Hanoi, Vietnam, November 13, 2013 - The new way to visit the tunnels is very convenient, taking just 1 hour and 15 minutes to get from Ho Chi Minh City, with NO traffic jams! Saigon’s based daytrippers can admire the perspective of the HCMC skyline as they cruise upstream on the new yacht.
“Many travelers go by road to Cu Chi, but you will take a half day excursion by waterway to the famous tunnels, which stretched for over 200 km and became legendary during the 1960s when they played a vital part in the American War.” Says Pham Ha, Founder and CEO of Luxury Travel Ltd.
“Your adventure starts from Bach Dang Pier, and you will go on a scenic tour to discover the natural beauty and Vietnamese lifestyle along the river bank. Binh Duong Province is on the right hand side and Ho Chi Minh City on the left as you begin cruising through the frontier and you willed be amazed that just a few minutes from Bustling Saigon, there lies a peaceful countryside and amazing life in the world of water.”
The boat will continue to Cu Chi (Ben Dinh) which now is a popular spot for both Vietnamese and foreign tourists. Take a short walk to the “iron triangle” of Cu Chi. Travelers will have plenty of time to explore the tunnel system and watch a video about them, which includes commentary from former soldiers to help travelers better understand the history of the area.
In their heyday, the tunnels were a functioning underground city, including numerous trap doors, specially constructed living areas, storage facilities, weapons factories, field hospitals, command centers & kitchens. After an hour and a half visiting the tunnels, travelers will go on boat back to Saigon where the tour ends.
Tour price start at 98 USD for the private party of 6 people, including private pick up and drop off services, entrances fees, water, fruits, boat trip and English speaking tour guide. Tour departs daily from 8 am or 1 pm for afternoon option. Discover more at www.luxurytravelvietnam.com
