Cu Chi Experience- Small Group Adventure

Secrets of the tunnels

Experience the world of the Cu Chi freedom fighters with a visit to their famous tunnel system and meet a local family and gain an insight into life, past and present. Leaving the hustle and bustle of Ho Chi Minh City behind, journey two and an half hours west towards the Cambodian border bound for the Cu Chi Tunnels. Before arriving at the tunnels meet a local family and hear about their lives, culture and customs.

The Cu Chi tunnels were built during the Indochina conflict. This network of more than 175 miles 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 Ho Chi Minh City. In their heyday, they were functioning underground cities with hospitals, schools, kitchens and sleeping quarters. Today the Vietnamese government have preserved approximately 75 kilometres of the tunnels as a memorial park, in some areas tunnels have been widened and low powered lights installed so that western tourists can now fit through the complex.Our local guide will take us on a fascinating trip around the Cu Chi Tunnels where we learn more about the conditions the people lived in, the hardships they faced and the amazing ingenuity employed to maintain life in the tunnels.
