Get a firsthand look at Vietnamese history on this half-day tour of the historic Cu Chi tunnels. Bike through charming villages, learn how rice paper is made, and dive deep into the earth as you experience the bravery of the Vietnamese during the war.
What to Expect
Head out of Ho Chi Minh City toward Tan Phu Trung village and bike ride through villages where the scars of war are still evident. Ride along paved roads and dirt paths past and bomb craters that bear witness to years of struggle.
Cycle through rubber plantations and observe the locals harvesters as they gather latex from the trees. Visit rice paper-making workshop before arriving at the Cu Chi tunnels for the 15-minute documentary film about their creation. Learn the history of conflict amongst the Cu Chi people and their rivals.
Continue on toward the tunnel site where simple weapons for fighting are displayed here. Head down real tunnels dug by the Viet Cong and experience just how brave the Vietnamese were during the war.
Afterwards, enjoy authentic Viet Cong food in a historical kitchen. Hop back on the bus and transfer back to Ho Chi Minh City and toward your hotel.
