Trip note
Guests should note that this is a cultural tour; therefore there will be visits to various places of worship, which may require respectful dress and behavior. Female visitors must often wear clothes covering much of their skin – and nothing too revealing.

As this tour covers the whole country, you should take note that the north of Vietnam can be colder in the winter. Therefore, if visiting late or early in the year, you should bring a varied style of clothing, as the south has a more Tropical Climate. As some of the activities involve climbing stairs / Hiking, guests should also bring walking shoes/boots.

Walking through the Cu Chi Tunnels one can be hot and moist in the summer; therefore bringing a change of clothes is advised for this day trip.

Attention:
The itinerary may be subject to change due to the unfavorable weather conditions
