Your adventure begins as our guide welcomes you at the Ho Chi Minh City airport. Formerly known as Saigon, this vibrant city offers exhilarating experiences that captivate every sense. Referred to by locals as the "sleepless city," the bustling city center comes alive during the day and transforms into a vibrant hub at night.
Enjoy your free time in Ho Chi Minh City.
The city's nightlife is a paradise for bar enthusiasts, or you can take a walk to explore colonial-era monuments, shop for souvenirs, or taste Vietnamese delectable street food.
Explore the underground Cu Chi Tunnels, a historic battlefield from the Indochina War located on the outskirts of the city. Upon arrival, descend into the subterranean world of tunnels stretching over 200 kilometers. These tunnels, with a width of 70 cm and a height of 90 cm, lead to various meeting rooms, kitchens, and even hospitals.
At noon, you'll enjoy a local restaurant lunch before returning to Ho Chi Minh City.
- Keep your energy up as you embark on a half-day city tour, visiting the city's must-see attractions.
- Your first stop is the Independence Palace, where the Vietnamese Revolutionary Army achieved victory in 1975.
- Your next destination is Saigon Notre Dame Cathedral and the Central Post Office. These landmarks are prime examples of French architecture in the city.
- Continue your tour with a visit to the War Remnants Museum, which provides insights into the First Indochina War and the Vietnam War. The museum showcases compelling visuals depicting the futility and devastating effects of the conflicts.
- As the sightseeing tour concludes, you will be dropped off at your hotel, giving you the freedom to explore the city at night.
NOTE: The Notre Dame Cathedral is currently undergoing renovations until 2027. You may be taken to visit the surrounding areas, such as the street book.
Time to unravel the wonders of the Mekong Delta, where land and water intertwine in a dance of beauty. We bid a fond farewell to Ho Chi Minh City and set our compass southwards.
The Mekong River, originating in the immense Himalayan range, traverses five upstream countries in Southeast Asia (China, Burma, Thailand, Cambodia, Laos) before finally flowing into the Pacific Ocean within Vietnamese territory. This river has sculpted a vast and fertile delta in the southern region of the country, famously known as the "Mekong Delta."
- As we arrive in Cai Be, the gateway to the Delta, our Mekong boat journey begins. Dive into the village atmosphere, surrounded by houses on stilts. Local workshops beckon, offering a behind-the-scenes look at the craft of coconut candy, pop rice, rice wine, and even snake wine. Sample these delights as you immerse yourself in the daily rhythm of Mekong life.
- Embark on a rowing sampan ride with locals, navigating the intricate canals of Tan Phong Islet.
- Post-lunch, let the Mekong River be your guide to Vinh Long, where traditional brick kilns and pottery-making unfold before your eyes.
As our boat tour concludes in Cai Be (Vinh Long), we switch gears, traveling by car to the lively city of Can Tho.
Begin your day with an early start, where you'll extend warm greetings to your fellow travelers. Afterward, embark on a journey to Can Tho, the principal city of the delta, situated on the right bank of the southern arm of the Mekong River.
Upon reaching your destination, prepare for an exceptional experience as you step aboard a boat for an exploration of the Mekong. Your adventure will lead you to the vibrant Cai Rang floating market, a bustling spectacle where a multitude of boats congregate, laden with an array of fruits, vegetables, and various other merchandise. This unique market offers a captivating insight into the distinctive "river trade" practiced by the inhabitants of the Mekong region.
Following your floating market encounter, you'll disembark and then head to the airport for your flight to Phu Quoc, the idyllic island paradise nestled in the southernmost reaches of the country, situated within the Gulf of Thailand.
Prepare for an overnight stay in the tranquil surroundings of Phu Quoc, where you can unwind and relish the serenity of this island haven.
Enjoy two leisurely days with complete freedom to explore and unwind on the captivating island of Phu Quoc, often referred to as a "paradise for relaxation and well-being" by enthusiasts of pristine sandy beaches.
You can spend your time relaxing on the serene, unspoiled beaches, nestled in the shade of towering trees along the Gulf of Thailand. Take leisurely strolls along the coastline, immersing yourself in the island's stunning natural beauty. Alternatively, embark on invigorating hikes through the untouched jungles of Phu Quoc National Park.
As the sun sets, retire to your comfortable hotel for a peaceful night's rest, rejuvenated by your idyllic days on this island paradise.
Your final day will depend on your flight schedule. You may fly to Ho Chi Minh City and then connect to your departure flight home.
End of our 1 week journey from Halong to Phu Quoc! Safe travels!

"Hello, the trip is going very well. Yesterday I grew rice. A symbol and a source of pride for me, I would even say one of the goals of this trip. Thank you"

We're on the flight from Siem Reap to Bangkok. I'm writing these lines because I'm eager to share more details about the trip, in addition to praising the services (hotels, restaurants, etc.) that I mentioned during the call in Vietnam.
Visiting the Angkor Wat temple complex is worth it. When we entered, we felt like we were becoming tiny people. It was a very surprising experience. On the second day, when we arrived at the lakeside village of Kompong Khleang, the scenery isn't beautiful, but it showcases the culture of the people, which is very interesting. The tour guide in Cambodia is very good, has a good sense of humor, and is always willing to explain everything coherently. So we didn't respond to the message immediately.
The continuity between the visit to Cambodia and the conclusion of the trip in Vietnam is certainly very reasonable. The number of days for visiting is also appropriate. In addition to following our itinerary, we also made use of our free t
Mr. Sebastian Rodriguez and his friends
January 2024 - The trip went well. We had memorable experiences in Asia with your team, the guides, and even the driver. Everything went smoothly, from the weather to the services (meals, accommodations) you arranged for us. Here are more details:
The first week in Vietnam was very good. We loved the egg coffee. Vietnamese cuisine is very diverse, and it was great because we had time to try most of the typical dishes: pho, bun cha, cao lau, and banh mi. The Old Quarter of Hanoi has an ancient beauty, but it's still a bit noisy. The cyclo experience was very reasonable and helped us not get bored while going to Hoi An, also to the Old Quarter, but to explore it by bikes. Ha Long Bay is very beautiful. The cruise was excellent.
The next part of the trip was in Cambodia, where we had truly amazing moments in front of the ruins of Angkor Wat. The tour guide in Cambodia was very detailed in everything we wanted to know. A few days in Cambodia are enough.

Mrs and Mr SCHAMP
Dec 23, 2023 - We came back enchanted from our trip to Vietnam as a couple. Vietnam is a magnificent and endearing country.
The inhabitants are very welcoming and kind. As soon as we got back, we were already looking forward to going back. This was our first trip to Asia. Thanks to Vietnam Découverte and above all to its highly competent team, and in particular Madame Thom Doan, we set off with great confidence, and we haven't regretted it. The organization is impeccable, the hotels are top-quality and the activities varied (visits, trekking, kayaking, cycling, etc.).
The program was heavy, but we were able to split the tour into 17 days instead of 15, to take advantage of each region.
What a pleasure it was to be accompanied in each region by a guide who spoke perfect French and knew the country very well. We were able to travel with complete peace of mind, letting ourselves be guided and driven without worrying about a thing.

The Patricia Ait family
November 13, 2023 - Our trip was simply extraordinary and wonderful. It was a lesson in life. It would not have been possible without Mrs. Duong Lan, our Vietnam découverte correspondent, who was always available and very attentive, and who proposed a personalized tour according to our needs, guiding us in our choices.
The hotels were chosen with great care, and we really appreciated the home-stay accommodations, which gave us the chance to share special moments with the families.
Our driver, Phong, young and careful, was wonderful and very kind. Our guide, Hiep, "a walking encyclopedia of Vietnam", knew northern Vietnam and its history inside out. He was very committed, a good listener and had great human qualities to match his skills.
