Full description
Located 60 kilometers from Ho Chi Minh, Cu Chi is a popular spot for both Vietnamese and foreign tourists alike. The network of over 200 kilometers of tunnels became legendary when they played a vital role in the Vietnam War. In their heyday, the tunnels were functioning underground cities including numerous trap doors, specially constructed living areas, storage facilities, weapons factories, field hospitals, command centers, and kitchens.

Today, ducks and water buffalo happily co-exist in the rivers along the side of the road. However, the peaceful rural rice paddy scenery belies the area’s violent history. Whilst at this site, it is hard to imagine the destruction, damage, and defoliation over this whole area, caused by bombing and mines. There is plenty of evidence of the fierce battle that took place there during the 1960s, when Cu Chi was a "Free Target Zone".

Start your tour in the morning, watching a short introductory video which explains how the tunnels were constructed. From there, spend the next hour exploring the tunnels, before enjoying tea, and cassava (guerrilla’s food during the war).
