What to Expect
Learn what life is like as a farmer in Vietnam on a full-day tour to some of the agricultural villages on the outskirts of Ho Chi Minh City. Try your hand at milking cows, planting rice, and more. The program is ideal for people who want a better understanding of the farming traditions of Vietnam.

Start with a hotel pick-up at 08:00, and transfer to meet the farmers and tour their land. See buffalo and cattle in the fields, and learn how fish and prawns are farmed. Continue to areas where mushrooms are grown, and learn about their health benefits, as well as their contribution to the local economy.

Next, you will learn how the various spices and vegetables are used in cooking and for medicine. Help to plant rice or vegetables in the garden, before a cookery demonstration and lunch. Then, it’s time to help milk the cows for your coffee! In the afternoon, you will explore the rice paper villages and visit a rubber tree forest to learn how latex is made.

Transfer to the Cu Chi Tunnels. Built in 1948 as part of Vietnam’s conflict against the French, construction of the tunnels continued over the next 25 years until they became an underground city, complete with living areas, kitchens, storage facilities, weapons factories, field hospitals and command centers that were vital in the Vietnam War.

Watch a video that explains the history of the tunnels, and then visit the secret hideouts, bunkers, and booby traps, as well as the smoke less store of Hoang Cam. For the trigger happy, there will be the chance to fire guns at a nearby rifle range, before your return transfer to Ho Chi Minh City.
