Can Gio Mangrove forest is regarded as the “green lungs” of the city. This biosphere reserve is located in the coastal district southeast of Ho Chi Minh City. It is an ideal destination for a day trip out of the city, especially by motorbike. The trip give a great opportunity to admire the eco-friendliness and expansiveness of habitats. The destination is also well-known by both tourists and VC Vet as it used to be very important base in Vam Sac. Its attractions including the Dam Doi (Bat Swamp), Crocodile farms, vast green mangrove forest and the fresh seafood make it a worthwhile “Saigon Outskirt Motorbike Excursion“ to experience.
In the morning our guide & motorbike will pick you up at your hotel/residence. We will head South of Saigon to Hiep Phuoc port via Nguyễn Văn Linh – Nguyễn Hữu Thọ and leave the bustling city of Saigon behind. Along the way, you can experience the local people at work, ride through the shrimp farms, past swift houses and enjoy the most scenic roads of the area to reach for the Rung Sac ( Mangrove forest ) well-known as VC base during the war.
Travelers then take a boat ride along canals naturally covered with mangrove into the Dam Doi (Bat Swamp). We will get on the row boat to get closer to the Eco Reserve area. Have you ever tried to fish for crab by a fishing rod ? Yes, you can try your luck right here. You will reach the core of the Biosphere Reserve of Vam Sat forest where we will visit the crocodile farm and bird reserve.
After your delicious seafood lunch and rest, we will learn how to pass the Cau Khi (Monkey bridge made of 1 or 2 single bamboos poles) as locals do. You cannot miss the panoramic view from the Tang Bông tower. It’s a great opportunity for photos.
In the afternoon, a speed boat takes us back to Rung Sac, we then hop back on the motorbikes to Can Gio beach to visit the stunning local seafood market. You can go swimming, weather and time permitting
The ride back to Ho Chi Minh city via Binh Khanh local ferry gives an interesting experience on how to use the local transportation. The trip will end at your hotel around 17:00.
