5 day Saigon – Nha Trang

 

 

This program will let you experience the heart and soul of Vietnam away from the main tourist trail. We will start out in Saigon’s city streets and gradually cruise through a landscape transforming from rice fields, to jungle and foot hills, to pine forests and the breathtaking beauty of rugged mountains. Along the way we will visit and interact with the local people and get an understanding of day to day life. We will stop at factories, plantations, national parks and other points of interest. Prepare for an adventure of a lifetime. This tour is very fluid and destinations or accommodations can vary due to weather, illness, or any other number of unforeseen circumstances, therefore the following is a general outline.
