3 days in Saigon – Ho Chi Minh City – 2013; Day 2 – Cuchi Tunnels

Our first day in Saigon was looking around the city,  ensuring we had a French meal, and organising the following three days.  We took the lazy way, and booked the tours for the second and third days, and the bus tickets to Phnom Phenh for the following day.

The second day we had booked a tour to the Cuchi Tunnels – it cost VND 470,000 for two for a half day, with  no lunch.  They picked us up from the hotel on time, the guide was fun and entertaining, the driver seemed to be good, and everything was well organised.  This was a good tour.
