If you’re short on time, you don’t need a full-day tour to visit the Cu Chi Tunnels, a network of Vietnam-War–era tunnels some 37 miles (60 kilometers) outside Ho Chi Minh City. Stay in bed longer, enjoy lunch at a place of your own choosing, and take it easy with door-to-door round-trip transportation on an afternoon tour that’s perfect for anyone who loves unique places.

What to Expect

Your local guide will collect you from your central Ho Chi Minh City hotel for the drive to the Cu Chi Tunnels. Learn about the role the underground network played in the Vietnam War along the way. On arrival, watch a film about the tunnels and the savage fighting in the area. Then explore a sample of the vast warren: the weapons factory, hospital, kitchens, as well as some tunnels so low you need to crawl.

If you’d like, try cassava, the bland root that was the main food for guerrillas fighting in Cu Chi. You can also choose to fire weapons, including AK-47 assault rifles and even machine guns at the nearby shooting range. Once your group is done at the range, return to your hotel in time for dinner.

Fun tour with great value

Yen was a great tour guide, both informative and funny. The bus ride was comfortable and Yen taught us about the war on the way. The tunnels were great and definitely worth the experience, especially for the low cost.
