    Cu Chi and Saigon City Tour (full day)
    Departs everyday
    Saigon as the city is still frequently referred to be Vietnam’s largest city. It is a fast-paced city full of contrasts as street vendors selling fruit and vegetables can be seen next to glitzy western-style bars and boutiques. Saigon’s history is only 300 years old. In 1859 the city was captured by the French and became the capital of Indochina. From 1956 until its dramatic demise in April 1975 it was the capital of the US-backed Republic of Vietnam. This half day city tour unravels Saigon’s turbulent past and also provides a glimpse into the fascinating variety the city has to offer.
    ITINERARY IN DETAILS:
    PICKUP TIME FROM 08.00AM – 08.30AM, and start our tour with:
    • The Reunification Palace: Here on April 30th 1975 the ‘American 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.
    • Notre Dame Cathedral and Old Post Office: Built between 1877 and 1883 this is one of the best examples of classical French colonial architecture.
    • Jade Emperor Pagoda: Built in 1909 in honor of the supreme Taoist god, this is one of the most spectacularly atmospheric temples in HCMC, stuffed with statues of phantasmal divinities and grotesque heroes. The pungent smoke of incense fills the air, obscuring the exquisite woodcarvings.
    Lunch is served at local Pho restaurant. After that, we will drive about 1,5hrs to Cu Chi tunnels. Upon arrival, we start with:
    • Watch a brief of propaganda video, which explains how the tunnels were used to successfully defeat American military forces in combat.
    • The tour continues and the guide explains some traps that were placed in the jungles of Vietnam 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 gin range where you can try to fire an automatic or semi automatic weapons 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. Drive back to Saigon.
    End of tour, the car will transfer you back to your hotel about 06.00PM – 07.00PM.
    Notice: the itinerary may be changed without notice, but we ensure you will visit all the sights mentioned.
