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.
There is a bus from Cu Chi to Tay Ninh: Bus no. 70-1. From Cu Chi – Tay Ninh: Cu Chi station – Highway 22 – Trang Bang station – Highway 22 – – Go Dau Tay Ninh station.

What people are saying about Cu Chi Tunnels
The tour is really good. Also people who are claustrophobic can easily take part. Crawling in the tunnels is only a very small part of it. Our tour guide Vu was perfect. She is really funny, gives you loads and loads of information and always makes sure, everybody is onboard. Answered all questions thrown at her. Did the half day tour which was sufficient. Needed to catch a flight later that day but they were right on time so that everything worked out. Highly recommend the tour.
Our transportation was amazing and comfortable. Our driver was very informative with so much to see and do all in one day. Amazing from start to finish. Wouldn’t got any better tour than this one.
Our guide Ken really put perspective and life behind everything we saw. Would recommend it for sure!
We can across hundreds of tour operators for the Cu Chi Tunnels. Fortunately we lucked out with our GetYourGuide experience. As advertised there was only 10 people in our group, van was comfortable and our guide (Pine) was awesome. He provided a great history of the Vietnam War and Tunnels. Highly recommend!
Great guide, well informed, excellent English. A fascinating glimpse into a bit of history, and an enjoyable trip on the Mekong. Terrific seven person Limo for transport, and a very pleasant lunch as well. Highly recommended.
