  • Not worth a visit of half a day, much less than 1 day. At a time is seen. The ideal is to combine the round trip with a taxi driver to wait for 1:30 At most, leaving at 8:00 the center of Saigon, will be back at the hotel around 12:00 at the latest. If you have 4:00 pm from plane gives perfectly to combine the tunnels with the trip to the airport. In this case, would pay at most 60USD for shipping, being perfectly acceptable 40USD.
