Cu Chi Tunnels guided tour
Cu Chi Tunnels is a legendary underground system of over 220 km of tunnels, a must-see for anyone who is interested in the history of the Vietnam War. The tunnels are now a historical structure of Vietnam and considered a heroic district for the role they played in the resistance to US forces during the Vietnam War.
The tunnels are located approximately 60km from Ho Chi Minh city. Enjoy the scenery along the way, as you pass the lush, endless rice fields. See the ducks and water buffaloes swimming in the rivers. You might find it hard to imagine that once the area was almost completely destroyed by bombs and mines from the war, when Cu Chi was a "free target zone ".
Upon arrival, you will get a chance to walk through some of the tunnels, discover the hidden corners and imagine how was the life there for the resistance soldiers.You could also try to cook with the smokeless stoves used by Vietnamese soldiers to cook during the war and even try the food eaten by the soldiers. If you're feeling brave, or curious, you can even try your hand at shooting at AK-47, one of the guns used during the war.
