    Day 1: Ho Chi Minh City Arrival (D)
    Arrival in Ho Chi Minh City. Transfer at Tan Son Nhat Airport. After lunch. We pass the now-demolished wartime American Embassy before we visit the Reunification Palace which was the former residence of the President of South Vietnam until end of April 1975, and some French colonial structures including the Notre Dame Cathedral, the Old Sai Gon Post Office. After seeing the Jade Emperor Pagoda and the War Remnant Museum, we continue our trip on to the bustling Ben Thanh Market where anything and everything is for sale. Overnight in HCM city

    Day 2: HCM city - My Tho - HCM City (B,L,D)
    Heading out of the town, we travel by roads to the Mekong Delta, Vietnam's largest rice bowl. On arrival in My Tho we embark on a boat navigating around the intricate small canals in the delta region, which is a great way to observe the local lifestyle close-up and catch a view dotted by many islands. The exciting excursion will pass the lush green vegetation before arriving at the famous Unicorn Island. Here we have opportunities to stroll around an orchard, taste many seasonal fruits and enjoy wonderful traditional music. The next stop of our trip is Ben Tre Province to visit some fascinating local industries. After feasting on a huge lunch we return to Ho Chi Minh, stopping off along the way to see the beautiful Ving Trang Pagoda and the Cho Lon, Saigons Chinatown, which is crammed with sacred temples and mysterious, narrow lanes.

    Day 3: Ho Chi Minh city - Tay Ninh - Cu Chi - Ho Chi Minh City(B,L,D)
    The head quarter of Cao Dai sect is located in Tay Ninh. This religion was founded in 1923 and now numbers over 2 million members. After breakfast we travel by roads to Tay Ninh to see the ornate temple of Cao Dai and attend the fantastic mid-day service when the followers fill the hall wearing colored robes, a symbol of the curious combination of the Confucianism, Taoism and Buddhism. Afterwards we continue to the famous Cu Chi Tunnels, which were an incredible underground network constructed by Vietnamese fighters during the long struggle for independence. The tunnels contained hospitals, plus accommodation and schools, and were used as a military base for the Vietcong in the American war

    Day 4 : HCM city - Dalat (B)
    This morning we leave Ho Chi Minh City and head for the hills, literally. We will stop for lunch at the picturesque Dambri falls, about 15km from the highway. Here you may get the chance to have your photo taken next to an elephant! Arriving at Da Lat,. We follow this with a trip to the summer palace of Vietnam's last Empero. From here we visit the rather bizarre and very aptly named Crazy House, a brightly painted concrete house which winds itself around trees, mimicking their shapes. It now functions as a guesthouse. This evening we will head out to one of the fine restaurants of Da Lat

    Day 5 : Dalat-Nhatrang (B)
    Our drive today will take us out of Da Lat and back down the Prenn Pass for a stop at the ''Chicken village,'. From here we will head east and down the Ngoan Muc pass to the coastal lowlands. Our destination for today is Nha Trang, the country's premier Resort town. This part of the country was once inhabited by an ancient civilization known as the Cham, and our next stop will be at the Po Klong Garai Cham tower. This amazing structure, which has endured the test of time, the elements and indeed war, was built in the 13th century. We will stop for a late lunch at Cam Ranh Bay and arrive in Nha Trang by mid to late afternoon.

    Day 6 : Nhatrang-Phanthiet (B)
    Nhatrang is Vietnam's premier beach resort with a sugar white beach shaded by swaying palms and lapped by the warm South China Sea. It is easy to see why. A busy fishing town with picturesque scenery in its charming harbor, Nhatrang boasts beautiful ancient towers built by the architects of Champa Kingdom. No wonder Vietnam's last emperor, Baodai set his summer villa here overlooking the South China Sea and Nhatrang Bay. To make it complete, Nhatrang has beautiful beaches and stunning site. A boat trip to nearly by fishing villages or a scuba diving trip or just have a mineral mud-both at nearby by natural mud spa is absolutely wonderful when stay in Nhatrang. In the afternoon we drive to Phanthiet

    Day 7 : Phanthiet (B)

    The sleepy fishing town of Phathiet is about 200 km up the coast from Ho Chi Minh city. Today we have whole day at leisure to explore sand dunes are just relax on quiet beach.
