Enjoy nature to the fullest!


Can Gio Biosphere Reserve is a wetland and mangrove forest, approximately 2 hours away from Ho Chi Minh City by car. It is a UNESCO listed site and a reserve for much of the wildlife in Vietnam.

This is a great opportunity to connect with nature. Alive with monkeys, crocodiles, birds, and other wildlife, the wetland and mangrove forest will captivate you with its fresh air and amazing sights! We will take a boat ride along the river. What a great way to glimpse the local life along the river at a nearby fishing hamlet and see why the fertile Mekong Delta region has enchanted travelers with its captivating colors, sound, and aromas for centuries. The biggest highlight of the tour is to enjoy the panoramic views of the reserve from a tower.

This tour is highly recommended for families, a great way to spend time with your children and let them appreciate the beauty of the flora and fauna of this reserve. Give yourself a day away from the city.
