Our last day in Saigon and we got our money's worth having Mr. Binh, a war veteran and half filipino as our tour guide. He shared with us his knowledge about the war and the other side of the story, the American version. I have no idea of what happened during the American - Vietnam war, this trip was very educational.
it's a 2 hour bus ride to Cu Chi Tunnels which i think is almost close to the border of Cambodia, we booked the tour from our hotel for $6 (Half day), we get to crawl and chicken out for the first 5 mins of the cu chi tunnel experience :) thank god they have like emergency exits along the way haha :) but the experience overall was superb! Mr. Binh is like a rockstar of all tour guides, he explained everything in a concise way that we can get it, he told us what he really knows, not by the book but the strategies they really used. it was a plus that he was very entertaining and honest, which makes this trip more memorable.
