Cu Chi Tunnels

The tunnels of Cu Chi are an immense network of connecting tunnels which were the location of several military campaigns during the Vietnam War, and were the Viet Cong’s base of operations for the Tết Offensive in 1968. Apart from crawling into the tunnels and experience what it’s like living underground, you will have the chance to see the authentic local life along the way. A combination of culture and history, and an educational and unforgettable experience.
