Start the day with a pickup from your hotel and meet your guide to visit the famous Cu Chi Tunnels. Stretching over 250 kilometers, Cu Chi is one of the most famous and historical aspects of war in Vietnam. The tunnel system was created in 1948 to assist the Viet Minh as they fought the French for independence and became legendary during the 1960s in playing a vital role in the Vietnam War by allowing the Viet Cong (communist guerrillas) to control large rural areas, just 65 kilometers away from Ho Chi Minh City.
This system of tunnels consists of hospitals, rooms, kitchens, store areas, working rooms underground. This tunnel was excavated on the area with clay mixing with laterite. So this tunnel is rather durable and stable. The air is transferred to the tunnels through ventilation holes. In the afternoon, you will visit some of the other major attractions in Ho Chi Minh City: War Remnants, Reunification Palace, Notre Dame Cathedral, and Old Post Office as well as the War Remnants Museum to view a collection of items that stand in testament to the horrors of war. These buildings are considered as the symbols of Ho Chi Minh City because of their architecture and historical meanings. You will have an authentic lunch in between the tour in the local restaurant.
