Days 12-13 - Phu My (for Ho Chi Minh City) (overnight)

Ho Chi Minh City’s streets are filled with beeping mopeds, tuk-tuks and cars - but explore on foot and you can duck down quiet backstreets and discover tranquil parks and pagodas. The city is also the jumping-off point for the Mekong Delta, a network of canals and tributaries edged with rice paddies, coconut palms and mango orchards.
