Worth a short day trip to see this. You’ll be mesmerised by the intricacies of this tunnel system and perhaps appreciate why the Americans lost the war. Genius at work digging this by hand.

Visit this place if you to know more about the Vietnamese war/resistance. You might want to avoid the underground tunnels if you are claustrophobic.

The Cu Chi Tunnels is a must visit. You can explore the tunnels but be warned you need to be very small to do this as you will need to crawl or bend down. The bunkers are assessable to the majority! It’s an amazing place...More

Hair raising experience makes you wonder and marvel how the guerillas stayed in those tunnels and fought

Once you arrive the tour is interesting but a long drive. They offer a gun range but super expensive. I recommend a group tour and not worth a private tour and most of the time spent driving to the tunnels and back to Saigon.

We went in November and yes it was hot, yes it was sticky, but the experience was one to visit. When you're in the tunnels, don't expect a whole lot. All you can see is the person infront of you. It's not until you think...More

Interesting place to visit and realise that the tunnels were built long before the Vietnam war. It definitely shows the tenacity of the Vietnamese people. The different displays of various booby traps was interesting. The rifle shooting was an experience for my grandson but a...More

Mekong Delta – Private day tour with Jason Superstar. (40 Replies)
When researching our Mekong trip on TA we came across a guy called Jason Superstar who does private tours. With a name like that it really does set some expectations which we wondered about. We sent some emails asking for some assistance and ideas and to get a feel for him and couldn’t believe the enthusiasm, efficiency and details in the responses. So far I am thinking “impressive”! After a few more emails and photos we thought we had known this guy for ages. More impressive! Everything...More

9 day itinerary feedback (14 Replies)
Hello, My husband and I are planning a trip to Vietnam. This will be the first trip to Asia for both of us. Due to work constraints, we will only have 9 full days in Vietnam. Based on comments from this forum, we were initially planning on spending the entire 9 days in the northern part of the country. But there are things about the north and south that interest us. Since we don't know when we will be back, we would like to make the most of this trip. We have therefore booked airfare into...More
