Departure to reach the famous Cu Chi tunnels, the Vietcong's underground network of warehouses, dormitories, armories, kitchens, infirmaries and command posts resistant to US bombardments and symbol of Vietnamese resistance. In the nearby bushes some structures are made accessible to the public and evocative mannequins mount the guard at strategic points.
Lunch in a typical restaurant.
In the afternoon we visit the heart of Saigon, starting from the War Remnants Museum, sad reminder of all wars in which Vietnam has been involved. After a brief stop at the central square to admire the Post Office building, designed by Gustave Eiffel, and the neo-Gothic cathedral of Notre-Dame, we visit Ngoc Hoang, the Jade Emperor's pagoda, dedicated to the Taoist cult.
