The tour will commence at around 8am from your hotel in Saigon and will travel around the southern side of the Long Hai mountains, through the community of Ba Ria to Long Phuoc. The journey is around 30km through typical Vietnamese countryside with lush rice fields, market gardens and farm houses that line the road.
The Long Phuoc tunnels were originally dug for use against the French and were extended for use in the Vietnam War. The tour allows access to the tunnels, including a life-sized hospital room, kitchen and bedrooms. These were the first tunnels in Vietnam, they are original and not dug (or widened) especially for tourists. (May also include a visit to Long Tan Cross – Australian war memorial).
From Long Phuoc, the tour continues to VungTau, approximately 25km. VungTau is a favourite weekend beach escape destination for family vacations from Ho Chi Minh City. VungTau was known as Cap Saint-Jacques under French occupation and was a popular beach resort for French, Australian and American service personnel. The tour includes visits to:
*Nui Nho (Nho Mount) leading to the spectacular Statue of Jesus. Standing at 32m in height with 18.3m long arms (the locals claim it is 6m larger than Rio’s Christ the Redeemer), this statue serves as an excellent vantage point to admire the whole city and shoreline. The visit to the statue involves approx 900 steps, but it can be viewed from lower down.
*Niet Ban Tinh Xa (Nirvana Pagoda), the majestic statue of a recumbent Buddha, where visitors strike the giant bronze bell for luck.
*The White Villa (Bach Dinh) – once the weekend retreat of French Governor Paul Doumer (later French President). The villa is a beautiful colonial-era residence with extensive gardens.
*The Whale Temple (Thang Tam), which worships the remains of a whale washed up onto the VungTau shore over 100 years ago.
*VungTau Lighthouse. With its peak located 170 meters above sea level, the lighthouse offers panoramic views of the city – this stop depends on time available.
*Worldwide Arms Museum ( worth seeing )
End of services. Back Sai Gon and finish your Long Tan Nui Dat Battle Field tour.
