Cu Chi Tunnels Half Day Tour

If your time is at a premium, this short tour is a perfect way of exploring the famous Cu Chi Tunnels and getting to see rural life outside of Ho Chi Minh.

The Cu Chi Tunnels, which highlight the dedication and ingenuity of Viet Cong soldiers during the Vietnam War, are a must-see destination in Southern Vietnam.

This tour begins with a collection from your hotel followed by a drive through the Vietnamese countryside, which was once a stronghold of the Viet Cong, before arriving at the Cu Chi Tunnels zone.

This vast underground complex was once buzzing with thousands of soldiers but today offers a startling contrast to today’s Vietnam, a fast-developing country where the legacy of war is almost forgotten.

See and, if you're not too claustrophobic, explore some of the cramped tunnels which were central to the Viet Cong's strategic war operations including the famous 1968 Tet Offensive.

These narrow subterranean passageways served not only as living quarters but as supply routes and even hospitals for thousands of guerilla fighters - many died here from malaria and other diseases and a few were also born or married - and are viewed by some as a testimony to the Vietnamese people’s resilience.
