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.

Depart from Ho Chi Minh City/Saigon to travel toCu Chi Tunnel. This is where guerilla warfare is exemplified and you will learn about the clever design of the tunnels and the strategic use of trap doors.

Even with B-52 bombers dropping 30-ton loads of explosive, turning the jungle into a pockmarked moonscape, 30 thousand American troops failed to conquered the area!

You will be offered the opportunity to crawl around a portion of the 121 km long, multiple-layered tunnel and learn how thousands of guerillas managed to stay underground for many days at a time, also their great technique to conceal smoke from their cooking.

There is plenty more to enjoy and even a chance to fire with real weapons like AK47 for an additional fee (paid locally).
