A new day so new possibilities I booked a tour to a temple of the Cao Daoism religion. (For info Clik here) and the Cu Chi tunnels. The tunnels are a copy of the ones that where used by the Vietcong to deffend the USA in the 1960ís. It was along ride today because HCMC is a big town to get out of and filled with traffic. But it was worth the trouble to see these two sites. The life in the tunnels has been a hard life and a lot of war was held in those surroundings.

Because I will take a bus to Dalat in the night this morning I rested. And after all I was broken because of the two days of driving. One day at the rear of a moped and the other day in a way to small bus. Vietnamese standard. The afternoon I spend on a walking tour of HCMC. This walking tour is in the lonely Planet and brings you to all the nice things in the surroundings of the hotel.
