1. Highlight: Cu Chi tunnel system - full day
We discover the extraordinary and impressive tunnel system of Cu Chi, which was built during the Vietnam War.
The Vietnamese built entire cities underground on several floors.
The first floor began about 3-4 m under the ground, the second was 6 m deep, the third reached about 8-10 m deep. Sanatoriums, hospitals, offices, schools and dormitories were located in the tunnel system, which was connected with small corridors 80 cm high and 60 cm wide. The sophisticated system withstood several flooding, poison gas and bomb attacks, among other things.
We have lunch together and in the afternoon we drive back to Ho Chi Minh City.
2. Highlight: War Remnants Museum, French Post & Notre-Dame Cathedral
In the wake of the Vietnam War, this museum was opened in 1975 to give visitors the tragic events from the perspective of the locals. Documents, photos, videos, machines and weapons illustrate the cruel everyday life of that time.
After that we will see the beautiful French Notre-Dame Cathedral and the French Post Office designed by Gustave Eiffel. You get the opportunity to imagine life in Vietnam during the colonial times of the Indochinese Empire.
Dinner and overnight in Ho Chi Minh City
