Located 60km North-West of Ho Chi Minh city, Cu Chi Tunnels is now a popular spot for both Vietnamese & foreign tourists. This underground network of over 200km of tunnels became legendary when it 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 centres & kitchens.
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’s hard to imagine the destruction, damage & defoliation over this whole area, caused by bombing and mines. However, look close enough and there is plenty of evidence of the fierce battle that took place here during the 1960s when Cu Chi was a “Free Target Zone”.
We start our tour in the morning, before entering the tunnels visitors can watch a short introductory video showing how the tunnels were constructed. You will spend the next hour exploring the tunnels. Afterwards, enjoy tea and cassava (guerrilla’s food during the war). Return to Sai Gon.
Depart: 8:00 or 13:00
