Explore the lush UNESCO Biosphere Reserve during Can Gio forest tour

After departing Saigon, the first stop on your speedboat tour will be a bustling riverside market at the gateway to the Mekong Delta. Here you can observe a traditional market scene, take some great photos and sample the local Mekong produce.

As you depart the market, the slow-paced agricultural world of the Mekong Delta begins to give way. The tapestry of green paddy fields, tropical fruit trees and coconut palms turn to towering mangrove trees looming over the boat, enveloping you in a dusky twilight world.

You have arrived at the UNESCO Biosphere Reserve of Can Gio, one of Vietnam’s most important ecosystems, providing a habitat for 52 species of flora and 200 species of fauna.

Les Rives have excellent relationships with the locals here and you’ll visit traditional fishing hamlets, where fisherman knot their nets by hand by the river. Then you can take a gentle row on the tranquil waters of Giant Bat Lagoon. You can also enjoy a short, guided trek through the mangroves.

At Vam Sat Eco Park, you can visit a crocodile reserve and even feed them (via a fishing rod!). Crocodiles were once common in the region but sadly were hunted to near extinction. And be sure to wander around and meet cheeky gibbons and monkeys, who swing from the trees – kids always enjoy this part of the tour!

You will have plenty of opportunities to see exotic birdlife – both local and migratory – including painted storks and duck-billed pelicans, so bring your binoculars! Can Gio is the perfect tour for wildlife and nature enthusiasts.

As part of the tour, your Les Rives chef will cook you up a delicious traditional Vietnamese lunch including fresh spring rolls, lemongrass chicken and Fried Elephant Ear Fish, a famous Mekong Delta specialty.
