Reunification Palace 6

This day tour takes you to the tunnels of Cu Chi and gives you a glimpse of Ho Chi Minh Cityai??i??s main landmarks. First travel 1.5-hours northwest of Ho Chi Minh City where you will be lead through the jungle as your guide explains the history of the war, the ingenuity of the Cu Chi residents and the daily activities of the people. Return to Ho Chi Minh City for lunch and in the afternoon visit the historic Reunification Palace, the Old Post Office, Notre Dame Cathedral and lively Ben Thanh Market.

Depart Ho Chi Minh City for the drive to Cu Chi district. Leaving the city behind, the scenery changes to views of rice paddies, villagers drying noodles by the side of the road and other scenes typical to southern Vietnam. About 70Km North-West of the down town of Ho Chi Minh City, Cu Chi Tunnel is well known as underground village tunnels with over 200Km, where the heroic guerrillas had been living and fighting during a American War Time. It may be incredible if you do not experience a short, exciting trip through labyrinth of interlaced tunnels and stop at Ben Duoc War Memorial to over 40.000 martyrs. Then challenge yourselves with rifle shooting at shooting range (USD 2 per bullet for your option). Come back HCMC. After enjoying Traditional Vietnamese lunch at local restaurant, we visit Reunification Palace, nearby are Notre Dame Cathedral, Post office, Opera House, City Hall and walking Dong Khoi street, you can get photo shooting opportunities and shopping. After this historical visit continue to the War Remnants Museum where exhibition halls display imagery of both the French and ‘American’ wars. The last stop is Ben Thanh — the central market for the city and one of its liveliest and most colorful areas. Following your tour head back to your hotel.
