SPLENDOR OF THE SOUTH VIET NAM

SPLENDOR OF THE SOUTH VIET NAM

7 days / 6 nights

Ho Chi Minh city - My Tho - Can Tho - Chau Doc - Ha Tien - Phu Quoc - Ho Chi Minh city

Overview:

The southern area of Vietnam normally includes the Mekong Delta, but as its culture and way of life differs radically from the rest of the country, it has a section of its own.

The rest of the South is dominated by Ho Chi Minh City, easily the largest centre of population in the country. It has a range of attractions, mostly concentrated around District One. However, there are several interesting places in other districts – Cho Lon, located in the old Saigon area and better known as Chinatown, is an obvious example. Although not far in distance, visits to other districts have to take the city traffic into account, often making journey times much longer than expected.
