Vietnam Tours ending in Saigon visit the Cu Chi Tunnels.

Cu Chi Tunnels - 2 days

Nowhere else is the tenacious spirit of the Vietnamese more evident than in the underground tunnels of Cu Chi. Giving a unique insight into the dark times of the Vietnam War when an under supplied army of guerrillas defeated one of the most well armed military powers in the world, the US.

The Cu Chi area was the site of some major battles during the Vietnam War and one of the most heavily bombed in a failed operation to destroy the tunnel network. The Cu Chi tunnels are a 250 km long underground maze which played a significant role during the war, even acting as the base of operations during the Tet Offensive in 1968. The Viet-Cong were constantly expanding and repairing the network of tunnels and the three levels penetrated deep into the ground and included living areas, weapon factories, field hospitals, kitchens and even a tiny cinema for down time.

Often lead by a relative of a Viet Cong fighter in green fatigues you’ll walk the bush trails discovering grass covered trapdoors, ingenious, yet gruesome booby traps and hidden underwater entrances in rivers. There is also an opportunity to go underground and pop off a few rounds at the firing range.
