Cu Chi Tunnels is one of the most famous historical vestiges of Viet Nam’s national liberation war during 1945 – 1975. It’s located about 70 km to the northwest of Ho Chi Minh city – centre.

The first parts of short and simple tunnels were established in 1948 in two communes of in north of Cu Chi District. The network consists of approximately 250km of tunnels connected with one another like a spider’s web.

This is a unique and incomparable underground village was used with a lot of work from food and ammunition storage caches, medical care chambers, commanding chambers, meeting chambers, bedrooms, cooking by Hoang Cam stoves….

Those who set food in the tunnels cannot help admiring the talent, determination and endurance of the communist guerrillas. They dug and removed tens of thousands of tons of soil and stone with rudimentary tools, and then camouflaged the openings so well that nobody could find them.

Highlight:

  • Visiting historical site will include American weapons gallery, and a bullet riddled tank, variety of ingenious and rather brutal booby traps used by the Viet Cong.
  • Explore the 1-metre high tunnels, a pretty claustrophobic experience – imagine living down there for a while.
  • A chance to fire real weapons including the Ak47, M1, M16, M30, M60.

7:40AM gathering at Viet Dream Travel office (112 Bui Vien, district 1, Ho Chi Minh city). Free pick up for hotel’s location on main street: De Tham St, Bui Vien St, Pham Ngu Lao St, Le Thanh Ton St, Bui Thi Xuan St, Pham Hong Thai St, Thu Khoa Huan St, Nguyen An Ninh St, Cong Quynh St, Ly Tu Trong ..Dist 1, Ho Chi Minh city.

The tour Cu Chi Tunnels – Ben Duoc departs at 8:00 am. Enjoy the scenery along the way, as we pass the lush, endless rice fields and the ducks are water buffaloes swimming in the rivers. You might find it hard to imagine that once the area was almost completely destroyed by bombs and mines from the war, when Cu Chi was a “free target zone “.

Once we arrive, you will get a chance to walk through some of the tunnels, discover the hidden corners and imagine what life was like here for the resistance soldiers. If you like, try to cook with the smokeless stoves used by Vietnamese soldiers to cook during the war. You can even try foods which the soldiers lived on. If you’re feeling brave, or curious, you can even try your hand at shooting at AK-47, one of the guns used during the war.

Head back to the city in the afternoon; the tour finishes at 2:30 PM.
