Vibrant, energetic, crazy & chaotic, Saigon is a buzzing metropolis of hi-octane traffic, teeming markets & ancient pagodas. A city where crossing the road is an art form & people watching a main attraction; Saigon is an experience like no other.
Start your Adventure with a group welcome dinner followed by a night tour of bustling backpacker district Pham Ngu Lao. Then end (or begin) your night with a few drinks as we explore the endless number of bars & nightclubs that fill this backpacker haven.
The following morning your Adventure Leader will take you on a tour of the Cu Chi Tunnels; an immense network of underground passageways used to combat enemy forces during the Vietnam War. A local guide will describe how the tunnels were used as a base of operations, supply route & even a hospital. Those who dare can squeeze their way through a small part of the tunnels to catch a real glimpse of life inside this underground maze.
Then, checkout some of the gruesome homemade traps used by the Vietcong to snare & dismember enemies during the war. Finally, you can test your shooting ability with a variety of Vietnam War era weapons at the local shooting range. With supervision, of course!
Use your free day wisely and visit the War Remnants Museum, wander through Bến Thanh Market or taking a cyclo tour of the city. You have the option to spend a day exploring on your own or join your Adventure Leader as he/she traverses the main hotspots of Saigon City.
