I did the Chu chi tunnels with a small group of people which made the tour more personal. The guide took us through the tunnel system which was very small and cramp but gave you a feel of what conditions they lived in! Hard work if you are a bigger build. Our guide had a lot of knowledge and explained the different traps and weapons used. Overall a great morning!

Cai Rang Floating Market is very interesting place to know about the culture in the Southern Vietnam. There are too many goods being traded here, mainly is fruit. It is reflecting the previous mean of transportation on river and keep maintaining up to now. So, you will know more interesting thing when visit here.

An early morning tour of this market is well worth it to see the culture and how the people in this area live. Have Pho for breakfast here on the river. A visit to the land market makes the experience even better. I thought the floating market might have been bigger, but still well worth a look.
