We also visited visit Cuchi Underground Tunnel - a battle field in Vietnam War about 50 miles north of Saigon City. This was a grizzly activity and a long bus ride.
For a century the people of this region fought a guerrilla war, first against the French and then the Americans. These tunnels became famous extending 3 stories below the ground.
The complex maze of tunnels had well-camoflaged entrances
Watch were you walk as these bobby traps were common throughout this area.

Our tour group went on a "dinner cruise" on the Saigon River. We were now about 24 days into our tour of southern China, Cambodia and Vietnam and honestly, for the first time we were tired of eating. This was our very first group tour vacation and we learned that a big part of such tours is EATING. Little pot stop!
This time we just relaxed and watched the river go by.
