Not many people think of beaches when they think of Vietnam. That is a huge mistake! The country is filled with desirable seaside locations. In fact, Vietnam is home to some of the region’s finest beaches. So, pack your sunblock, beachwear and even your diving equipment and head out to Vietnam on our Ho Chi Minh City & Phu Quoc Get Away tour.
Yes, your tour starts in dynamic Ho Chi Minh City (we’ll call it Saigon for simplicity’s sake). This truly is an historic city. The Reunification Hall, also known as the Presidential Palace is filled with recent history that is still fresh in the minds of many. Notre Dame Cathedral, a beautiful French-built Catholic structure in the city center, reminds everyone of the country’s colonial past. Included in the Saigon city tour is a stop at Ben Thanh, the city’s central market and certainly one of its liveliest and most colorful areas.
Not far from Vietnam’s largest city lies the Cu Chi Tunnels, a grim reminder of Vietnam’s recent warring past. The tunnels have been preserved and are now something of a war memorial park and a visit here should satisfy war history buffs.
After your Saigon orientation, it is then time for you to get acquainted with Vietnam’s favorite beach destination; Phu Quoc. What makes this place so desirable? First of all, it is an island. Secondly it is one of the continent’s least developed beach resorts. Finally, the scenery is just plain awesome. Need we say more? Well, throw in the fact that the surrounding waters are a snorkeling and diving paradise and you are in for one heck of a memorable holiday. Oh, let’s not forget the jungle interior of the island, great for treks. Whew! The list just goes on and on doesn’t it?
If you are looking for an introduction to Saigon and to Vietnam’s beach life, this tour is it for you. In the meantime, if you are also looking to vary your Vietnamese stay a little bit, then both our Vietnam tours and Vietnam day trips should provide you with enough ideas.
