Cu Chi Tunnels Tour

Explore one of South Vietnam’s most important wartime sites, the impressive Cu Chi Tunnels. This tour from Ho Chi Minh City includes an in-depth introduction to the history and significance of the tunnels and plenty of time to explore the myriad of underground alleys and structures.

Just 40 miles (60 km) outside of metropolitan Ho Chi Minh City is one of the most important historical sites in southern Vietnam. The Cu Chi Tunnels are a network of man-made tunnels and caverns that stretch over 120 miles (200 km). The Viet Cong built them during the Vietnam War and used them for shelter, supply routes, and weapons stores.

The tunnels gave the Northern Vietnamese soldiers a strategic edge to a war they were mostly ill-equipped to fight. This strategy spelled disaster for American troupes.

Today, what is left of the tunnels is open to the public as an open-air museum. It isn’t an easy place to visit and stories from the time are harrowing to hear, but it is somewhere you cannot miss. Exploring the tunnels, you will be astounded by the ingenuity and resilience of the North Vietnamese army.
