In order to help out those who don't have enough time to go on an overnight tour, we do offer full-day or just one-morning birding in the area around Ho Chi Minh City.

We will pick up you at your hotel or home in the early morning, drive outside Ho Chi Minh City center to visit some swamps/wetlands in District 2 and District 9 where we can find Prinias (Yellow-bellied, Plain, Ashy and Common), Kingfishers (White-throated, Collared, Stork-billed, Black-capped) Pied Fantail, Egrets, Herons and many other species. After birding for awhile, we will find a coffee spot for our take-way breakfast.

After our breakfast break we will bird a bit more until 11:00 am, and then drive to Sai Gon botanical garden, where we will have lunch. Then, after a bit of rest, we will walk through the gardens, where we'll see several free-flying birds, including Streak-eared Bulbul, Ashy Drongo, Common and Great Ioras, Kingfishers, Coppersmith Barbet, some wintering flycatchers, Fantail, Tailorbirds, Ashy and Scarlet Minvet, and Spotted Dove. Sometimes we see the Drongo Cuckoo and Plaitnive Cuckoo. We will take you back to your hotel around 4:00 pm.

We have several other suggestions for 1-day trips; please contact us for details.
