Cu Chi Tunnels & Saigon City Tour

After breakfast, take a 2-hour drive northwest of Saigon to the famous Cu Chi tunnels area.

Cu Chi Tunnels tour

The tunnels, built during the war years and used for getting around the areas unseen, also served as communication routes, storage facilities for food and weapon caches as well as hospitals and living quarters for guerrilla fighters during the American war. A visit to the underground villages will provide a better understanding of the tunnels history, the hardship of life in the tunnels and the Vietnamese resilience during combat. After the tunnel tour, transfer to a local family home to have a rest and enjoy a home hosted meal. Later, transfer back to Saigon after lunch.

Saigon city tour

Saigon is the youngest and most vibrant city of Vietnam with newly-built skyscrapers and modern lifestyle; but sheltered behind that splendid beauty are thousands of untold stories about its true local life. Hidden away from the main districts of the city, the history and culture thriving in these hidden streets is fascinating and absorbing. This afternoon, drive to a secret weapon chamber which the Viet Cong used as a place to hide and store weapons during Vietnam War. Weave through narrow back alleys, opportunity to meet and chat with the locals who are living in tiny houses. Keep strolling through the alley mazes for a closer look into the real daily activities of people.

Then chill out at a coffee shop tucked away in an old French colonial apartment block. Meander across a local market to meet a street artist who has spent half of his life making souvenir carvings. If you want your rings, pens or other souvenirs carved with names, dates or a poem, he surely can help. Later, you may like to visit a hidden restaurant where you need to get on an antique elevator to reach to the top.
