The West course was opened in 1994 and designed by Taiwanese architect Chen King Shih. The East course was designed in 1997 by Lee Trevino, six-time Major Champion Winner. It has long been recognized as Vietnam’s premier golf club and was voted as “One of the Asia Best Golf Courses”. Enjoy your first 18-hole round of golf in Vietnam.

DAY 3: TWIN DOVES GOLF CLUB (B,D)
Take a short drive out of Saigon this morning for a second round at Twin Doves Golf Club. Said to be the first private golf club in southern Vietnam, the 27-hole international championship-level golf course features three woodlands and lakes-styled courses, named Luna, Sole, and Stella. While the Luna course is characterized by rolling small hills contoured by natural forests, the Sole Course plays around a blue lake featuring island greens and beach bunkers. The most exciting of the three nines, the Stella course, has its holes flanked by creeks and trees, demanding accurate shots since the greens are multi-tiered and guarded by water hazards.
Head back to your hotel and rest up before spending an incredible evening at Saigon Opera House for the incredible A O Show by Lune Production, also known as the Cirque du Soleil of Vietnam. Enjoy a night of theatrical visual arts including contemporary dance, acrobatics, and bamboo work amidst the beauty of the theater's French style décor and live music in the air. End the night with dinner at a local restaurant.
Overnight Ho Chi Minh City.
DAY 4: CU CHI TUNNELS & SAI GON CITY (B,L)
Today’s all about history, and what better way to learn than with a half-day tour of Cu Chi Tunnels, an incredible underground tunnel network constructed by Vietcong guerrillas during the Vietnam American War. Hear the tales of how these tunnels were built and visit two sections of the tunnel where it is still possible to crawl inside to experience first-hand what life was like living underground. Afterwards, return to Ho Chi Minh City in time to enjoy a late lunch at a local restaurant.
After lunch, explore the old Saigon with a walking tour of its most iconic buildings, starting with the Reunification Hall, formally called the Presidential Palace. Then, take a stroll in Ho Chi Minh City’s colonial quarter, walking past scenes of everyday life on the way, admiring the beautiful architecture of the City Hall, Notre Dame Cathedral, and the Old Saigon Post Office.
