Day 2: Ho Chi Minh city tour (Breakfast, Lunch) (+ Guide)
Start your day visiting two iconic architectural landmarks the Notre Dame Cathedral and the Central Post Office built between 1877 and 1883 by renowned designer Gustav Eiffel. The cathedral still remains an active church with services each day and is favoured backdrop for Vietnamese wedding photographs.

From the cathedral, take a short stroll along Dong Khoi Street to the Opera House. From a bomb shelter to housing the parliamentary Lower House, the Opera House has had an interesting history. Restored in 1995 the Opera House has returned to its roots and is once again a theatre.

Next, visit the Reunification Palace, once a symbol of the South Vietnamese Government. It was here on 30 April 1975, that the war ended when a North Vietnamese Army tank crashed through its gates. See the war room, the banquet hall and the presidential office with the unusual gifts which have been received. In the afternoon continue on to the War Remnants Museum. Here, your guide will tell the story of the city’s darkest and most tragic hours during the Vietnam War. The museum contains displays of military aircraft, weaponry and many photographs – some that are quite graphic in nature.

Head to Cholon the city’s Chinatown and Thien Hau Pagoda which is dedicated to the Goddess of the Sea. With intricate friezes, carved tableaus and impressive incense coils make for some great photos. Then observe street life with a walking through the narrow streets to Binh Tay market that sells everything from hats to dried squid!

Day 3: Ho Chi Minh - Cu Chi tunnels & Vespa tour (Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner with street foods) (+ Guide)
09:00    An extremely complex tunnel system, the Cu Chi network covers a wide area of countryside near to Ho Chi Minh city and was an excellent way for the Viet Kong to move undetected by American forces underground. This evocative day tour explores the struggle of everyday life during the Vietnam War from a local perspective and takes you deep underground to explore the tunnels.

The Cu Chi tour starts with an introductory video detailing its long 25-year construction. Then it is time to go underground in the infamous 120-mile Cu Chi tunnel system which offered a safe haven for soldiers and thousands of Vietnamese people during the Vietnam War. It is virtually an underground city with dwelling houses, schools, hospitals and factories.

On display are booby traps, the remains of a US army tank and huge craters left by American B52 bombs. You will be able to admire lots of compelling photos and personal effects left behind.

There is also the chance to play real war games firing an authentic AK rifle used during the war.

After Cu Chi tunnels tour, drive back to your hotel and arrive at your hotel at around 14:00.

18:00    Part night excursion, part street food adventure. Experience Saigon nightlife the way locals do, all from the back of a vintage Vespa scooter (organized by http://vespaadventures.com/product/a-o-show-saigon-night-tour/)    

To start off this Saigon night tour, enjoy drinks at our Vespa themed café, Café Zoom, to watch “as the world goes by” (as said in the Lonely Planet guide book). Throughout the night, try a variety of food and drinks at local restaurants and samplings of Saigon’s best authentic street food. You’ll be also going to a Vietnamese-style coffee shop with special live music, and then wrap up the evening at an exciting live music bar where the new generation of Vietnamese unwind and flaunt their unique styles.

Guests ride pillion behind Vespa drivers to enjoy and experience the Vietnamese night life with friends. This tour includes free flowing drinks and street foods, so come with an appetite.

Then, enjoy À Ố Show combining exciting elements such as bamboo cirque, acrobatics, contemporary dance, and theatrical visual arts. This marvelous show is performed at the Saigon Opera House and is a must-do while visiting Saigon.
