Highlights

Saigon is a city full of contrasts as street vendors selling fruit and vegetables can be seen next to modern businesses and boutiques. In 1859 the city was captured by the French and from 1956 until its demise in April 1975, it was the capital of the US-backed Republic of Vietnam. Saigon’s history is only 300 years old but today, renamed Ho Chi Minh City at the end of the American war, is very much the heart of Vietnamese business. However, the city still retains its connections to the past, particularly in Cholon, Saigon’s Chinatown. Evidence of the French occupation can still be seen in the architecture of many of the buildings such as the Notre Dame Cathedral and the Central Post Office. The

Cu Chi Tunnels complex, 70 km from Ho Chi Minh City, is a must see. The incredible tunnel system, covering nearly 250km is an amazing feat of engineering and it provided shelter to over 16,000 communist guerrillas during the American war. Visitors are able to crawl around in the safer parts of the tunnel system and some tunnels have now been made larger to accommodate the larger size of Western visitors. Low-power lights have been installed in several of the tunnels to make traveling through them easier. Underground conference rooms, where campaigns such as the Tet Offensive were planned in 1968, have been restored and visitors may enjoy a simple meal of food that Viet Cong fighters would have eaten.
