Day 2: Cu Chi Tunnels, HCMC sightseeing (Meals: B,L)

This morning we set off on a busy day of sightseeing, with our frst stop being a village known for making rice paper. From here we continue on to the famous Cu Chi Tunnels, a twisting network of narrow underground tunnels and rooms that the Viet Cong used as its military base and living quarters during the Vietnam War. We’ll learn about the Viet Cong’s life underground as well as being able to explore the network of tunnels by foot. 

We’ll then drive back to HCMC for the afternoon, taking in some of the city’s most important sights. We begin with the Reunifcation Palace, an outstanding example of 1960s architecture that is steeped in modern history. It was here that the Vietnam War ended in 1975, when the city of Saigon fell after a North Vietnamese army tank crashed through the palace gates, from which point the city was to be known as Ho Chi Minh City. 

From here we visit some of the city’s major landmarks: the Notre Dame Cathedral, an imposing neo-Romanesque Catholic cathedral built in the late 19th century; and the Saigon Post Offce, a classic French colonial building bearing a giant portrait of ‘Uncle Ho’ and many grand architectural details. 

Our fnal visit of the day is to the Ben Thanh Market, an enormous sprawling covered marketplace that is packed to the gills with everything from fresh fruits, vegetables, seafood and sweets; to suitcases, clothing and white goods; to traditional lacquer ware, handicrafts and kitschy tourist trinkets. Bargaining is key here, but even if you’re not shopping, it’s a dazzling spectacle to photograph. 
Overnight in Ho Chi Minh City.
