Full description
Discover the area which resides at the end of the Ho Chi Minh Trail and served as the base from where Vietnamese guerilla soldier attacked Saigon. Learn about how the fighters of Cu Chi took the war underground by developing a network of tunnels that stretched as far as Cambodia, which included: meeting rooms, kitchens and ventilation systems. These tunnels served as an effective network for engaging in guerrilla warfare against U.S troops.

Don’t miss this short, exciting trip through this labyrinth of interlaced tunnels. Choose how you want to experience it — in a smaller, larger, or private group. See green paddy fields, local farmers and buffaloes along the road to the tunnels for an insight into Vietnamese agriculture.

Spend time exploring the maze of tunnels with countless trap doors, storage facilities, weapons factories, field hospitals, command centers, kitchens, and more. Enjoy the most popular food during war days at Cu Chi tunnels – the cassava.
