Cu Chi Tunnels Tour
You will be picked up at your hotel and taken to the Cu Chi tunnel area where you will first get a personal history lesson on guerilla warfare and the history of the tunnels. The network of long underground tunnels, totaling 200kms, was used by the Viet Cong guerillas as hiding spots during combat, as well as serving as supply routes, used for communication purposes, weapon caches, hospitals and living quarters. Today you will get the chance to climb into the underground and imagine what it would have been like to sleep, eat, work and cook in these conditions. The tunnels were a crucial part in Viet Cong’s resistance to American forces and ultimately helped achieve military success; they are therefore an important place to visit for Vietnam’s history.
