RETURN: 19:00 PM ROUTE: HCMC – CU CHI – MY THO – HCMC
Pick up at your hotels in Ho Chi Minh City. The trip to Cu Chi will take you an approximately one-and-a-half-hour bus drive. Before exploring the tunnels, you will watch an introductory video about how the tunnels were made and how Vietnamese people survived in the harsh conditions of wartime.
Then, spend your time exploring the remaining areas and tunnel system, including special living areas with kitchens and bedrooms alongside other martial facilities like weapons factories, field hospitals, and command centers helping whoever lives inside the tunnels meet their basic needs.
Besides, there are also many hidden trap doors and dangerous traps within the maze-like tunnels for security purposes during the war.
Afterward, special tea and cassava (guerrillas’ food during the war) will be served—break time.
Have lunch at the local restaurant. Continue to visit My Tho city. With a boat trip on the Tien River, you will be excited by the light breeze from the river and the natural beauty of four beautiful islands such as Dragon, Unicorn, Phoenix, and Tortoise along the riverside.
Cruise through the small canal by sampan, treat yourself to the beauty of the countryside, and take a short cycle around the village which will certainly be an unforgettable experience when participating in the Mekong Delta tour. Visit the coconut candy workshop, and enjoy seasonal delicious fruits & honey tea. Get a chance to listen to Southern Vietnamese folk music which is performed by local people.
Return to Ho Chi Minh City. Trip ends.
