HALFDAY - CU CHI TUNNEL TOUR

  • Tour code: VIG19
  • Duration: Half day
The spirit of Vietnamese to survive and thrive is displayed by the incredible system of hand-tool dug, underground tunnels that spiderweb well over 200 kilometers in total distance. Sometimes over 10 meters deep, it was with the aid of these tunnels that the Vietnamese survived air-raids from the French and the Vietnamese for over 35 years. Sometimes living underground for days a time, the Vietnamese had schools, hospitals, meeting rooms, kitchens and even sleeping quarters, take a tour around the Cu Chi grounds to see how they lived and how they trapped the Americans. You can even get inside and crawl through a bit of the tunnel.
