Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam
Experience the history of Vietnam, including the period of French colonization on this 10.5-hour guide. An English-speaking guide will direct you through the city, where you will visit places such as the Saigon Central Post Office and Notre-Dame Basilica. See the Cu Chi Tunnels, used during the Vietnam war in the afternoon and get an up-close view at how the soldiers lived.
Begin your day with a pickup from your hotel at 8:00am. From there, head to your first stop, the Notre Dame Cathedral. Observe the Gothic influence in the architectural design before moving to your next destination. Take a visit to the historic Saigon Central Post Office that resides fairly close to the Cathedral. Then, make your way to the Reunification Palace, also referred to as Independence Palace. In conclusion to the morning portion of your tour, see the remarkable site of the War Remnants Museum.
Come the afternoon, head to the Cu Chi Tunnels, one of Vietnam’s most visited attractions. The tunnels included hospitals, schools, meeting rooms, kitchens and sleeping quarters. In the rivers along the side of the road, you will see ducks and water buffaloes, along with peaceful rice paddies. Watch a short introductory video showing how the tunnels were constructed before entering the tunnels. Then, spend hours exploring the tunnels before enjoying tea and guerilla food that was consumed during the war. Drive back to Ho Chi Minh City at the end of the day.
