After breakfast we mad our way to the Cu Chi Tunnels. It took around 1 and a half hours to get there. These were the tunnels used for battle during the Vietnamese war. This was very interesting and the tunnels were tiny. I wasn't brave enough to go down one, but they were very hot, dirty and small. We also learned about some of the traps set by the Vietnamese for the Americans.

We arrived back in Ho Chi Minh around 2 and went for lunch. We then went to the market where I picked up a few bits. We then walked back to the hotel and then went out again to find Nic an adaptor as she left the last one in Phnom Pehn.

Whilst we were out we saw a few salons and I saw that a manicure was only 40 000 Dong (1 pound 30), so I went in and had one, they did it pretty well.

At 7.30 we went for our last group meal (tomorrow I'm on my own with Tony for the rest of the trip). This was chilled and enjoyable. We then went for a drink and came home and watched some episodes of Modern Family.
