Greet your guide and group of no more than 12 people at your Ho Chi Minh City hotel and then set out in an air-conditioned van for Can Gio Mangrove Biosphere Reserve. See long-tailed monkeys first and then admire crocodiles at a crocodile farm: Look out for other wildlife as you hike amid lush greenery and calm water. Then board a speedboat for an exhilarating ride through the coastal jungle and islands.

Next, visit the Vietnam War Base as your local guide explains its history. Listen to local folk music while you savor a traditional Vietnamese lunch at Phuong Nam Restaurant. Lounge by the swimming pool or enjoy optional activities before you head to Can Gio Market to practice your bargaining skills. Finally, your guide will drop you back to your hotel.
