In the morning
6.45 am – 7.30 am: Our bus and guide will pick you up at your hotel in Ho Chi Minh City Center ( District 1). It will take about 1.5 hour drive to get to Cu Chi Tunnels.
Upon arrival, an introductory video on the Cu Chi tunnels will be presented, discussing initial details on when it was made and how it helped Vietnamese people survived in the harsh conditions of the wartime.
After the video, you will experience walking in the tunnels yourself. With the help of your guide, you can explore the remaining areas and tunnel system which include weapons factories, field hospitals and command centers as well as special living areas with kitchens and bedrooms that helped dwellers to meet their basic needs. There are also many hidden trap doors within the maze-like tunnels for the security purposes during the war.
Special tea and cassava (guerrillas’ food during the war) will be served. A light snack before heading to My Tho City.

Continue our way to the My Tho city. A relaxing boat trip on Tien River with spectacular view of natural beauty of four beautiful islands such as Dragon, Unicorn, Phoenix and Tortoise on the riverside.
