The Cu Chi Tunnels, which highlight the dedication and ingenuity of Viet Cong soldiers during the Vietnam War, are a must-see destination in southern Vietnam.
What to Expect
After pick up at your hotel, you will enjoy a half-day excursion to the famous Cu Chi tunnels. This network of tunnels, which stretched for over 200km, became legendary during the 1960's.
Cu Chi tunnels played a vital part in the U.S.-Vietnam War in that they allowed the Viet Cong to control a large rural area only 30 to 40km from former Saigon.
At its height, the tunnel system stretched from Saigon to the Cambodian border. The network, parts of which were several levels deep, included innumerable trap doors, speciall-constructed living areas, storage facilities, weapons factories, field hospitals, command centers and kitchens.
Today, the remaining tunnels have become a major tourist attraction giving visitors a unique experience and feel of what underground life during the war must have been like.
The tunnels have been widened for our benefit (otherwise we would not be able to enter them!) For those interested there's even the opportunity to fire an AK-47 or MK-16 at the nearby rifle range.
