What To Expect

Your local guide will pick you up at your hotel at around 07:30 am and drive directly to Xuyen Moc (Ba Ria-Vung Tau) province by modern private air-conditioned car. The 55-km section of Thong Nhat, Cam My, Long Khanh, and Xuan Loc in Dong Nai Province is truly a great greenway that provides the most beautiful scenery of many fruit gardens, paddy fields, and local villages in those districts. After 2.5 hours of driving, you will arrive at Mrs. Thuan's house in Bong Trang commune. The reason why we take you here is that you can only live the local life by spending time with local people. And Mrs. Thuan is the warmest, friendliest person on earth you've ever met.

Explore her dragon fruit farms in the area and learn about its farming. Mingle with the locals and enjoy learning more about local life, exchanging cultures and perspectives, walking around her dragon fruit farm, while learning how the local people take care of their farms, drinking Vietnamese traditional coffee or ice tea, enjoying local fruits (dragon fruit, jackfruit, etc. depending on the season) and freshen up after your drive.

Afterward, back to Mrs. Thuan's house where a tasty authentic Vietnamese lunch cooked by Mrs. Thuan is waiting for you. Enjoy a range of dishes from seafood to freshly-picked vegetables. Her seafood hotpot is something you can die for. We don't even count the yummy dessert Mrs. Thuan will prepare for you. So if you're a food lover, this tour is not to be missed. During the meal, you will be amazed by listening to many meaningful stories of the Vietnamese cuisine from the hosts.

After lunch, it's beach time! Say goodbye to Mrs. Thuan and depart from Bong Trang commune, it takes 45 minutes driving to Ho Coc Beach. You can truly feel the peaceful and natural atmosphere by watching pepper farm, cashew farm, and Phuoc Buu Nature Reserve on the way (spending 30 minutes walking through one of the rare jungles in Vietnam if you want). When arriving at the beach, you will have free time to relax, enjoy the cool wind and fresh coconut juice (or cold beer). When you're fulfilled by fresh air and refreshments, we will drive back to Ho Chi Minh City and end the tour at your hotel.

Still have question?

How do I book on Inspitrip?

For most experiences on Inspitrip, there are two options: Small Group and Private tour. For both options, you can chat with your local guide and other people in your group even before the trip takes place.
  • Small group tour: operates with a maximum number of people. If you like to make new friends, this is a great option. You would pay for the trip to confirm your slot, then join a chat group with your local guide as well as fellow travel buddies, everything would be on Inspitrip. Get to know them!
  • Private tour: maximize your privacy and allows you to freely customize the itinerary. First, request to communicate any specific needs you may have, wait a couple minutes for these requests to be confirmed, and then you can proceed to payment.

What are the cancellation and refund policies?

Cancellation is free if you cancel up to 48 hours before the trip date. We believe that this is the fairest way to ensure that both our travelers and local guides are happy.

Does the Small Group option still operate if there are less than the maximum number of people signed up?

Yes, even if you are the only person who signs up for the trip on a given date, the tour will still take place.
