    Originating in the Truong Son mountain range (a long mountain range running along the border between Laos and Vietnam), this river peacefully flows through the city of Hue.

    An important pass located between Hue and Da Nang, which serves as a significant climatic barrier between the north and the south of the country. From the top of the pass, you can admire the magnificent bays of Lang Co and Da Nang that stretch as far as the eye can see.

    You'll also get to view beautiful bays with turquoise waters in Lang Co and Da Nang, long beaches that are still relatively untouched by tourists and preserved: Thuan An and Lang Co; along with extensive lagoons housing various types of fish farms belonging to the local population.

    The Cloud Pass is the highest pass in the central region.

    You'll encounter picturesque roadside cemeteries, often referred to as 'ghost towns.' These cemeteries contain sets of tombs - resembling castles - crafted in various finely detailed Asian architectural styles. This presents an opportunity to discover the unique 'Double Burial' custom among the Vietnamese.

    Upon arrival in Hoi An in the afternoon, you will check in and spend the night at the hotel.

    After a flight to Ho Chi Minh City, the capital of the south (formerly Saigon), you'll begin your exploration of the city's center, often referred to as "colonial Saigon." Here are the details:

    Ho Chi Minh City, formerly known as Saigon, is the largest city in the country, with a population of around 10 million. It serves as a gateway to various regions, including the Mekong Delta, the coastline, and the southern highlands.

    In the afternoon, venture to the Cu Chi underground tunnels, a historical battlefield from the Indochina War situated on the city's outskirts. Upon arrival, descend into an underground world consisting of tunnels spanning a remarkable 200 kilometers in length, with narrow passages measuring just 70 cm in width and 90 cm in height. These tunnels lead to various meeting rooms, kitchens, and even hospitals.

    Cu Chi is a significant historic site, located about an hour's drive from Ho Chi Minh City. It's an iconic location that witnessed intense confrontations between communist guerrillas and American soldiers during the war years from 1954 to 1975.

    Return to the surface and head back to Ho Chi Minh City in the late afternoon.

    Spend the night at your hotel.

    Depart for the Mekong Delta, a unique region that combines both land and water, situated in the southernmost part of Vietnam.

    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."

    Upon arrival in Ben Tre, a significant town located in the heart of the northern branches of the river, embark on a boat journey along the waterways to reach Mo Cay, a less-visited rural area celebrated for its coconut trade and the production of various coconut-based products like coconuts, coconut threads, and activated coconut charcoal.

    You'll have the option of a bike ride or a ride on a Xe loi (motorized cycle) through the lush green island, densely adorned with coconut plantations. This route, away from the hustle and bustle of mass tourism, leads you along narrow paths beneath the shade of coconut trees, creating a particularly picturesque landscape. Make stops at local farms to observe the production of sweets and coconut brooms.

    Continue your adventure with a journey in a small rowing boat, meandering through canals lined with water palm trees, providing you with a glimpse into the daily life of the delta's residents. Visit Mr. Van's traditional house and savor local specialties crafted by his wife, including coconut jam, honey tea, and pollen. You'll also have the opportunity to engage with the warm-hearted local population, fostering memorable encounters.

    In the afternoon, drive to Giong Trom, passing through coconut plantations and numerous canals that connect to the mighty Mekong River.

    Settle into a charming lodge situated on the banks of the Ham Luong River, where you'll have some free time to relax in a serene environment and enjoy the possibility of watching the sunset.

    Spend the night at the lodge.

    Embark on a bike ride through the heart of coconut country, traversing small shaded paths en route to the island of Oc. This leisurely excursion will immerse you in the daily lives of local residents, providing insights into their craft activities. You'll have the opportunity to visit a small local market and a coconut shelling factory along the way.

    In the afternoon, set out on a drive to Tra Vinh, crossing the mighty Mekong's expansive arms, including the Ham Luong and Co Chien rivers. This route treats you to breathtaking vistas of the delta, featuring lush greenery and rural landscapes.

    Upon arrival in Tra Vinh, a picturesque town situated downstream of the Mekong, resembling a peninsula, you'll explore the Khmer cultural museum and the Âng Pagoda (also known as Angkor Ajaborey Pagoda). This ancient pagoda, showcasing Khmer architecture, is surrounded by centuries-old trees. Originally built in the 10th century and later restored in 1842, it stands as the oldest pagoda in Trà Vinh, boasting a unique architectural style that harmoniously blends typical Khmer decorations from Vietnam and those of Angkor in Cambodia.

    As the afternoon draws to a close, continue your journey to Can Tho, the capital of the delta, located on the right bank of the southern arm of the Mekong.

    Spend the night at your hotel.

    Rise early and embark on a boat journey along the Mekong. Your destination is the vibrant Cai Rang floating market, a captivating and colorful spectacle where a multitude of boats are laden with fruits, vegetables, and various goods for their lively commercial exchanges. This unique "river trade" offers a glimpse into the distinctive way of life of the Mekong region's inhabitants.

    After exploring the Cai Rang floating market, disembark for a visit to the An Binh land market, located just opposite Cai Rang. This visit provides an intriguing opportunity to draw comparisons between the bustling floating market and the more traditional land-based market.

    In the afternoon, return to Ho Chi Minh City.

    Spend the night at your hotel.

    Enjoy a completely free day to rest and make any final purchases or arrangements as needed.

    In the evening, you'll be transferred to the airport for your departure flight.

    This marks the end of our Vietnam 3-week tour services! We hope you've had a memorable and enriching experience exploring this beautiful country. Safe travels on your journey home!

    Dear Sir/Madam,

    On behalf of the entire family, I would like to express our gratitude for the organization of our trip to Vietnam. We were warmly welcomed everywhere we went and had three wonderful weeks.

    The hotels were excellent, especially the Kiman Hotel in Hoi An with its very friendly staff and bicycles available (very convenient for getting to the beach), the hotel in Mui Ne (a beautiful and well-maintained setting), and the bungalow in Pu Long (a beautiful pool with a splendid view of the rice fields). We also greatly enjoyed our stay with Mr. Ti, where we made wonderful connections and had a fantastic evening over a delicious meal.

    Regarding transportation, our taxis were very spacious, comfortable, and always punctual, making our journeys enjoyable and relaxing. Thanks to our drivers who adapted the program to our wishes (lunch breaks, beach stops). A tip for the case you host other Swiss travelers (who don't often have the opportunity to see the sea!): plan for a 1-

    Thanks to Découverte Vietnam agency for this wonderful trip. The agency organized an excellent 14-day tour for us, from Halong Bay to the Mekong Delta, at our own pace, as a family. Unforgettable moments (from July 21st to August 4th, 2023).

    Special thanks to Thom for perfectly organizing this tour down to the smallest details, which went smoothly. Communication through email and WhatsApp was very easy with immediate responses, creating complete trust.

    August 17, 2023 - Hello Thanh LE, our stay is coming to an end, and here we are in Mui Ne at a superb hotel for relaxation. It has been a wonderful time, a journey through time from north to south, accompanied by three guides we already miss. We had grown fond of them; they provided guidance and demonstrated remarkable human and professional qualities. Thank you for selecting them for us. They allowed us to get as close as possible to the local population and to experience moments we will never forget. They enriched us with their knowledge of Vietnamese culture, regardless of the region, and did so with humor, joy, kindness, and exceptional proficiency in French. We also want to acknowledge the drivers, especially during the nine days with Dac in the north, despite the language barrier.

    June 8, 2023 - Thank you, Chau Thom, for everything. Vietnam Discovery organized an excellent trip for us in Vietnam and Cambodia. It was a return to our roots for my sister (My-Linh) and me (Thành), as well as a discovery of our home country for my brother-in-law (Guy) and my wife (Christine).

    Everything went perfectly from the first contact with the agency, whether by email or directly through WhatsApp. Thom, our contact, took care of our adventure down to the smallest details, and everything proceeded in excellent conditions.

    May 13, 2023 - We had a wonderful journey that will leave us with marvelous memories, both my son and I (it was his 30th birthday gift!)... and this was all thanks to you for taking care of the logistics. I want to point out that the choice of hotels was perfect, as were the guides (Duc in Vietnam and Moni in Cambodia) and the drivers who went out of their way to make us happy, not to mention the tours, which were 'must-see' given the limited time we had on site!
