Full-day private tour of Saigon. Begin with a visit to the historic center, strolling along Dong Khoi Street, the main shopping thoroughfare and heart of old colonial Saigon. Pass by classic European-style landmarks such as the ornate City Hall, the old Opera House, neo-Romanesque Notre Dame Cathedral, and the Central Post Office. Tour the Reunification Palace, followed by a visit to the War Remnants Museum, and then the Emperor of Jade Pagoda. In the afternoon explore bustling Cholon (Chinatown), with visits to Binh Tay Market, Thien Hau Pagoda, and Ben Thanh Market. Overnight at the hotel.
Depart this morning for an excursion to the lush Mekong Delta region. Travel to Ben Luc and Tan An, and take a boat trip on the Mekong River to Ben Tre, where local handicrafts and sweets derived from coconut are produced. Enjoy fresh seasonal fruits, a performance of traditional songs, and observe the local life. Take a short ride on a horse carriage to a typical local house to taste some homemade honey-tea. Afterwards proceed by a small sampan boat through the canals to see daily life unfold along the riverbanks. Proceed to Can Tho and your hotel. After checking into your hotel, rest of the day free for passengers to do whatever they want at their own expense.
Set out early this morning by boat to explore Cai Rang Floating Market, the biggest and most bustling in the Mekong Delta, which attracts fruit and vegetable vendors from all over the region. Buyers on smaller boats weave between large barges selling wholesale produce, and each vendor advertises fresh samples of their wares on long poles overhead their colorful boats. Once the activity has died down explore some backwaters and canals before returning to the pier. Continue by road back to Saigon. After checking into your hotel, rest of the day free for passengers to do whatever they want at their own expense.
The Great Holy See Temple, built in 1926, is considered one of the most striking structures in all of South-East Asia. It is the headquarters of the unique Cao Dai sect, a religion with a hybrid of Buddhism, Christianity & Confucianism. Above the entrance is the all-seeing holy eye – symbol of the sect.
Visitors will attend the midday ceremony’s extravaganza to witness the daily mass held by the Cao Dai followers which is a fantastic experience.
After lunch, proceed to Cu Chi tunnel to explore the amazing site where Viet Cong hid during the War. It is now a popular spot for both Vietnamese & foreign tourists – the network of over 200km of tunnels became legendary when they played a vital role in the War. In their heyday, the tunnels were functioning underground cities including numerous trap doors, specially constructed living areas, storage facilities, weapons factories, field hospitals, command centers & kitchens. There is plenty of evidence of the fierce battle that took place here during the 1960s when Cu Chi was a “Free Target Zone”. Visitors can watch a short introductory video showing how the tunnels were constructed before entering the tunnels. Spend the next hour exploring the tunnels. Afterwards, enjoy tea, cassava (guerrilla’s food in war time).
Continue by road back to Saigon. After checking into your hotel, rest of the day free for passengers to do whatever they want at their own expense.
