7:30am: Pick you up at your hotel and depart to Cu Chi Tunnels. The Cu Chi Tunnels have proven to be one of the most famous and historical aspects of the Vietnam War. We will visit the Cu Chi Tunnels, a network of tunnels that stretched for over 200 km. The network of tunnels ran several levels deep and consisted of innumerable trap doors, storage facilities, weapons factories, field hospitals, command centers and kitchens. These tunnels consisted of many ‘moving parts’ making them a livable structure for long periods of time.
For those who are interested, there's even an opportunity to fire off rounds from an AK47 or MK16 at the nearby firing range (option only, fee not included).
After visiting the tunnels, we depart to Mekong Delta. A smooth one-and-half-hour bus ride through rice field scenery along National Highway 1 brings you to the beautiful rural district of Trung Luong.
Take a motorboat to enter My Tho city through natural canal. Then pay a visit to My Tho's colorful street fruit market alongside the canal to soak up the lively atmosphere and watch the locals trade their produce. Lunch at local restaurant.
The Mekong Delta Tours take a leisurely cruise on the Tien River to Tortoise Island. End route, view the fishing port, the traditional stilt houses and boat building workshops, and the other three evocatively named Islands - Dragon, Phoenix and Unicorn islands. Enjoy Southern Vietnamese folk music performed by the islanders.
After visiting the coconut candy mill, take an amazing rowing boat trip along the small canal. Then continue to Ben Tre province, "the country of coconuts", to see a typical agricultural model known as "Garden - Pond - Cage". Enjoy a relaxing cup of honey tea before returning to My Tho via Tan Thach natural canal, cruising under the shadows of water coconut palms. Return to Ho Chi Minh City.
