Following a tour of the Reunification Palace (formerly the Presidential Palace) and the War Remnants Museum, stop for lunch at a 'pho' restaurant for a delicious bowl of the noodle soup that Vietnam is famous for. We then travel to the Cu Chi tunnels located in an area known during the Vietnam War as the 'Iron Triangle' on account of the strength of its communist insurgency. The Cu Chi tunnel network was established as a means of waging guerrilla war against superior French and later American fire power. The network stretches over 250km and extends to three levels underground providing a remarkable insight into the method and determination of communist forces during the Vietnam War.
