Family Day in Saigon

Your jam-packed tour starts at 08:00am with a quick transfer to the Saigon river jetty to board a speedboat for a 90-minute journey to the Cu Chi Tunnels. You’ll quickly leave the city behind as you head through rural scenery to the vast underground network of tunnels constructed by the Viet Cong. Kids can enter the tunnels which have been widened allowing easy access. After exploring the tunnels you’ll return back to Saigon by speedboat for lunch at a local restaurant.

In the afternoon, hop onboard a cyclo for a short ride through downtown before transferring by car to a local home. Here you’ll be treated to a special musical performance in a Truc Mai House, which belongs to a couple of Vietnam’s most accomplished exponents of traditional Vietnamese music. At the end of the performance, you’re welcome to try and master these ingenious, handmade instruments yourself. Following the performance you'll return to your hotel.
