    After a day of exploration and relaxation, return to your hotel for the night. 

    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:

     As the sightseeing tour concludes, you will be dropped off at your hotel, giving you the freedom to explore the city at night.

    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!

    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.

    The end of the trip was in

    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.

    November 27, 2023 - I was apprehensive about this first solo trip and decided to enlist the help of Vietnam Discovery agency. Linh, my contact there, immediately proved to be extremely available, attentive, and reassuring. We discussed my desires and expectations, and she put together a magnificent 15-day trip for me, from which I have incredible memories.

    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.
