Excursion to the Cu Chi Tunnels: Cu Chi used to be a bitter battleground for many years during the Vietnam War. Visitors cannot miss a visit to this “underground village”, an intricate network
of over 200km-long tunnels at Ben Duoc, 75km from Ho Chi Minh City. Try a very short segment of this labyrinth of interlaced tunnels and you will find it incredible. In the afternoon you visit the biggest traditional medicine markets in the south, retail and wholesale: Binh Tay market in Chinatown. All kinds of traditional medicines can be found here, from herbal to animal  products. You might view, smell and touch some exotic medicines for the first time in your life. The tour continues with the Fito Museum, the first museum dedicated to traditional medicine in Vietnam, with collections of items relevant to traditional Vietnamese medicine, implements used to prepare the medicine, and tools used in a traditional pharmacy, as well as books and
documents. The tour ends with a massage by the blind massage therapist to soothe your muscles and relieve any pain and stress.

Take your private transfer to Mekong Delta in the early morning to embark the Mekong Eyes in Cai Be or Can Tho (depending on the day. Tours start in Cai Be on even dates and in Can Tho
on odd dates). You board your comfortable wooden river cruise vessel around noon. After a refreshing welcome drink, the boat starts cruising. Sit back and watch the fantastic scenery and
the daily life of the Mekong people. In the afternoon you can disembark for a guided leisurely stroll through a village and the surrounding fruit orchards or rice fields. Meet the friendly locals
and taste the local produce and fruits. Get back on board and enjoy a drink at the bar or relax on deck as the sun sets over the magnificent water landscape of the Mekong River. The cruise boat will anchor for the night. The day ends with a delicious on-board dinner. You stay overnight on board your floating hotel in the Mekong Delta.
(B, L, D) Overnight on Board

Wake up well rested to the sound of the river and get ready for another exciting day of sightseeing in the Mekong Delta. At 6.30h the cruise vessel sets off for a sunrise cruise. Watch the locals go about their daily work drying exotic fruits and building ships on the wooden yards while enjoying an early breakfast. After breakfast, you will board a sampan boat to Cai Be or Cai Rang floating market, the region’s busiest and most lively markets. Marvel at the sheer abundance of exotic fruits, vegetables and skillfully handcrafted regional products. You will pull up to the boats for talking and bargaining with the merchants. You will also visit some of the local candy and cake making factories or boat through the green water landscape to see local houses, verdant orchards and shipbuilding yards. Disembark the Mekong Eyes after brunch and return to Saigon by private transfer.
