Experience the world of the Cu Chi freedom fighters with a visit to their famous tunnel system. This network of over 200 km of tunnels became legendary during the 1960's when they played a vital part in the American War, allowing the Viet Cong to control a large rural area close to Ho Chi Minh City. In their heyday, the tunnels were functioning underground cities.

Leaving the hustle and bustle of Ho Chi Minh City behind, take a 2.5-hour journey west towards the Cambodian border bound for the Cu Chi Tunnels. The Cu Chi tunnels were built by local fighters during the Indochina conflict as a base from which the Viet Cong could operate from close to the Southern Vietnamese capital. Initial construction started in 1948 when the Viet Minh required somewhere to hide from French air attacks and by 1965, the Cu Chi tunnel complex was estimated to consist of 200km's of tunnels. It included, hospitals, schools, meeting rooms, kitchens and sleeping quarters. Life was difficult for the inhabitants and to protect against outside intruders bobby traps were laid throughout the complex.

Your local guide will take you on a fascinating tour around the Cu Chi Tunnels where you'll learn more about the conditions the Vietnamese people lived in, the hardships they faced and the amazing ingenuity employed to maintain life in the tunnels.

      Cu Chi Tunnel tour was an awesome experience with our tour guide Queenie. With a small group of 10, we left from the Saigon Post Office at 7:30 am and arrived to Cu Chi Tunnels before many of the other tour groups. I would highly recommend visiting Cu Chi Tunnels as early as possible so that you can have to most time to learn about the tunnels without being hurried by other groups.

      On the way back, we briefly stopped at a little house and learned how to make rice paper. The stop overall was only around 15 minutes but it was a good little additional. We were also able to feed the livestock of pigs other tour group's rice paper creations. The piglets were SUPER cute!

      As stated in the tour agenda, we were promptly back by 1 PM.
