Event description

Description

About 1 hour ride by motorbike from Ho Chi Minh city center, Can Gio town still retains its natural beauty with large primitive forests, hence its name "the Green Peninsula" of the city. Though Can Gio doesn't have many nice beaches to offer due to a heavy alluvial level, it does indeed have a peaceful vibe to make up for it. Can Gio is a favourite place for Saigon people to head to when in need of a short weekend getaway. By accompanying a local insider, you can avoid annoying scammers while discovering cool hidden places where locals usually hangout here within a 1 day trip.

Sample Itinerary

Below is a sample itinerary we have created that you can reference for a few ideas when creating your own. Creating your own itinerary really depends on your preferences and the local insiders’ recommendations, meaning you can personalise the trip 100%.

  • Meet up at District 1 and start the trip early in the morning

  • On the way to Can Gio, visit Vam Sat ecological tourist site and explore the epic nature here

  • Stop by Monkey island to explore animal wildlife

  • Head to 30/4 beach and relax (swiming, beach walk or simply enjoy the view)

  • Go to Hang Duong market to buy freshest seafood and enjoy on the beach

  • Option to visit Fisherman Shrine

  • Journey back to Ho Chi Minh city.

You can make your trip 2 day long if you wish to explore further places around Can Gio (Thanh An island, Thieng Lieng island,etc). Please discuss with your local insider carefully for accommodation and transportation arrangements.

Special note

  • Bring along a swimsuit if you plan to swim here. Be sure to stay close to the shore as the sea is occasionally quite rough.

  • The monkeys at Monkey island are quite mischievous and over friendly, they are familiar with seeing people on a daily basis. They may steal your belongings, so make sure to keep your eyes on your belongings.

  • Wear sunscreen, comfortable clothes and footwear. You'll be walking, hiking and doing lots of activities throughout the trip.

  • The highway to Can Gio is quite flat and easy, with a light amount of traffic. However, be sure to go back to the city before nightfall.
