Event description

Description

The Vietnam War (which the Vietnamese refer to as the American War) greatly impacted the country and is one of the main things travelers wish to learn about while visiting Saigon. Learning about the past and seeing how the war is portrayed by the Vietnamese can help you gain further insight as to how brutal the war actually was, as it devastated both the country and the people who resided here.

The experience consists of top attractions and hidden gems around the city, with different historic relics found along the way, including the Cu Chi Tunnels, War Remnants Museum, Thich Quang Duc Monk Memorial statue, and the last helicopter building. A trip guided by one of our local insiders allows you to explore historical sites up close and personal, all the while getting the chance to listen to real stories and understand the damage the Vietnam War caused.

Sample Itinerary

Below is a sample itinerary that we have created that you can reference for a few ideas when creating your own. Creating your own itinerary really depends on your preferences and the local insiders’ recommendations, meaning you can personalise the trip 100%.

An 8-hour experience starts early in the morning:

  • Meet up in District 1 or be picked up from your hotel by your guide.
  • Go to the Cu Chi Tunnels.
  • Visit Ben Duoc or Ben Dinh of Cu Chi tunnels and explore the underground network and try gun fighting.
  • Enjoy authentic, local food at Hoang Cam Kitchen or any nearby restaurants.
  • Visit War Remnants Museum, Thich Quang Duc Monk Memorial, and the Last Helicopter building.

Cu Chi tunnels and War Remnants Museum are very lively and populated areas, where you can visit the top attractions as well as feel the local vibe. Activity level is moderate as you will walk a lot. Explore some other most neglected war sites and include in your the itinerary if you wish to!

  • Bring water to stay hydrated; you will be walking a lot.
  • Keep your personal belonging close, wear comfortable clothing and shoes, and do not forget to wear sunscreen.
