You will visitHoi An – Ho Chi Minh City – Cu Chi - Mekong Delta

Highlights

Hoi An was a major Oriental and international trading port and merchant meeting place for the traders and ships of Japan, China and the west during the 16th and 17th centuries. As a result, the old town in Hoi An has a diverse mixture of architectural styles and today is considered a living museum of architecture and urban lifestyle. Hoi An, listed as a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1999, is also the home of two beautiful beaches where you can relax & unwind from your busy life.

HCMC previously known as 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 Republic of Vietnam. Renamed Ho Chi Minh City at the end of the American War, HCMC is very much the heart of Vietnamese business. However, the city still retains its connections to the past, particularly in Cholon, Saigon’s Chinatown and in the architecture of many of the buildings such as the Notre Dame Cathedral and the Central Post Office.

Cu Chi Tunnels are an immense network of interconnected underground tunnels located in the Cu Chi district of Ho Chi Minh City. The tunnels were used by Viet Cong guerrillas as hiding spots during combat, as well as serving as communication and supply routes. Housed in the tunnels were hospitals, food and weapon caches and living quarters for numerous guerrilla fighters.

The Mekong Delta is often referred to as the rice bowl of Vietnam as it produces three harvests per year. The fertile Mekong Delta is also famous for its tropical fruits and flowers. The Delta area marks the end of the Mekong Rivers 4,500km journey made through six countries to reach the ocean. Traditional transportation in the Delta is by boat along a vast network of canals and channels.

The Champa King lived in the political capital of Tra Kieu (whose commercial capital was the port of Hoi An) and so the My Son complex became the most important temples of the Champa Kingdom. Bricks were used to build the temples without the aid of mortar and sculptures of gods, priests, animals, and scenes of mythical battles adorned the walls. The temples were places of worship to the Hindu God Vishnu.
