Half-Day Afternoon Cu Chi Tunnels Tour

Overview
Located 37 miles (60km) from Ho Chi Minh City, Cu Chi is now considered a heroic district for its role during the American war in Vietnam. It is legendary for its network of tunnels, which extend over 135 miles (220km), and is a popular destination for both Vietnamese and foreign visitors
Highlights
  • Travel underground and back in time to the Vietnam War at Cu Chi Tunnels
  • See the weapons factory, hospital, and fighting tunnels with a guide
  • Choose to shoot an impressive range of weaponry at the firing range
  • Relax with door-to-door roundtrip transport from your hotel
What to Expect
Your local guide collects you from your central Ho Chi Minh City hotel in the afternoon for the drive to the Cu Chi Tunnels. Learn about the role the underground network played in the Vietnam War along the way. On arrival, watch a film about the tunnels and the savage fighting in the area. Then explore a sample of the vast warren: the weapons factory, hospital, kitchens, as well as some tunnels so low you need to crawl. If you’d like, try cassava, the bland root that was the main food for guerrillas fighting in Cu Chi. You can also choose to fire weapons, including AK-47 assault rifles and even machine guns at the nearby shooting range (at your own expense). Once your group is done at the range, return to your hotel in time for dinner.

A must. War is a horrible thing and it was fascinating to see how the Vietnamese tried to fight in their way, so clever. The stories of the tyre shoes, the air holes, the traps and so show how inventive and resilient they were. An eerie but important place to visit and learn a
