. Located in 25 kilometers to the north east from Phan Thiet city, Mui Ne, a gracefully seductive sea cape. Strong sea breezes make Mui Ne very popular for kitesurfing and windsurfing.
Moreover, Mui Ne is a precious gift of Nature, with the most beautiful sand – banks in Vietnam. The sand gathers together making the endless accumulated hills naturally coloring in red, yellow, white. Standing on top of the hills, you can easily feel the cool winds from the sea.
On arrival, check in the hotel and spend the rest of the day at your leisure on your own.
Accommodation: Resort in Mui Ne.
Day 4: Mui Ne – Free at your leisure.
Today you have full day for beach relaxation or explore the town on your own.
Suggestion: Visit enormous red and white sand dunes. The 'red dunes' are convenient to the center, but the 'white dunes' 24km northeast are the more impressive – the near-constant oceanic winds sculpt the pale yellow sands into wonderful Saharaesque formations.
Accommodation: Resort in Mui Ne.
Day 5: Mui Ne – Saigon.
Enjoy your free morning before drive back to hotel in Saigon. On arrival, free at your leisure.
Accommodation: Hotel in Saigon.
Day 6: Saigon Departure.

We have tried to balance flexibility and convenience regarding meal options. This tour package includes daily buffet breakfast at hotels and some lunches or dinners as listed in parenthesis next to the tour itinerary on each day tour. In the major cities, where there are a wide variety of restaurants, we generally do not include meals to allow our travelers the flexibility of choosing their own food preferences. Our tour guides can recommend some options for our clients to choose from according to traveler’s interest & budget.
4. What type of food is typical of Vietnam?
Vietnamese cuisine is quite varied from the North to the Centre and to the South, having had many external influences over the years that have created an interesting mix of cooking methods and ingredients. French presence in the recent past has led to the assimilation of French cuisine influence, and is often attributed with Pho noodle soup's rise to popularity. Most meals include rice, as well as fish sauce which is a popular condiment added to almost every meal throughout the country.
5. What if I have a special request on food?
You just need to share us your request on type of foods, we will choose a right restaurant and order suitable menus for you.

For luxury travel packages, we only choose 5 star accommodations or if not – they will be the best ones in their regions. In case you prefer to stay at the TOP luxury hotels/ resorts/ cruises or higher room category, just ask our travel consultants to revise the quotation. Don't forget that you can give your favorite name of hotel brands to us, so we can get your concept.
7. Can I get early check-in or late check-out?
Yes this may be possible but is wholly at the discretion of the hotel and is often charged extra. We can, if you wish, book you additional nights at the hotel to guarantee that you check in as soon as you arrive or to enable you to keep your room until your departure time. We usually recommend this for flights through the night or at unsociable hours. Some hotels have courtesy room/luggage storage facilities and we advise you to check if this is possible at the time of your booking.
8. What are the guides like?
All of our tour guides are professional, helpful and friendly! They are fluent in English (or French, Spanish etc.).

9. What type of transportation is used?
Our Vietnam tours utilize a variety of primarily private transportation (arranged just for your groups) including new and modern vans/ cars, motor boats, etc. We use a mix of private (vans/ cars)/ public transportation (domestic flights, sharing cruises, trains) to provide travelers with the safest and most efficient transit in each area.

We only offer completely private tours, so only the people you book for will be on the tour. If you are alone, it will just be you and your guide. If you are a couple, just the two of you and your guide, and so on. We believe this is the best type of tour, so that it can be personalized to you, go at your own pace, and so that you can have the full attention of your guide for the duration of the tour.
