South Vietnam Getaway Itinerary
Day 1 Explore Ho Chi Minh City
Dive into the streets of Ho Chi Minh City on a fascinating walking tour through Chinatown, exploring markets and then watching life rush by over coffee. Slurp up a bowl of traditional pho for lunch before seeing some of Ho Chi Minh City's iconic buildings and witnessing the tragedies of war at the War Remnants Museum.
Day 2 Cao Dai Temple/Cu Chi Tunnels
Leave the city behind and be welcomed into the home of a local family for lunch. Arrive at the Cao Dai Temple in time for their noon ceremony and get an insight into this fascinating religion, which is a blend of the world's major religions. Travel further through southern Vietnam's countryside to the underground tunnel complex of Cu Chi. Explore the fascinating array of structures and marvel at the ingenuity of the locals who built them - an incredible testament to human survival. Return to Ho Chi Minh City, perhaps sharing a meal in one of the hundreds of nearby restaurants.
Day 3 Mekong Delta Homestay
Journey to My Tho, a port city and the gateway to the Mekong Delta. Jump onboard a private boat and cruise the river, visiting a local fish farm and tropical fruit gardens. Get an insight into the local way of life as row boats take us deeper into the canals, stopping at a riverside restaurant for a traditional lunch. Further explore the region's waterways before arriving at our homestay for the evening.
