What You'll Do

Overview
Get a closer look at Vietnam’s wartime history with a visit to the Cu Chi tunnels. On this private day trip from Ho Chi Minh City, combine a tour of the underground network with a boat ride through the upper Mekong Delta from My Tho province.
What to Expect
Your tour begins with pick-up from your Ho Chi Minh City hotel in the early morning, followed by travel with your English-speaking guide to the Cu Chi tunnels. The drive is around 60 km. At Cu Chi you’ll be shown a documentary film about the tunnels and learn how the locals made bamboo traps, rice-paper and rice-wine. You’ll then have the opportunity to explore the web of underground tunnels dug by Vietnamese resistance fighters.

After exploring the tunnels, drive to My Tho. This is one of the provinces that comprise the Mekong Delta area. Cruise by boat along the upper Mekong through a region with islands named after four animals that appear in Buddhist writings – Dragon, Unicorn, Phoenix and Turtle. On this part of the tour you’ll observe some of the activities of regional Vietnamese daily life and appreciate how life here depends on the river.

Next, take a trip by rowboat along the small waterways. You’ll see the agricultural richness of the delta region in its fruit orchards, coconut groves and bee-keeping farms. Stop so you can enjoy honey tea, seasonal fruit, fresh coconut candy and southern Vietnamese folk music. At the end of the tour drive back to Ho Chi Minh City for drop off at your hotel around 18:00.
