Full description
Following pickup from you hotel in District 1, you will head to the Cu Chi Province. You will travel past the Tan Binh District before arriving to Cu Chi, with a rest stop at a lacquer factory included along the way. The factory is a workplace of disabled people who were victims of Agent Orange Toxic used during the war. Whilst there you can see how they work and witness the beauty of the final products created by them. You will also have the opportunity to purchase their products to help them sustain themselves.

Following the factory you will reach the Ben Duoc Tunnels. The tunnels' system is so complex that it stunned many military advisors from all over the world. It is a hidden gem which is today mainly used for educational purposes for Vietnamese students and foreigners alike.
