Itinerary

Day 1: Ho Chi Minh, Vietnam

Xin chao! Welcome to Ho Chi Minh City (formerly known as Saigon).

Upon arrival at Tan Son Nhat International airport (SGN), meet your local guide and driver for your transfer to your accommodation for check-in.

Day 2: Ho Chi Minh, Vietnam

Get an early start around 07:45 and head to the historic Cu Chi tunnels (Ben Dinh), approximately 70kms away from central Ho Chi Minh City.

The Cu Chi tunnels represent one of the most famous vestiges of the Vietnam War and one of the keys to Vietnam’s victory. This vast and amazing subterranean network consists of over 200kms of tunnels connected with one another in an intricate cobweb formation. With determination and endurance, the tunnels were dug with rudimentary tools and the openings were camouflaged so well that no enemy could find them.

Upon arrival around 9:30am, view a short presentation video about the Cu Chi tunnels originally used during the Vietnam War before experiencing the famous tunnels from the inside. Crawl into these fascinating underground dwellings to get a feel of the stamina and grit it took to live in the tunnels. Afterwards, you can try the steamed tapioca root which was the main staple food in Cu Chi during the war. Next, for those interested, there will be an opportunity to fire off rounds from an AK47 or MK16 at the nearby rifle range (not included).

Around 13:30, we will be back in Ho Chi Minh, where the tour will come to an end.

Day 3: Ho Chi Minh - Mekong Delta, Vietnam

During the cruise, see fish cages and floating houses on the river. The boat will take you to a small canal, where you can escape the busy town. The cruise through the coconut trees lined canal will take you to a coconut island in Ben Tre.

Disembark, walk around the village and visit a local family to enjoy tropical fruit, taste honey tea, honey wine and listen to Vietnamese traditional music, performed by the villagers. Continue walking on the village’s road to a coconut candy shop to learn how to make candy and see some handicrafts made from coconut trees. Take a walk through the village and discover many kinds of fruits, flowers, trees, and local houses. Take your time and take nice photos while enjoying the natural scenery.
