Day trips & Excursions, departure from Sai Gon

Program 1 : Sai Gon City Tour/ 1 Day
(Trip of 1 day in Saigon)

Morning private city touring of Saigon. Saigon is the largest and busiest city in Vietnam with a population of 8 million people. Much of the daily life takes place on the streets, which are lined with shops, stalls and vendors with their wares spread out on the footpath. The full day city tour will take you around the city, from downtown Saigon to Chinatown, in order to get a general view of a developing city. See places of interests such as Notre Dame Cathedral, The Central Post Office, Reunification Hall and the history museum. Visit the Jade Emperor Pagoda and the bustling Chinese district and then get ready for shopping at the bustling Ben Thanh market.
Lunch at local restaurant. End of service.

Notre Dame Cathedral is one of the landmarks among the impressive avenues and open spaces north of Dong Khoi. The huge red-brick edifice with twin spires is placed between two streams of traffic and is a clear reminder that the French once ruled this city. Inside, the decor is relatively austere, but the church gets very full and very lively during services. This peaceful place is perfect for quiet contemplation. Sunday Mass is held at 9.30am.

Old Saigon Post Office is the largest of Vietnam's post offices; it was built from 1886 to 1891 by the great architect Gustave Eiffel. The same architect who gave his name to the Eiffel tower in Paris. The post office is large, open, and with a big picture of Ho Chi Minh overlooking the proceedings. This unique place will remind you of being in a train station.

The former Presidential Palace is now renamed the Reunification Hall. It is one of the most interesting places to visit in Ho Chi Minh City. This building remains almost exactly as it was on the morning of 30th April 1975 when the Saigon regime surrendered to the victorious liberation forces and the country was reunified for the first time since 1945. Included on the tour are visits to conference rooms, the Presidential Receiving Room, basement tunnels and war room, telecommunications center and the residential area of the former president.

Program 3 : Cao Dai Temples & Cu Chi Tunnels
(Trip of 1 days from Saigon)

SAIGON– TAY NINH- CU CHI- SAI GON (100km/ 2h by road)
8 Am. Pick-up at the hotel; this morning we drive to Cao Dai Temples in Tay. Tay Ninh, near the Cambodian border, is home to the unique Cao Dai sect, whose patron saints include Jane d’Arc, Victor Hugo and Winston Churchill to name a few. The religion is a hybrid of Buddhism, Taoism, Confucianism and Christianity. The Cao Dai Temple at Tay Ninh has been described as a Walt Disney fantasia of the East. The temple's exterior is decorated with multi-colored dragons of all shapes and sizes competing for space with a number of religious symbols. Above the main entrance is the all-seeing holy eye, the symbol of the Cao Dai sect. The interior is just as engaging as statues of Jesus Christ, Buddha and the Hindu god, Brahma, stand side by side. Lunch at local restaurant.

The trip to Tay Ninh is combined with a visit to the Cu Chi Tunnels. The tunnels were part of an underground network that was built by the Vietcong during the American War. It reached from the southern tip of the Ho Chi Minh trail near the Cambodian border to the Saigon River. You will have the opportunity to creep into a tunnel to experience how the Vietcong lived and fought during this time. Return to Saigon. End of service.
