3.4. Evening: Move back to Saigon

My experience traveling to Can Gio is that you should return before 5pm. Many roads from Can Gio back to Saigon will not have street lights, so to ensure safety, you should depart from Can Gio around 4 - 5 hours. On the way back, you can stop by small shops at the foot of Rach Don Bridge to enjoy a cool glass of coconut water.
