This morning, you will take an excursion to Cu Chi Tunnel. The Cu Chi Tunnels consist of more than 200km of underground tunnels. This main axis system has many branches connecting to underground hideouts, shelters, and entrances to other tunnels. The network included innumerable trap doors, specially constructed living areas, storage facilities, weapons factories, field hospitals, command centers and kitchens. Today, the remaining tunnels have become a major tourist attraction, giving you a unique experience and a feel of what underground life must have been like during the U.S.-Vietnam War.
Back to Ho Chi Minh City for lunch, then this afternoon you will take a halfday city tour visit: the Reunification Palace, the Opera House and the Hotel de Ville. If desired, you can also visit the moving War Remnants Museum. You'll also be able to explore colorful outdoor markets and Dong Khoi Street, the city's main shopping boulevard with shops selling clothes and accessories by new Vietnamese designers, hill tribe crafts, high quality linens and housewares. There is also the modern Ho Chi Minh City with its numerous shopping malls, cinemas, discotheques and a bewildering number of bars. This evening, you'll see what the fuss is all about as you are guided out on the town before an overnight in HCMC.
