DescriptionWelcome to Ho Chi Minh City, formerly known as Saigon. With a guide accompanying you directly off the cruise ship pier you will make your way into the most populous metropolitan area in Vietnam. Ho Chi Minh City has everything from historic Pagodas to stunning skyscrapers making it one of the most intriguing destinations in all of Vietnam. Choose between three tours offered in Ho Chi Minh City for cruise ship passengers. Private Ho Chi Minh City Tour: Dive into the depths of Vietnamese history as you make your way to the Reunification Palace, which stands as the site where the Vietnam war ended. Make sure you bring your camera to capture the North Vietnamese tanks that crashed through the palaces gates back in 1975 and still serve as a reminder today. Once inside you will be able to explore the many rooms that appear to be untouched creating an atmosphere hard to find at other monuments. Make sure to take a look in the war command room which is littered with campaign maps and old communication equipment. Your panoramic city tour continues with photo stops at the Notre Dame Cathedral and the Central Post Office. The historic cathedral is located at a picturesque corner in downtown Ho Chi Minh city and will leave you standing in amazement at its unique French Colonial design. Private Cu Chi Tunnels Tour: There isn't a better place to have an in-depth reflection on the Vietnam war than the Cu Chi Tunnels. Considered the most famous battlegrounds in the country, these tunnels represent the core of the guerrilla combat style used by the Viet Cong throughout the war. Serving as communication routes, food and weapon storage facilities, living quarters and hospitals, the Cu Chi Tunnels embody the lifeline of this region's Viet Cong. The tunnels still remain as a reminder of the traumatic past of this area. Private Mekong Delta Tour: The Mekong Delta lies immediately to the west of Ho Chi Minh City. It is also called the rice bowl of Vietnam as it pumps out more than a third of the country's annual food crop from just ten percent of its total land mass. The Delta region displays a variety of physical landscape, from vast paddy files in the south to hills in the north and west. It's a water world where boats, houses, and markets float upon the numerous rivers, canals, and streams that crisscross the landscape like arteries.
