The Cathedral was built between 1863 and 1880 with materials imported from France, it is also referred to as Basilica of Our Lady of The Immaculate Conception. We will then continue to visit the War Remains Museum, where the Vietnam War crimes are displayed. This is the most popular museum in Vietnam with approximately half a million visits annually.

After lunch we will visit Cu Chi Tunnels. Cu Chi is a network of more than 120 km under the ground and were built by the sweat and blood of Vietnamese guerrillas to hide and fight against the rival forces. You will be introduced to many kinds of booby traps used during the Vietnam War. We will take time to explain the methods of creating, maintaining and living in these tunnels as well as the special technique of hiding smoke, invented by the guerrillas. The visit also includes visiting different types of underground halls and secret meeting rooms. You will spend an hour experiencing the tunnels with a guide. Afterwards, enjoy tea and cassava (guerrilla’s food during the war). Before finishing the tour, you can watch a short (15 minutes) documentary about the tunnel. Return to Ho Chi Minh City.

Proceed to Tortoise islet, where we will have lunch in the orchard garden. We will then take a boat ride to An Khanh in Ben Tre to visit a family business which epitomizes the idyllic rural lifestyle. Taste the delicious coconut candy & observe the pastoral life as you roam through the fruit plantation and village.
