Experience two famous attractions in Vietnam


Approximately 70km away from Ho Chi Minh City's centre, Cu Chi tunnels is one of the most famous historical vestiges of Viet Nam's national liberation war. The network consists of over 200km of tunnels connected with one another like a cobweb. With determination and endurance the tunnels were dug and removed with rudimentary tools, then camouflaged the openings so well that nobody could find them.

My Tho is 86km away from Ho Chi Minh City and one of the attractive destinations not to be missed. The major economy of My Tho is from agriculture. Coconut trees occupy most of its land, thus it dominates the My Tho's scenery.
There will be activities such as taking a boat ride on Tien River, overlooking the floating houses along the river, sitting on a horse-cart and taking part in learning how to make the coconut candies as well as participating in rowing a small boat in a canal…

Itinerary

7:30am I'll pick up you at hotel we will drive to Cuchi. Upon arrival, we start the visit of the famous Cuchi Tunnels which consist of an incredible underground tunnel network constructed by Vietnamese resistance fighters (VietCong) during both the French and American wars. Start the visit with the BenDinh sections of the tunnel. Here you can imagine what it was like to be a guerrilla complete with Russian Carbine rifles. Have lunch at a local restaurant then we continue visiting the Mytho City, take a leisurely boat trip to Tortoise Island. Then disembark and go for a gentle stroll through the picturesque orchards and fruit garden. Enjoy a boat ride through TanThach natural canal in Ben Tre. Return to the water for a relaxing rowing boat ride along a small canal, cruising in the shade of the water coconut trees. Learn about bee-keeping and enjoy a cup of honey tea to the accompaniment of traditional Vietnamese folk music.

A Recent Review of this tour

Lee was a very competent and knowledgable guide who is also punctual. He gave us a lot of in depth information about the history of Vietnam and as we visited the sights, it was quite clear that his heart is in his work. He was also really flexible in adjusting the tour to our requirements. We would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone looking for an experienced, competent guide. Many thanks Lee.
