Day 2 Saigon - Cu Chi Tunnels - City Tour

This morning we will travel for about 70km to the northwest of Saigon for a half-day tour of Cu Chi Tunnels - a vast underground defending system of Viet Cong during Vietnam War, which housed up to 10,000 people.

Day 4 Can Tho - Cai Rang Floating Market - Saigon

Wake up early this morning and head to the famous Cai Rang floating market - a maze of hundreds of boats sailing around selling foods and products. This floating market is very different from the local markets you may see in other provinces of Vietnam - buyers can easily find the boat selling their desired products from a far distance as the boat owners will hang their items on long, vertical poles.
As we leave the floating market, we continue our boat ride to the local fruit orchards and enjoy fresh, delicious tropical fruits. Then we will visit local villages, passing along peaceful paths to visit traditional houses, observing the daily lives of local people and listening to them speak about their traditions. Drive back to Saigon and have lunch en route to conclude this Vietnam countryside tour.
