At 19:00 we’ll pick up at your hotel and go to Bach Dang wharf for relaxing dinner aboard a dazzlingly decorated Riverboat.

After show, we’ll take you around the city by “Xich Lo” – was the most popular transportation means in Vietnam in the past, but is now a representation of the Vietnamese way of life.
