Learn about the Vietnam War

During the wartime in Vietnam, Saigon was the capital of South Vietnam. Cu Chi district, which lies in the north west of Saigon, was Vietcong guerrillas' stronghold . From here, Vietcong guerrillas launched many surprise attacks into Saigon. South Vietnamese army and his allies swept through the Cu Chi area. To fight the enemy, Vietcong guerrillas dug tunnels and made many of their own weapons. Visiting the tunnels and some places in Saigon help you experience the Vietnam war and knowing a lot the War here.

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 more authentic places. At the tunnels, we will see two places as follows; Vietcong village (This is not original village, this is a reconstruction of the original village. ) and tunnels complex system. In Saigon, we will see many places as follows; the roof of an apartment building off where the last chopper picked up evacuees one day before the fall of Saigon, the War Museum, the Post Office, Notre Dame Cathedral and market. I am flexible about the itinerary.
