I had heard of websites like Inspitrip, sites that connected travelers to local hosts or guides. Tourists can live local experiences that go beyond the usual tours of travel agencies, such as enjoying a home-cooked Vietnamese meal at someone's house or going from bar to bar in Saigon with the locals. With more and more people looking for authentic local experiences, these peer-to-peer websites have been gaining ground in recent years. In addition, the Cai Rang floating market is an absolutely spectacular place to try traditional Vietnamese food, such as Banh Mi, Hu Tieu, etc.
This is because there are several floating restaurants here, with chefs with 30 to 40 years of experience who are always ready to serve the most delicious dishes. Located about 60 kilometers northwest of Ho Chi Minh City, the initial construction of the Cu Chi Tunnels is said to have begun in 1948 by Viet Minh soldiers in the resistance against the French. During periods of war, these tunnels served as the only and comprehensive means of communication between places and places, the only “peaceful places” for hospitals, schools, and kitchens. Practically all the daily activities of soldiers and residents took place here.
What is even more surprising is that Vietnamese sabotage teams and agents also used these locations as an unpredictable way to infiltrate Saigon during wartime, which undoubtedly contributed to the victory of the Vietnamese. Make your trip to Vietnam an exceptional moment in life by completing your stay with authentic experiences that will add a special touch to your trip and give it a whole new meaning.
