Tour Description

Cu Chi tunnels were used by Viet Cong soldiers as hiding spots during combat, as well as serving as communication and supply routes, hospitals, food and weapon caches and living quarters for numerous North Vietnamese fighters. The tunnel systems were of great importance to the Viet Cong in their resistance to American forces, and helped to counter the growing American military effort.

Itinerary

TWO OPTIONAL DEPARTURES: AT 08:00 or 13.00

At 08.00 (or 13.00), the car driver and guide pick you up at the hotel and depart from Ho Chi Minh City to Cu Chi. Leave the city behind, the scenery changes to views of rice paddies with villagers drying noodles by the side of the road and other scenes of Southern Vietnam. Upon arrival in Cu Chi, start the visit of the famous Cu Chi Tunnels. It is an impressive network of tunnels with a length of over 250 km. This strategic place was used by 15,000 Viet Cong fighters during the war. This main axis system has many branches connecting to underground hideouts, shelters, and entrances to other tunnels. The tunnels are between 0.5 to 1 m wide, just enough space for a person to walk along by bending or dragging. However, parts of the tunnels have been modified to accommodate visitors. The upper soil layer is between 3 to 4 m thick and can support the weight of a 50-ton tank and the damage of light cannons and bombs. The underground network provided sleeping quarters, meeting rooms, hospitals, and other social rooms.

You will have a chance to watch the movie of the war time. Then you spend your time inspecting the tunnel site, visiting the gates, traps, underground hospitals, worships, kitchens and bunkers, and going through a section of the tunnel. You also have a chance to try firing M-16, AK-47 and carbine rifle at the National Defence Sports Shooting Range. After the visit, we transfer you back to your hotel at 14.30 (or 17.30).

Special Offer: “Pho” for Morning Session, and dinner for the Afternoon Session
