2. Mekong Delta Whole Day Trip

I wasn’t expecting much actually when I booked this trip. Even though I am staying here for almost 3 years now, its just recently that i decided to go for this trip. Well, this trip really amazed me though. Its like a time machine where we are catered and thrownback to the life of vietnamese people before. We were able to meet some minorities which really melts my heart to see them striving just to live everyday. So, yeah, sorry for the drama. I suggest you’ll book in The Sinh Tourist. they really have a good service and very accomodating staffs.

5. Cu Chi Tunnel Half Day Tour

So, Because my Friends and I had “Time Issues”( we need to maximize our time) we choose to book a half day tour instead of booking a one whole day. So yea, Cu Chi Tunnel is one of the most visited tourist attraction here in Ho Chi Minh. At first I was hesitated to go with them because i thought the only thing to do is to crawl down to that very small and creepy tunnel ( sorry for the word xd) but i was wrong. They have so much activity to offer such as museum and huts where Viet Cong’s hid during the Vietnam war. The tunnels were used by Viet Cong soldiers as hiding spots during combat, as well as serving as communication and supply routes, hospitals, food and weapon caches and living quarters for numerous North Vietnamese fighters.

Cu Chi Tunnel is located in the Củ Chi district of Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon), Vietnam
