BIKING & CRUISING full day - SAIGON RIVER & CU CHI TUNNELS
Brief Itinerary:(One hour cruising and 25km cycling)(B,L)
The Cu Chi region was pivotal in the defeat of the US during the Vietnamese war. Almost completely devastated by continual bombing and napalming overland, many Viet Cong still survived by digging and hiding in underground tunnel networks. On this one-day tour, we’ll visit the vast underground network of tunnels and enjoy some boating and biking along the way.
In the morning, we’ll retrieve you from your hotel and head to the Saigon river pier. There, we’ll enjoy a simple breakfast before cruising on the green banks and quiet waterways to the Cuchi tunnels. The boat will go around Thanh Da Islet and will cross Binh Quoi Village area, both of which are great for sightseeing and photos along the way. We’ll stop to admire and tour the Cuchi Tunnels before hopping on our bikes for a ride along the Vietnamese countryside. We’ll ride past rubber plantations and rice fields, stopping occasionally to see locals at work making either rice paper or rice wine in traditional settings. In the late afternoon, we’ll transfer back to Ho Chi Minh City to end the trip.
