Full description
Start your day of adventure bright and early at 7:45 AM - your comfortable, air-conditioned van will take you on a 37-mile cruise outside of Ho Chi Minh city to your first stop, Monkey United. 

Once you arrive at Monkey United, your tour guide will take you to the entrance of the preserve where your tour will start. Once inside you will have the opportunity to see and play with a multitude of Long-Tailed monkeys. Get up close and personal to these fun and delightful creatures. 

Next, you will head to the Crocodile Farm. Here you will be able to get close to these prehistoric creatures. Marvel at their strength and size and even get a chance to see them eat. As you wander through the Mangrove Forest, you can keep your eye out for all sorts of other wildlife that live in the water and along the banks of the river. Follow your trip to the Crocodile Farm with a trip on a speedboat. Hop on board and go through a pleasant cruise along the river that makes its way through the jungle. Appreciate the untouched scenery of Can Gio National Park.

Continue on your tour to a Vietnam War base, here, your expert guide will provide you with many fascinating historical insights. At midday, you will visit a popular lunch destination that is a favorite amongst the locals - Phuong Nam restaurant. Following lunch, feel free to spend some time relaxing or enjoying a swim by the pool before going to Can Gio Market. Here, you can practice your bargaining skills among the craft, food, and textile vendors.
