Upon your arrival in Phu My port in Ba Ria – Vung Tau at 7:30am; you will be welcome by our tour guide & driver and transferred to Ho Chi Minh city and keep driving totally 3 hours for the Cu Chi tunnel, otherwise known as the “Iron Triangle” or “Iron Land” in war time. On the way we will drive through pleasant countryside; rubber plantations and rice paddies. Before entering the tunnels, we will see a short introductory video showing how they were constructed, followed by an exploration of the maze of tunnels, some of which have been widened to allow tourist access. Also on display are various mantraps and the remains of an American tank as well as numerous bomb craters made by 500lb bombs dropped by B52 bombers.
After lunch we will be in the city center and start our city tour.

We also stop to visit Notre Dame Cathedral and Old Post Office to get good shots for our memory of the big, modern city of Vietnam.
