Relaxing day away from Saigon in beautiful area. Amazing to think the mangrove forest has been totally replanted due to Agent Orange. Monkey island a hoot - watching monkeys pinching sunglasses etc from local tourists who wouldn’t listen to the warnings.

Very nice discovery of the mangrove with our French-speaking guide for a whole day. The visit was enjoyable and rewarding. We did not see the time pass thanks to the good humor as well as the dedication of our guide. This experience was unforgettable for us. I recommend it 200%.

Bad day that this 1st of the year: traffic jams to no end meant that we had to make our excursion at a run. Beautiful landscapes Our guide spoke approximately French but we understood it and he understood us as a whole We were only 3 on the bus and that's cool
