Take in the busy rhythm of daily life in Cholon, the Chinatown of Ho Chi Minh City. Tour the area full of teahouses, pagodas, and people, and learn a little more about the unique culture within the city.

War Remnants Museum Visit
2USD per person. Visit the War Remnants Museum, a gut-wrenching but worthwhile experience that includes three storeys of exhibits and military hardware. Learn about the devastation that occurred in Saigon during the Vietnam War, a period that greatly contrasts the joy and liveliness of the Vietnamese people today.

Dam Sen Water Park Visit
4USD per person. Get away from the hustle and bustle of Ho Chi Minh City at this nearby water park. A lush setting and refreshing water make Dam Sen the perfect place for the whole family to cool off and have some fun—splash around or take a ride down one of the slides.

Lokale Transportmittel
Wie du auf deiner Reise von A nach B kommst, hängt größtenteils von der Wahl der Reiseart und des Reisestils ab. In den meisten Fällen benutzen wir lokale Transportmittel – Busse, Taxis, Nahverkehrszüge und dergleichen – die preiswerteste und abwechslungsreichste Art des Reisens.

Unterkünfte mit Charme
Die Unterkünfte haben wir so ausgewählt, dass sie der lokalen Kultur am ehesten entsprechen. Je nach der Art deiner Reise und dem Reisestil haben wir unterschiedliche Unterkünfte für dich ausgewählt: Mal schläfst du im Hotel in Downtown, mal bei einer Gastfamilie, und mal zeltest du unter dem Sternenhimmel.

Regionale Küche
Einige Mahlzeiten sind im Reisepreis enthalten, aber oft kannst du die lokalen Spezialitäten ganz nach deinem eigenen Geschmack und Budget selbst entdecken (und dein Reiseleiter hat dabei viele Geheimtipps auf Lager). Mahlzeiten können alles umfassen – von einem selbst zubereiteten Festmahl, Abendessen in einem renommierten Restaurant oder allem, was auf dem Markt gut aussieht.

Internationale Gruppen
Unsere Gruppen sind im Durchschnitt mit 12 Personen unterwegs und sind eine bunte Mischung aus Einzelreisenden, Freunden und Paaren jeden Alters aus der ganzen Welt. Du wirst in deiner Gruppe die unterschiedlichsten Persönlichkeiten kennenlernen und auf deiner Reise jede Menge neue interessante Leute treffen. Mit Menschen aus verschiedenen Ländern werden alle unserer Erlebnisreisen auf Englisch durchgeführt.

Erfahrene Reiseleiter
Auf jeder Reise wirst du von einem erfahrenen englischsprechenden Reiseleiter begleitet, der deine Reise mit Einblicken in die Kultur des Gastlandes bereichert und dir oftmals ganz spontan fantastische Erlebnisse ermöglicht, die deine Reise zu einem einzigartigen persönlichen Abenteuer machen. Das wichtigste Anliegen des Reiseleiters: deine Reise zur besten Erfahrung deines Lebens zu machen.

Freiheit & Unabhängigkeit
Mit einem großen, unpersönlichen Reisebus erlebst du garantiert keine wirklichen Abenteuer. Lust auf einen Marktbesuch? Oder lieber die Seele baumeln lassen in einem gemütlichen Café am Straßenrand? Aber gerne! Bei unseren Reisen zeigen wir dir die wichtigsten Sehenswürdigkeiten und lassen dir freie Zeit, um dein ganz eigenes Abenteuer zu erleben.
