Get the best of Cu Chi Tunnel and Ho Chi Minh City on a relaxing and insightful tour exploring the city's history and splendour!
Cu Chi Tunnel stands as one of the most ingenious war tactics ever employed by local resistance. Built by local Vietnamese with just basic farming tools, this 250 km tunnel played a pivotal and important role in ensuring victories for the Viet Minh and Viet Cong. As a whole, this tunnel system consists of hospitals, rooms, kitchen, storage area, and a working room underground. It is definitely possible to stay and remain underground for days and still perform the daily function of lives as the underground army lies in wait to ambush the enemy troops. While the tunnel system is no longer used today, it is still maintained and used for tourism purposes - and this is what you will get to see today.
You will start your day with a visit to the famous Cu Chi Tunnels. Stretching over 250 km, Cu Chi is one of the most famous and historical aspects of war in Vietnam. The tunnel system was created in 1948 to assist the Viet Minh fight their colonial French ruler for independence. Since then, the tunnel system has been vital in playing a pivotal role in the 1960’s Vietnam War by allowing the Viet Cong (communist guerrillas) to control large rural areas, just 65 km away from Ho Chi Minh City. While the tunnel is still very much intact, today some sections of the tunnel has been opened for tourists to come and explore.
