Exploring Cu Chi Tunnels

Experience the world of the Cu Chi freedom fighters with a visit to their famous tunnel system. This network of over 200 km of tunnels became legendary during the 1960's when they played a vital part in the American War, allowing the Viet Cong to control a large rural area close to Saigon. In their heyday, the tunnels were functioning underground cities. 

As it is one of highlight historical sites of Saigon and it should not be missed out so it can be crowed at certain time. Therefore, our recommendation departure time is for less touristy.

  • Departure time: 7:30 or 13:30 (Optional)

  • Itinerary:

- Depart from the center to Cu Chi district. Leaving the city behind, the scenery changes to views of rice paddies, villagers drying noodles by the side of the road and other scenes typical to southern Vietnam.
