On this sightseeing tour we will start with visiting the famous Ho Chi Minh Post Office, built in colonial-style, and also visit the famous Notre Dame Cathedral. We will then go on to visit Thien Hau pagoda and a specific section that does not exist in any other city of Vietnam - the bustling China Town, where every board is in two languages: Chinese and Vietnamese, and so is the communication of the inhabitants. At the center of this exciting area is a grandiose market: "Cho Lon" meaning The Big Market. A lot of Chinese living in this quarter have obtained great trading success with their know-how, knowledge and wisdom.
After lunch in Ho Chi Minh we will head Northwest to the Cu Chi Tunnels, one of the very few remaining monuments from the Vietnam War. 200km of tunnels, dug by hand and inhabited by the forces of the Vietnamese guerrillas during the conflicts, are beneath the ground in Cu Chi. At its peak, prior to the Tet Offensive in 1968, the tunnel complex was a base to almost 10,000 troops. To this day, it remains one of the most impressive examples of how fierce the War was.
At the end of this great tour we will return to Ho Chi Minh City in the late afternoon.
