Have you ever experienced the tunnel systems that were made by the Cu Chi guerrillas these were made without machinery, GPS, architects or engineers? The network of tunnels stretched over 200 km from Viet Nam to Cambodia border which included meeting rooms, kitchens, ventilation systems and served as the base where Vietnamese soldiers attacked Saigon.
You will learn how they breathed and cooked but could barely see. You also discover how weapons were made in poor conditions and see a lot of deadly traps made by hands from bomb shells that collected in their battlefield. This is a great tour to witness Vietnamese people’s power to survive.
Pick up at your hotel and drive to Cu Chi, just 70 km northwest of Saigon. Upon arrival, watch a documentary film about the mystery of Cu Chi Tunnels. Then discover an underground city with living areas and working areas such as; Hoang Cam field kitchen, areas to sew uniforms for the team and make sandals made from rubber tires, where food was stored, the weapons bunker and ambulance. You will also have the opportunity to view pictures from the time.
Enjoy local specialties of the "land of steel" - tapioca with salt sesame. View the type of weapons that were used at the time and see the war zone where the effects of falling bombs remain visible.
Visit the Hall commemorating the war and listen to the commentary. You will also see the reconstruction of monuments, famous landscapes of Vietnam through the microcosm such as Nha Rong Wharf, Hue, One Pillar Pagoda, Saigon Bridge, Long Bien, Paracels, Spratlys and the USA agreement.
