ITINERARY BY DAY
A Day in Ho Chi Minh City with Family (L)
Depart Ho Chi Minh City at 08:00 AM in the morning and transfer to the jetty on the Saigon River in the heart of the city, to board a speedboat for a 90-minute journey along the Saigon River to Cu Chi Tunnels. You’ll quickly leave the city far behind as the boat heads through rural scenery as we travel northwest to Cu Chi district. Arrive and start the visit of the famous Cu Chi Tunnels which consist of an incredible underground tunnel network constructed by Vietnamese resistance fighters (Viet Cong) during both the French and American wars (children can enter the tunnels which have been widened allowing easy access).
After exploring the tunnels journey back to Ho Chi Minh City by speedboat and on arrival disembark and enjoy lunch at a local restaurant.
In the afternoon indulge the kids with surprise and delight by taking a fun short cyclo ride through some of the downtown streets, before transferring by vehicle to a local home in a nearby suburb. Here enjoy a special musical performance in the intimate confines of a converted living room, known as Truc Mai House, which belongs to a couple of Vietnam’s most accomplished exponents of traditional Vietnamese music. At the end of the performance, the audience is welcome to try and master these ingenious, handmade instruments. Following the performance drive back to your hotel.
