    ITINERARY

    Morning tour: start from 8.00 – return at 14.00
    Afternoon tour: start from 13.00 – return at 18.30

     

    Our guide & driver will pick you up at your hotel in Ho Chi Minh Center for 1 hour 45 minute drive to Cu Chi Tunnels. Located 60km from Ho Chi Minh City, Cu Chi is now a popular spot for both Vietnamese & foreign tourists - the network of over 250km of tunnels became legendary when they played a vital role in the War. In their heyday, the tunnels were functioning underground cities including numerous trap doors, specially constructed living areas, storage facilities, weapons factories, field hospitals, command centers & kitchens. The Cu Chi people were able to continue their lives beneath the soil, where they slept, ate, planned attacks, healed their sick, and taught their young.
     


    Today, ducks and water buffalos happily co-exist in the rivers along the side of the road. However, the peaceful rural rice paddy scenery belies the area’s violent history. Visitors will find it hard to imagine the destruction, damage & defoliation over this whole area, caused by bombing and mines. There is plenty of evidence of the fierce battle that took place here during the 1960s when Cu Chi was a "Free Target Zone". For those interested, there’s an opportunity to fire off rounds from an AK47 or MK16 at the nearby rifle range.

    When you arrive at Cu Chi you’ll see a short introductory video showing how the tunnels were ingeniously constructed, and then spend the next hour exploring the maze of tunnels. Various mantraps and the remains of an American tank are on display. You’ll see as numerous bomb craters made by 500-pound bombs dropped by B52s. Afterwards, enjoy tea, cassava (guerrilla’s food during the war).

    Return to Ho Chi Minh City and drop off at your hotel.
