Associated with the Vietnam War and it's history


The distance between Phu My port and Cu chi tunnels is about 115 km. Cu chi tunnels are about 45 km northwest of Saigon City center. During the Vietnam War, Cu Chi was a Vietcong stronghold. It was from here that the Vietcong launched many surprise attacks on Saigon, the capital of Republic of Vietnam. In joining this tour, you will learn much about the tunnels system, and the life of the Vietcong and their means of fighting the enemy. After leaving Cu Chi, we will visit Saigon which is considered to be the main tourist hub in Vietnam. A place which attracts most foreign visitors.

Itinerary

The driver and I will meet you at Phu My port gate with a sign bearing your name. The Phu My port gate is 8 to 15 minute walk from the ship. We will then take you to the Cu Chi tunnels. Once there, I will give you a briefing about the Cu Chi tunnels by means of a map and a battlefield model. We will take the forest path to see trapping devices, battle trenches, air vents, etc. . . If you want to know how it feels, you can crawl into the tunnels yourself. Back in Saigon, we will visit war museum, the Notre Dame Cathedral, the Post office and the market. If you wish to have lunch, I can recommend you a local restaurant where you can dine on delicious Vietnamese food at a reasonable price. For me, the most important thing is your satisfaction. I am flexible about the itinerary to ensure you will get the best from your tour.
