Can Gio is now more and more popular for an ideal one day ecological tour. Located in a Southeast suburb of Ho Chi Minh City center, it takes approximately 1.5 hours to get there. A package tour is recommended because public transportation to and from Can Gio might not be a good idea for foreigners. If Ho Chi Minh city center is always crowd and exciting, Can Gio is more quiet and relaxing with lots of natural landscapes. On a small boat along a tiny canal , you can enjoy the fresh air and the cool atmosphere from the trees’ shadows.
