Part of the Vietnam War history


During the wartime in Vietnam, Saigon was the capital of South Vietnam. Cu Chi district, which lies in the north west of Saigon, was the Vietcong guerrillas' stronghold . From here, the Vietcong launched many surprise attacks into Saigon. The South Vietnamese army and its allies swept through the Cu Chi area. To defend themselves, the Vietcong guerrillas dug tunnels and manufactured their own weapons. Visiting the tunnels and other places in Saigon, you will see a lot of evidence related to the Vietnam War.

Itinerary

The driver and I will meet you at the hotel lobby in Ho Chi Minh city. Then we will take you to the Cu Chi tunnels. The distance between these tunnels and Ho Chi Minh city center is about 70 km. We can avoid the tourist crowds with a visit to the less commercial but more authentic places. At our destination, we will see the following places of interest: Vietcong village (This is not the original village, it is a reconstruction. ) and complex tunnel system. Back in Saigon, we will visit these places:
The roof of an apartment building where the last helicopter picked up evacuees the day before the fall of Saigon, the War Museum, the Post Office, Notre Dame Cathedral and the local market. I am flexible about the itinerary.
