    Cu Chi Tunnels
    Stop: 4 hours - Admission included
    Upon arrival, before exploring the tunnels, you will have some short introduction followed by introductory video about how the tunnels were constructed and how the people survived in the harsh conditions of the war time. Then, spend your time to explore the remaining area and tunnel systems which included the special constructed living areas with kitchens, bedrooms side by side with other martial facilities like storage, weapons factories, field hospitals, and command centers helping whoever lives inside the tunnels meet their basic needs. Besides, there are also many hidden trap doors and dangerous traps within the maze-like tunnels for security purpose during the war. Afterward, special tea and cassava (guerilla’s food during the war) will be served. Break time for relax or time for those who want to try the real shooting gun. Return to Saigon. End trip.

Great trip to the Cu Chi Tunnels. Although this was called a "Half day" trip, we left at 8:30am and returned after 4pm, so it was really more of a full day, in case you're planning another activity after. There are two sets of restored tunnels and I went to the standard ones -

We enjoyed our visit and the insight into how the Viet Cong defended their country and how they lived during this time. The man traps designed to injure rather than kill were cruel but ingenious. The tunnel that you can crawl through was an experience in claustrophobia, even

Well worth the visit. Guide was informative along the 2 hour drive. Excellent English, knowledge and a sense of humour. Seeing the tunnels and environment provide a realistic perspective to perceptions from books and movies.
