DETAILED ITINERARY
(Please note: This is a sample itinerary and can be amended to suit your exact requirements).


Day 1: Arrive Ho Chi Minh City (former Saigon )
Upon arrival, you will be met by our Tour Guide and transferred to your hotel. The rest of the day is free to explore this dynamic city.

Day 2: Saigon – Cao Dai Temples & Cu Chi Tunnels (B, L)
We start our day with a visit to the legendary Cu Chi Tunnels. This extreme 3-level underground system is in total, about 250 km stretching from Saigon suburb to the Cambodian border and was home to Vietcong guerillas for 10 years of the last brutal war. Today the remaining tunnels have become a major tourist attraction giving the visitor a unique experience and a feel of what underground life was like during that difficult time.

Tay Ninh, near the Cambodian border, is home to the unique Cao Dai sect, whose patron saints include Joan of Arc, Victor Hugo and Winston Churchill to name a few. The religion is an odd mix of Buddhism, Taoism, Confucianism and Christianity. The trip to Cao Dai Holy See in Tay Ninh is scheduled after our exploration of Cu Chi tunnel, allowing us to experience the grand mid-day service. Return to Saigon in the evening.
Overnight in Saigon

We then continue to the War Remnants Museum: This is a poignant display of the futility of war, the Notre Dame Cathedral and General Post Office: Built between 1877 and 1883 this is one of the best examples of classical French colonial architecture.
