Củ Chi tunnels
The tunnels of Củ Chi are an immense network of connecting underground tunnels located in the Củ Chi district of Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon), Vietnam, and are part of a much larger network of tunnels that underlie much of the country. The Củ Chi tunnels were the location of several military campaigns during the Vietnam War, and were the Viet Cong's base of operations for the Tết Offensive in 1968.
The tunnels were used by Viet Cong soldiers as hiding spots during combat, as well as serving as communication and supply routes, hospitals, food and weapon caches and living quarters for numerous North Vietnamese fighters. The tunnel systems were of great importance to the Viet Cong in their resistance to American forces, and helped to counter the growing American military effort.
Municipal Theatre, Ho Chi Minh City
The Municipal Theatre is a smaller counterpart of the Hanoi Opera House, which was built between 1901 and 1911, and shaped like the Opéra Garnier in Paris. The Municipal Theatre owes its specific characteristics to the work of architect Félix Olivier, while construction was under supervision of architects Ernest Guichard and Eugène Ferret in 1900.

Relax at Spa
We will start our trip at the best massage house in Ho Chi Minh City, where you can choose either full-body or foot massage. I have been getting massages from many countries, including Hong Kong, Thailand, and Indonesia, but this is the best place by far.
Crescent Lake and Starlight Bridge
The Anh Sao (Starlight) Bridge is located in the heart of the international commercial and financial district of Phu My Hung. The first modern pedestrian bridge of Vietnam, it cost VND50 billion (about US$2.5 million) to construct and was officially inaugurated in April 2010.
While many stop by to enjoy the beautiful scenery, others want to experience the splendour of a 170m-long walk amongst the LED-lit stars (simulated by the lights on the ground).
The solar powered lights collect energy during the day using specially designed battery panels located on the sides of the bridge.
The bridge, with its illuminated path and waterfalls, is a scenic feature drawing a lot of visitors.
Nuzzled along a beautiful river promenade with a fresh cool breeze flowing all the time, Anh Sao Bridgeis an architectural symphony which perfectly harmonizes with the natural setting to create an ideal destination for local residents and visitors to enjoy.
It's a wonderful place for walking and relaxation
