Vietnam Holidays - The Cu Chi Tunnels

Travel some 30km outside Saigon to Cu Chi, where you will visit the vast underground network of tunnels built first as a defence against the French, and later expanded during the American war.  It was from here that the North Vietnamese waged their guerrilla warfare and you will marvel at their ingenuity and resilience.  See secret trapdoors, underground kitchens, living areas and meeting rooms. The more adventurous may explore the deeper second, and even third level tunnels.  For those preferring to remain above ground, there is ample opportunity to view excavated areas from above.  Your guide will advise you of the length and level of difficulty of each tunnel before entering - some are easily accessed by stairs.  We recommend good walking shoes and sun protection for this tour and advise you may get a little dirty!

The excursion from Saigon takes around 5 hours.
