After morning pickup at your Ho Chi Minh City hotel, travel about 20 miles (30 km) to reach Cu Chi, a district of the city most famous for the 75-mile (121-km) network of underground passages built by the Viet Cong army.

Follow your guide through this historic military site, now a war memorial park, which was once a key position for the Viet Cong during the Vietnam War (known as the American War in Vietnam). Learn how the tunnels provided shelter, supply and communication routes, medical treatment sites, and food and weapons storage. See booby traps that were built to capture intruders and dioramas that illustrate daily life in the tunnels. If you like, you can even crawl through parts of the narrow passageways.

After your time in Cu Chi, return to the city for a traditional Vietnamese lunch served at a Cyclo Resto restaurant.

Then spend the afternoon visiting Ho Chi Minh City's top sights. Start your city tour at the Reunification Palace, where in 1975, Viet Cong troops broke through the main gates and the party took control of the government, ending the long war. Inside the 1960s-style building, check out the official living quarters, meeting rooms and a military command center complete with old radio equipment and tactical maps from the war.

A short walk from the palace, your guide shows you fine examples of French Colonial architecture, including Notre Dame Cathedral, the Central Post Office, Ho Chi Minh City Hall and Ho Chi Minh Municipal Theater, also known as the Saigon Opera House.

Stroll toward the Saigon River along Dong Khoi Street and Nguyen Hue Boulevard to admire historic buildings and the ultra-modern Bitexco Tower, until recently the tallest skyscraper in Vietnam.

Wrap up your afternoon at the Ben Thanh Market — the city’s central market and one of its most colorful areas. Marvel at mounds of goods, and practice your bargaining skills if you wish to purchase any items. At the end of your tour, your guide returns you to your hotel. Waugh, what an exciting day!
