You can feed monkeys, but don’t carry the food with you, as monkeys will try to take it from you. Crocodiles live in protected area, and you can feed them only if with a guide. Take a guided tour to go deeper into the jungle, and find out how Vietnamese soldiers defended themselves from US army, and even crocodiles. Go to the forest to see mangroves to see this biosphere reserve. Use our Ho Chi Minh City vacation builder to add Can Gio and other attractions to your Ho Chi Minh City vacation plans.
