Cu Chi is the name of the district that is famous with the extensive network of underground tunnels (Approx. 250km), dug by Viet Minh and later expanded by the Viet Cong, used by both fighters and villagers during 'Vietnam War'. A part of the tunnels has been widened to allow visitors to enter and get a feel for what the life underground must have been like (please note that this will be hot and sweaty, and claustrophobic for some). After lunch at a local restaurant, you will return to the city for the afternoon city tour. Pay a visit to the Re-unification Palace and some of the other major sights such as  the Old Saigon Post Office, Notre Dame Cathedral. Move on to Cho Lon or the city’s China Town where you will stop off at the Thien Hau temple. The Thien Hau temple was built in the early 19th Century dedicated to Thien Hau, the goddess of seafarers.

DAY 4: MEKONG DELTA EXCURSION

Depart at 8:00 AM from your hotel in Ho Chi Minh City. The morning drive takes you toward the Delta. After about 2,5 hours, you will arrive at Ben Tre province, the heart of the Mekong Delta, popularly known as the “rice bowl” of Vietnam, and is famous for its vast rice fields, numerous waterways and beautiful landscapes. Upon arrival, you will embark on a motorized boat trip around the scenic Ham Luong River (a branch of the Mekong) and stop off at various local workplaces to give you a picture of how the local economy works, including a brickwork, where bricks are still painstakingly made by hand; a coconut processing workshop, where you can sample fresh coconut and see how every single part of this versatile nut is turned into food and other products; and a mat weaving house, where straw mats are woven using a hand loom – you can even have a go at weaving yourself! The boat will then stop at a quiet village where you can have a short walk to experience real Delta village life, before boarding your xe loi (a kind of motorized rickshaw) and traveling into the village where you can visit fruit orchards before stopping at a riverside restaurant for a delicious and filling lunch, featuring such local specialties as elephant-ear fish and river shrimp, washed down with some cold drinks or beers. It’s time to board a sampan for a relaxing trip along narrow creeks. Followed by another motorized boat ride back to Pier where your private car awaits. Drive back to Ho Chi Minh City. Evening is yours.
