Rain-Free Vietnam Beach Holiday

Day One: Saigon to Phan Thiet and A Day at Mui Ne
Depart from Saigon early this morning by private car and driver. Our guide will be along to keep you company, explain the sights, and translate when necessary. Arrive in Phan Thiet before lunch. Along the way you will have a quick look at old Phan Thiet town. The narrow river here is clogged with brightly-painted fishing boats that are surely worth a photo or two. Your afternoon is free to enjoy the beach or just be lazy under a palm tree,
Day Two: Choose from a Large To-Do List
How about wind surfing? A good book and some cold beer on the beach? A little sightseeing? Or maybe eighteen holes at nearby Ocean Dunes, one of Vietnam's finest golf courses. It may be hard to decide. Our guide and driver will gladly show you the local sights, which include a Cham temple ruin and a sea of sand dunes that look like they were brought straight from the Sahara. If you have packed your dancing shoes, we'll take you out for another look at Phan Thiet's disco scene.
Day Three: Dalat or Saigon?
You are on your own this morning. Unless you plan to stay longer, we'll whisk you back to Saigon after lunch. Better yet, continue to delightful Dalaten route to Saigon.
TET Holiday 2019,We regret that we can not accept Vietnam reservations during the period 04 through 09 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.
