Full description
Depart from Ho Chi Minh City and head towards the Cu Chi Tunnels. Traveling to this destination will take you about 1.5 hours. Before you arrive, get to understand part of the Cu Chi’s history and the hardships Vietnamese suffered in the past through an introductory video. This overview also shows you information about the process of making the tunnel system and the Vietnamese’s endurance.

When reaching Cu Chi Tunnels, begin discovering the permitted areas of the tunnel systems like the living areas, such as bedrooms and kitchens, and the martial facilities such as the storage, fiend hospitals, weapon factories, and command center. Crawling through the tiny tunnels to explore the system is actually a great experience.

After the exploring, sip tangy tea and enjoy cassava, the main food of former Vietnamese guerillas. The final activity is to try your hand at the real shooting gun. After this, you are taken back to Ho Chi Minh City, where you will arrive at around 3:00 PM - 3:30 PM for the morning tour and 7:00-7:30 PM for the afternoon tour.
