Picked up at the hotel and transferred to Bach Dang Pier. From here, get in a speedboat and start your trip to Cu Chi Tunnels. It is an impressive network of tunnels with a length of over 250 km. This strategic place was used by 15,000 Viet Cong fighters during the war. This main axis system has many branches connecting to underground hideouts, shelters, and entrances to other tunnels.
The tunnels are between 0.5 to 1 m wide, just enough space for a person to walk along by bending or dragging. However, parts of the tunnels have been modified to accommodate visitors. The upper soil layer is between 3 to 4 m thick and can support the weight of a 50-ton tank and the damage of light cannons and bombs. The underground network provided sleeping quarters, meeting rooms, hospitals, and other social rooms.
On the way, enjoy the beauty of nature and Vietnamese lifestyle along the river bank in your journey. Upon arrival in Cu Chi, visit the following places:
