This huge network of underground tunnels in Vietnam which has been presereved by the Vietnam government and has become a popular tourist destination as a war memorial.
The tunnels were used by Viet Cong soldiers as hiding spots during the Vietnam war, and were a base of operations for the Vietnam army.
As well as an underground hiding spot, the tunnels were used to transfer communications, supplies, food and weapons.
Viet Cong soldiers would also often live in the tunnels, sometimes remaining underground for days at a time.
Life in the tunnels was not good. The tunnels were full of dangerous animals and insects, and food, water and air was scarce.
A number of attempts were made by American bombers during the war to destroy the tunnels as they knew that the tunnels were a strong advantage for the Viet Cong.
You can visit the tunnels throughout the year, however make sure to book a place on a tour in advance as they do get busy. You can choose from half or whole day visits.

What people are saying about Cu Chi Tunnels
So glad we chose that company everything worked like clock work from pick up to drop off.
Our guide knew so much and was very informative. It was a full day, we saw and experienced so much and it was just incredible. The lunch was delicious and filling. The whole day was packed with adventure.
Great tour, great guide, nice variety of war history and local culture. Our guide (Bao), was very knowledgable and friendly. The places we visited were all very interesting and all the people there were friendly. We (my wife and grown children) all had a great time.
It will be much better if also provided with lunch since we’re starving when going back to HCM
-There and back from district 1 in 7-8 hours. -Fun and energetic guide - ‘Lovely Betty’ -Lots of sights and remnants from the war. -Able to walk through the tunnels It’s a must-do if you have some time spare while in HCM city. Only criticisms: -We stopped for a tour of some kind of art shop was unnecessary. -The ‘propaganda’ video at the end could be updated or removed from the tour.
