After breakfast, our tour guide will pick you up and start with you on your journey to Cu Chi Tunnels. The Cu Chi Tunnels are an immense network of interconnected tunnels near Saigon that are part of a much larger network lying below much of the country. A guided visit to these tunnels provides a better understanding of their history, the hardship of life underground, and the resilience of the Vietnamese during combat. The tunnels were built and used initially by the Viet Cong guerrillas as hiding spots to protect them from the French air and ground sweeps. They later served as communication routes, storage facilities, hospitals, and living quarters for the guerrilla fighters throughout the Vietnam-American war.
You're invited to enter a section of the tunnels to witness the secrets of the tunnels firsthand. Your guide will also show you various mantraps employed from this period, the remains of an American tank, and numerous B52 bomb craters. There is also the opportunity to fire an M60, M16, or AK47 rifle at the range next to the tunnel complex. After returning to Saigon, learn about the city’s historic landmarks as you tour the city with your guide. Visit the former Independence Palace. The next stop is Ben Thanh Market. In the evening, free time to enjoy the crowded and bustling Ho Chi Minh City – the city of bars, pubs & other nightlife activities.
