Day 2: Cat Tien -  Saigon 
Nam Cat Tien is the largest national park in South Vietnam. Cat Tien National Park is part of the wet tropical forest complex and one of the specious natural forests remaining in Vietnam. That is why this area is significant not only in Vietnam but in the world as well. The diversity of the Park has been recognized by WWF when this international organization selected the Park as one of 200 global ecological zones including the land and its water area with its well-known biological diversity. In 2001 Cat Tien National Park has been listed by UNESCO as the 411th biosphere Reserve Zone in the world. 
In the dry season: After 2 hours trekking into green tropical forest, we return to hotel to check out. From the head quarter of the park, we pedal on paths to sub-Nam Cat Tien forest via Dak-Lua, the lush eco-system of a semi-evergreen forest and wetland-flooded evergreen forest in. Then cycle ride along a quiet section of road through scenic rural villages before crossing river and returning to Saigon by vehicle in late afternoon. Lunch is on the way back to Saigon.
