Two Optional Departure: 8:00 AM or 01:00 PM

At 8:00 AM (or 01:00 PM, the car driver and guide will pick you up at your hotel and depart from Ho Chi Minh City to Cu Chi.

Leaving the city behind, the scenery changes to views of rice paddies, villagers drying noodles by the side of the road and other scenes of Southern Vietnam.

Upon arrival in Cu Chi, we will start the visit of the famous Cu Chi Tunnels. Cu Chi Tunnels are an impressive network of tunnels with a length of over 250 km. This strategic place was used by 15,000 Viet Cong fighters during the war. This main axis system has many branches connecting to underground hideouts, shelters and entrances to other tunnels. The tunnels are between 0.5 to 1 m wide, just enough space for a person to walk along by bending or dragging. However, parts of the tunnels have been modified to accommodate visitors. The upper soil layer is between 3 to 4 m thick and can support the weight of a 50-ton tank and the damage of light cannons and bombs. The underground network provided sleeping quarters, meeting rooms, hospitals, and other social rooms.

You will have the chance to watch the movie of the war time. Then you will spend your time inspecting the tunnel site, visiting the gates, traps, underground hospitals, worships, kitchens and bunkers, and going through a section of the tunnel. You will also have the chance to try firing M-16, AK-47 and carbine rifle at the National Defence Sports Shooting Range.

After the visit, we transfer you back to your hotel at 2:30 PM (or 6:30 PM).

Your trip ends and it is time to say goodbye. Hope to see you again!
