Description

Escape the hustle and bustle of the city and explore the rural landscape and the famous Củ Chi Tunnels in South Vietnam. Follow in the footsteps of a Vietcong fighter as you climb through an impressive 155 miles (250 km) of tunnels and visit a typical shooting range.

Let us pick you up at your hotel to leave for Củ Chi. On the way there you can watch the hectic urban landscape change into a more peaceful rural environment. Drive along rice fields, picturesque street vendors and ever more lush greenery until you reach Củ Chi.

Once there, you will first visit the Củ Chi Tunnels, some of the most famous underground networks of paths, hiding places, sleeping quarters, meeting rooms, hospitals and the Hoang Cam Oven. Some of the narrow tunnels hardly offer enough space for a single person, but other tunnels are a little wider and easy to visit. You can also learn more about the topsoil layer, which is only 3-4 metres thick and can bear the weight of a 55-tonne tank and the explosive damage caused by bombs.

Then watch an insightful film about the war experience before continuing to explore the trapdoors and underground rooms of the tunnel. Then visit the huge bomb craters from the war, the ammunition and souvenir shops of the clothing factory and the museum of homemade weapons. At the National Defense Sports Shooting Range you have the opportunity to fire an M-15, AK-47 and a carbine rifle to have a real war experience.

To round off the tour, enjoy traditional Vietnamese pho soup and a local tapioca recipe before you are driven back to your hotel in Ho Chi Minh City at noon.
