Pulsierende Metropole Saigon

After your arrival at Saigon International Airport, you will be warmly welcomed by your driver and accompanied to your hotel for check-in.

Saigon, die größte und lebhafteste Stadt Vietnams, erstreckt sich entlang des Saigon-Flusses im Südosten des Landes. Sie war die Hauptstadt von Französisch-Indochina und Südvietnam, bis sie 1975 von den Nordvietnamesen erobert und nach Hồ Chí Minh benannt wurde. Die Stadt ist bekannt für ihre gut erhaltene französische Kolonialarchitektur und ihr lebendiges Straßenleben. Sie ist auch ein kultureller Schmelztiegel, der orientalische Traditionen mit westlichen Einflüssen verbindet. Saigon ist das wirtschaftliche Herz Vietnams und ein beliebtes Reiseziel für internationale Besucher. Ab diesem Moment übernehmen wir einen exzellenten Full-Service und kümmern uns passioniert um Ihre Wünsche und Anliegen.

Ihr Aufenthalt in Saigon wird der Beginn eines unvergesslichen Abenteuers sein, und wir sind hier, um sicherzustellen, dass jede Minute davon magisch wird. Willkommen in Saigon – einer Stadt, die nur darauf wartet, von Ihnen entdeckt zu werden!

Cu Chi Tunnel Ben Duoc

Today's tour takes you to the authentic Ben Duoc Cu Chi Tunnels, which offer a deeper and less crowded experience compared to the Ben Dinh Tunnels, which are often heavily frequented.

Cu Chi, about 60 km from Ho Chi Minh City, is today a place of great historical significance for its role during the Vietnam War. The region is legendary for its impressive tunnel system, which stretches for more than 220 km. This place attracts both Vietnamese and international visitors and is a fascinating destination for exploration.

Together you will explore this area steeped in history and delve into the past to discover the fascinating world of the Cu Chi Tunnels.

In the afternoon, together with our passionate guide, who has called Saigon his home for many years, you will immerse yourself in the vibrant life of the "Pearl of the Orient". You will be impressed by the elegant splendor of the French-colonial buildings and immerse yourself in the world of traditional pharmacies and lively markets.

Your journey takes you through the French-colonial center of Saigon, where sights such as the Notre Dame Cathedral, the historic main post office, the old city hall and the majestic opera house await you. But even in the heart of the city, the authenticity of Vietnam remains tangible - be it in the lively alleyways of Le Cong Kieu, which beckon with antiques and curiosities, in the narrow streets that reflect the real life of the people, or over a refreshing glass of freshly squeezed sugar cane juice at a traditional "wet market".

You will take a look at the imposing Bitexco Tower (from the outside), walk along the Nguyen Hue pedestrian zone and immerse yourself in the Chinese-influenced "Cho Lon" district. Your path will take you through the lively streets and winding alleys of Chinatown until you finally reach the colorful Cho Tan Dinh market. The diverse range of goods and the artistic presentation offer a sensory experience of a special kind. Immerse yourself in the history and culture of Cu Chi and Saigon with us!

My Son Tempel

A remarkable adventure awaits you this morning: a visit to the temple city of My Son, a spiritual oasis of the Cham, the remains of which extend around 50 km south-east of Hoi An. My Son was once the living religious heart and thus one of the most important sites of the ancient kingdom of Champa in Vietnam.

Cham architecture is characterized by the remarkable skill of seamlessly joining bricks together without mortar to form substantial temple structures. This unique technique, coupled with the magnificent ornamentation, is a jewel in the crown of Southeast Asia. Since 1999, the temples of My Son have been a proud part of the UNESCO World Heritage Site, a testament to their historical significance and architectural brilliance.

After your discovery of the fascinating temples, you will have the opportunity to explore the ruins amidst a picturesque green landscape of hills and rivers.

Our tour will take you through the old quarter of Hanoi on foot and in your private vehicle, accompanied by a local guide who will also introduce you to Vietnamese cuisine if you wish.

You will be taken off the beaten track in the French Quarter to night markets and the famous Ta Hien Beer Street in the capital. Here you will have the opportunity to try authentic dishes and get to know Vietnamese cuisine.

Of course, the most famous sights should not be missed, such as Hoan Kiem Lake, the Red Bridge, the Temple of Literature, the Tran Quoc Pagoda, the one-pillar pagoda Chua Mot cot and the Jade Mountain Temple (Ngoc Son) with its striking dragon heads.

Trang An Rowing

After breakfast today, you will drive to the Trang An Grottoes, an extraordinary natural beauty with majestic limestone mountains rising out of the rice fields. Deep within the interconnected chains of towering mountains are untouched places with mystical valleys, numerous freshwater ponds and forests. Climb aboard a traditional sampan that will gently row you along the magnificent river through numerous caves: The 320-meter-long Hang Toi (Dack) Cave, the 90-meter-long Sang (Light) Cave and the 250-meter-long Hang Nau Ruou Cave. Each passage holds new surprises and secrets hidden in secluded, quiet valleys, transporting you to another world and time. The fauna and flora are abundant, and mountain goats leaping from cliff to cliff are frequently seen.

Welcome to a wonderful afternoon tour in Hoa Lu, the old capital of Vietnam. You start your journey with a leisurely bike ride towards Hoa Lu, where the history of Vietnam comes alive. In 968, Dinh Bo Linh crowned himself king and made Hoa Lu the capital for the next 41 years (968 - 1009). Under the Dinh Dynasty, King Dinh Tien Hoang ruled the land of Dai Co Viet for 12 years before it became the capital for another 29 years under King Le Dai Hanh during the Le Dynasty. In 1010, King Ly Thai To moved the capital from Hoa Lu to Thang Long, now Hanoi, and Hoa Lu became the old citadel. Today there are two temples in Hoa Lu, which were built on the site of the old royal palace. One is dedicated to King Dinh Tien Hoang, the other to King Le Dai Hanh. Visiting these temples offers you the opportunity to learn more about the feudal dynasties and historical periods of Vietnamese history.

Bich Dong Pagoda Viewpoint

Once you arrive at the Van Long Nature Reserve, you will board a bamboo rowing boat and row along the beautiful wetlands. You will enjoy the spectacular scenery surrounded by rice fields, lotus ponds and towering limestone mountains.

There are also thousands of caves in the Van Long region, and with an area of up to 3500 hectares, Van Long combines the features of Halong Bay in the countryside to amaze you.

In the afternoon, you will visit the famous Bich Dong Pagoda, where you will have the opportunity to take beautiful pictures.

Bich Dong Pagoda is the most magical cave in Vietnam and a place of natural beauty in the northern provinces. This cave contributes to the development of spiritual tourism as there are pagodas in the cave, as in other caves of Ninh Binh. Bich Dong Pagoda, literally the pagoda of the Emerald Cave, is located 3 km east of Tam Coc in the Truong Yen Mountains. The only way to the pagoda is to enter the steep rock, but what awaits you there is definitely worth a visit.
