Purple Dragon's perfect first-time Ho Chi Minh City tour includes a full day of Saigon sightseeing, plus your choice of Mekong Delta or Tay Ninh and Ba Den Mountain

Enjoy three nights in Ho Chi Minh City to put your finger on the pulse of this exciting and historic city, explore the sights, sample the hard-to-find nightlife, and enjoy a day trip to the lush Mekong Delta, or Tay Ninh and cool, scenic Ba Den Mountain. You will have plenty of time for shopping for budget-priced local crafts, including lacquer, silk and works of art, and taste the best of Vietnamese cuisine in the city's trendy restaurants. You do not have to be gay to enjoy this package. Many mainstream guests choose us because they know they will get something better from a gay company.

Day One: Welcome to Saigon

Your Vietnam adventure begins at Ho Chi Minh City's Tan Son Nhat airport, where our guide greets you and escorts you to your hotel. The remaining time on this day and evening are free for you to see and be seen. Cocktails on the rooftop of the Rex? Dinner in a chic (or funky) outdoor restaurant? Saigon is yours to explore.

Day Two: Saigon's Many Pleasures

After an early breakfast you are out the door to enjoy the humming city with your guide. See a flurry of Saigon sights today: The History Museum, Reunification Palace, Notre Dame Cathedral, and the War Crimes Museum. Lunch in the food court of the cavernous Ben Thanh Market. No white table linen here, but the incredible array of toothsome Vietnamese street food is a gastronomic pleasure that few tourists ordinarily experience. After lunch, wander and shop for bargains (our helpful guide will assist in good-humored negotiations). Then, it's off to Cho Lon, Ho Chi Minh City's Chinatown, crammed with fascinating temples and mysterious, narrow lanes to explore. You are free tonight to dine with a new friend or step out onto one of Saigon's jam-packed dance floors.

Day Three: Journey to the Mekong Delta

After an early breakfast, embark with your guide and drive south through rice fields and tropical forest to My Tho in the lush Mekong River Delta. Visit the Vin Trang Pagoda along the way. Take a lazy three-hour boat trip on the river, past verdant vegetation and coconut plantations. Visit a honey farm, a former VC stronghold, and a coconut candy factory (yum!). Return to Saigon in the early evening. Your night is free.

Day Four: What Comes Next?

Your morning is at liberty. Later, we will deliver you to the airport for your departure flight, but why not extend your stay and visit nearby always-tropical Phan Thiet Beach, the utterly charming French Hill Station town of Dalat, Hanoi and Halong Bay, Sapa, or the ancient wonders of Hue and Hoi An!

TET Holiday 2016: We regret that we can not accept Vietnam reservations during the period 08 through 14 February due to the TET (Vietnamese New Year) Holiday. Since it is considered unlucky to work during this period, practically everything closes, everyone takes a vacation, and some prices double. We do not recommend visiting during this time because there are no public festivities and visitors are left with almost nothing to do.
