- Explore one of Vietnam’s must-see landmarks
- Unique tour includes views of daily Saigon river life
Discover the stories behind the famous Cu Chi Tunnels, base of operations for the Viet Cong during the Tet Offensive, on this fascinating and exciting Vietnam gift experience. Located just outside Ho Chi Minh City, this vast network of underground tunnels served not just as hiding places for fighters, but communications channels, hospitals, weapons caches and living quarters. You’ll walk into the jungle to see a secret entrance to the tunnels, and visit the bunkers and underground hideouts yourself, as well as watching a documentary showing what life was like down there during wartime.
Unlike most Cu Chi Tunnels tours, this experience takes you out by luxurious speedboat, cruising along the river for stunning views of the Saigon riverbanks and to see what daily life is like for people here. If you choose to return by boat also (there is another option, to return by shuttle bus) then you will also be served a delicious local lunch. Other inclusions during your tour: the chance to crawl through the tunnels; take a turn at the rifle range to see how good your aim is, and to enjoy some green tea and tapioca, typical rations for VC fighters during the war. Don’t miss this Ho Chi Minh City day trip, it’s one of the essentials for any visit.
