Welcome to Ho Chi Minh City – the largest city in Vietnam. Our guide and driver will meet you at the airport and transfer you to the hotel. The city is the hub of commerce and culture with a great blend of temples and skyscrapers on the streets. There are so many things to do in this vibrant city.

The balance of the day is on your leimsre.  Meals on your own account. Overnight at the hotel.

Meals included: N/A

08:00 – 08:30: Your guide and driver will pick you up at your hotel. We will visit the following places of interest:

  • The Reunification Palace: Here on April 30th, 1975 the Vietnam War officially ended when tank number 843 of the North Vietnamese Army crashed through the gates of what was, at the time the residence of the President of the Republic of Vietnam.
  • War Remnants Museum: Formerly known as the Museum of American War Crimes, this is a poignant display of the futility of war. Some of the black and white photography in the ‘Requiem’ exhibit is particularly touching, dedicated to foreign and Vietnamese journalists and photographers who perished during the conflict. The courtyard outside contains the spoils of war, namely rusting jets, tanks, and cannons captured from the American military machine.
  • Notre Dame Cathedral and Old Post Office: Built between 1877 and 1883 this is one of the best examples of classical French colonial architecture. Remarkably every stone used in its creation was shipped from France to Vietnam. Her two 40m towers, topped with iron spires dominate the city’s skyline. The Old Post Office is another example of French colonial architecture and the country’s largest post office.

After a few hours discovering the city, you will enjoy your lunch at a local restaurant before we drive about 1,5 hours through the pleasant countryside before arriving at Củ Chi. We may stop along the way for refreshments and a toilet.

  • Upon arrival, you’ll watch a brief propaganda video, which explains how the tunnels were used to msccessfully defeat American military forces in combat.
  • The tour continues and the guide explains some traps that were placed in the jungles of Việt Nam to either maim American soldiers or create panic amongst the ranks.
  • From here, you can enter one of the tunnel entrances and crawl through the tunnels is a real experience to imagine how people could live there for an extended period!
  • There is a shooting range where you can try to fire an automatic or semi-automatic weapon for a fee (this fee is not included)
  • Take some rest at the end for a taste of Cu Chi boiled tapioca and thinking what humans are capable of when having to defend their home.

We drive 1,5 hours and the tour ends between 6 pm – 7 pm at District 1, HCMC. Transfer back to your hotel. Free to go shopping in the afternoon. Meals on your own.

Overnight at the hotel.

08:30 – 09:00: Our guide and driver will pick you up at your hotel, and drive 1,5 hours to My Tho. We will stop along the way for refreshments and a toilet.

Upon arrival, we board a motorboat and cruise along a vast network of canals and channels to enjoy beautiful views of the Mekong River, including four famous islands “Dragon, Unicorn, Turtle, and Phoenix”.

Stop at one of the floating fish houses, in nets and wire baskets under their house, the villagers cultivate freshwater fish and shrimp – a major export product of the region.

Cross the River to the other side, you will stop at a traditional workshop to witness a step-by-step process on how to make coconut candy, and honey farming… while trying some yourself and listening to traditional music.

Enjoy what local people offer by hand rowing a sampan along the shady, breezy canal. We will transfer to local transportation called Xe Loi to travel throughout the villages.

Lunch will be served at a riverside restaurant with a Vietnamese set menu. Please request in advance if you have a food allergy, are a vegetarian, or observe Halal.
