Cu Chi Tunnels and Mekong Escape Full Day Tour
Meet and greet at your hotel at 7.00am. Start on the journey west from Ho Chi Minh City to Cu Chi tunnels located in an area known during the Vietnam War as the 'Iron Triangle' on account of the strength of its communist insurgency. On arrival you will be guided through the famous tunnels used by the communist guerrillas during the Vietnam War. The tunnel network stretches over 250km and extends to three levels underground providing you with a remarkable insight into the hardships, courage, determination and terror of a guerrilla war. Leaving Cu Chi Tunnels, continue on traveling south My Tho, the gateway to the Mekong Delta. From My Tho, you board the boat and travel to one of the islands located in the middle of the Mekong River. On the island visit a fruit orchard and sample some of the local produce, before boarding a smaller sampan that winds along narrow canals. You’ll also have the opportunity to visit a local family’s house and enjoy their hospitality and share with them some tea or rice wine. Return to your hotel at about 5.30pm.
