You will have a full day tour around the key sites of Saigon, crossing the busy streets of this dynamic city once called the "Pearl of the Far East". Start the tour with the Reunification Palace - the former residence of the President of South Vietnam until April 1975. Then we visit the Notre Dame Cathedral and the City Post Office. Next, we will take a visit to China Town.
In the afternoon, we will travel for about 70km to the northwest of Saigon for a half-day tour of Cu Chi Tunnels - a vast underground defending system of Viet Cong during Vietnam War, which housed up to 10,000 people. The tunnels were constructed with hospitals, living rooms, kitchens, storage...and working areas also in an approximate length of 250km. The remaining tunnels, nowadays, are a must-see destination for tourists who come to Vietnam to get a view of the underground life during the war time. You can also join a shooting trial using an AK47 or MK16 with separate fees.
