Tour snapshot

Within sight of Hồ Chí Minh City, the Cu Chi-Ben Duoc Tunnels and Hóc Môn Agricultural Wholesale Market are both a good combination half-day tour for those who love to seek deep not only into Vietnamese’s current busy lives but also a search back far into the past.

Travelling is all about this, and why don’t you try to bargain and see the battle after our hard-to-find-but-totally-worth-the-effort day tour?


  • Sample delicious Vietnamese tropical fruits just like the locals do — in the market.
  • Stroll through tight walkways and bustling atmosphere of the Hoc Mon wholesale market.
  • Learn more about Vietnam’s unique food culture.
  • wiggle through some of the narrow passageways in the Cu Chi tunnel.
  • If that’s not enough wartime nostalgia, you can even fire a variety of automatic weapons ( Bullets cost excludes)

Awesome Bargain & Battle

  • In this city of almost 10 million, you have plenty of ways to spend your time and money. There are so many amazing excursions, tours and places vying for your dollars, so it can be difficult to stray off the tourist-beaten path, but it is worthwhile. Traveling with Hana Tourist, you are venturing beyond the hotspots and will be rewarded with a well-established (and essential) stops in combination with a heritage study in one day. We simply name it ‘Bargain & Battle’ half-day tour for a Hóc Môn Agriculture Wholesale Market and Cu Chi Tunnel destinations.
  • The Hóc Môn Agriculture Wholesale Market is the largest agricultural product supplier in the city, accounting for 50-55 percent of the total demand. Authority has unveiled a plan to develop these wholesale markets into destinations for not only product buyers but also tourists.
  • Meanwhile, Cu Chi Tunnel is one of the greatest works constructed by Vietnamese people as a place to live and hide from being attacked during wars.  This Half Day Tour is all about fresh, cheap, ‘Bargain’ and a great way to crack into the historical ‘Battle’ story and scene.

  1. Jonna

    Another great trip with our perfect tour guide Henry. It was a more than exciting experience to go through a few of the tunnels. If you have problems with claustrophobia you should not go through the tunnels but even if you wait outside, there are a lot of things waiting for you. The tour gives a very interesting impression of the history!

  2. Casandra Ruiz

    A great adventure with our tour guide Blue! I would not recommend going through the longer tunnel if you are claustrophobic, however it would still be a great experience otherwise! This tour allows you to see things through a different perspective

  3. Paul

    Excellent tour. Tour guide Zedd had complete knowledge of history of area . Suitable for all ages and sizes and a must do from Saigon

  4. Lynn and gamily

    Fantastic half-day tour with Will, recommended by Trong in the sales office on Bui Vien St. Much more to the trip than we expected and glad we wore trail shoes not flip flops for the tunnels – slippy and low with some crawling needed if you’re not very flexible! Interesting to try durian and jack fruit at the market and loads of useful information about the city and history given by Will. Thanks to everyone at Hana.

  5. Linda

    Enjoyable trip and guide Jimmy was very friendly and informative.
    If you are claustrophobic think twice before going in the tunnels.
    Visit to the market was also very interesting and the amount of different fruits and vegetables is amazing.
