- The War Remnants Museum in Ho Chi Minh City was first open to the public in 1975, and by that time, it was called the “Museum of American War Crimes.” Established as a shocking reminder of the fierce and brutal Vietnam War, the museum has displayed American military equipment and graphic photographs of the war. Going through the gate, you will see weapons and equipment American troops used to fight against the Vietnamese between 1945 and 1975. There is a helicopter with rocket launchers, a fighter plane, a tank, and a single-seater attack aircraft. Interestingly, a conventional bomb 6800 kg in weight will stun any visitor.
- Reunification Palace was once the former resident and office of Vietnamese General Ngo Dinh Diem. What made it famous in the global history in 1975 was that a tank of the North Vietnamese Army hit through its main gate as a mark of ending the Vietnam War. Today, it is open to the public and become one of the deserving tourist attractions in Ho Chi Minh City.
- Notre Dame Cathedral, erected between 1863 and 1880 by the French colonist lies right in the heart of Ho Chi Minh City. It is possible to state that the cathedral is emerging among the architectural marvels of the city. One exciting thing of the structure is that the materials used to design and build it were imported directly from France, so you will realize that it looks very special from the outside.
- Saigon Central Post Office is believed to be the grandest post office in Southeast Asia, and it is where to look back to the French colonial times in Vietnam. Visitors to this post office take a chance to admire its unique architecture, antiqued telephone boxes and other old items. Not only that, but they will also learn more about the important role of this place in the time before email and phones are used popularly as today.
- Depart the City for Cu Chi Tunnels, just 60 kilometers. Cu Chi is now considered a heroic district for its role in the anti-American war in Vietnam. It is legendary for its 220 kilometer-long tunnel system and is a popular spot for both Vietnamese and foreigners to visit.
- The peacefully rural rice paddy scenery is home to ducks and water buffalos swimming in the rivers along the side of road. You will find it hard to imagine the destruction and damage all over the area caused by bombing and mines when Cu Chi was a "Free Target Zone." The remnants in Cu Chi are evidence of the fierce battle that took place. You will even have chance to fire an AK-47.
- At the end of the tour, the bus will take you back to Ho Chi Minh City.
