You will have an opportunity to take part in a colorful midday ceremony and take photos as your guide offers insight into the unique rituals.

After finish Vietnamese lunch, proceed to the Cu Chi Tunnels, an elaborate network used as a strategic military base by the Viet Cong because of its proximity to the southern capital of Saigon. Containing schools, hospitals, hidden kitchens, meeting rooms and living quarters during the Vietnam War (known in Vietnam as the American War), the underground labyrinth connected several villages and is now preserved by the government as a memorial park.
