After breakfast, we will set out to the Cu Chi Tunnels, which is an important underground base in Vietnam during the war time, stretching windingly for 200 kilometers (125 miles).

You can walk through the tunnels and experience the hardship of people in those years.

In the afternoon, we will head to the War Remnants Museum, in which the weapons, photos and documents displayed will help you understand the history of Vietnamese wars. Then, follow your guide to explore the Reunification Palace and the French-style Central Post Office.

At last, you will be taken to Ho Chi Minh City's Book Street to experience the street cultures. It's an artsy pedestrian street lined with bookstores, graffiti shops, and coffee shops. Books here cover a variety of topics in history, literature, and comics for children, in English, Vietnamese, or French. Many book lovers come here to read and relax; art exhibitions, book fairs, photography exhibitions and book launches also attract a number of visitors from time to time. Some local schools take the street as a destination for students to read and participate in various experiential activities. Thus, you and your children may chat with them when meeting.

Upon arrival, you will be greeted at the airport and then be escorted to the hotel.

★  What Makes Us Different
1. To make the trip flexible and comfortable, we arrange a private boat for you. You can start the tour on your own schedule. Many other travel agencies arrange the public shuttle boat with fixed departure time, in which case you may need to get up at 4:00 am for embarking. Considering that the liveliest and most prosperous scenes of Cai Rang Floating Market are from 7:00 to 8:00 am, we recommend that you set off at 6:00 am. Thus, you will not only be just in time for the best experience, but also enjoy the Mekong River sunrise and local people's morning life along the banks.
2. You can either talk to your guide to let the hotel prepare breakfast in advance to enjoy it on the boat trip, or have it when getting back from the tour. Please note that the breakfast time in the hotel usually ends at 10:00.
