Cu Chi Tunnels: Morning or Afternoon Guided Tour (Ben Duoc Option available)

5,008 reviews
Used by the Viet Cong during the Vietnam War, the Cu Chi Tunnels are a network of underground tunnels stretching more than 124 miles (200 kilometers). For travelers on a budget, this group tour of up to 20 people offers great value, including hotel pickup, round-trip transport, and a guided tour of the tunnels. Choose from a morning or afternoon tour to suit your schedule.

For me, this was a must do. The ticket price was reasonable, and you are allowed to stay as long as you like. On the grounds, the place has a café and seating areas. It was really interesting to see the scale of the building and the content, and it was really on a big scale.

The Palace is set in lovely grounds. You need to set aside a number of hours to tour the Palace properly. There are numerous steps to negotiate but there is a lift although difficult to locate. Many will recall the media attention during the Vietnam War of the North Vietnamese tank crashing through the gates of the Palace which was at that time home to the President of South Vietnam. The interior has been lovingly preserved and retains the elegant furnishings of the day.

Dear Frances, We appreciate your comments. The Palace is covered many kind of old trees in its ground. It marked a significant historic event of Vietnam so preservation is our responsibility. We hope to see you and your family again. Regards,

No queue to buy a ticket. I really enjoyed my visit to the Palace. There are lots of different rooms with different roles in the Palace. Information is plentiful to learn about the different rooms.

This was my first time inside the Independence Palace, visiting in March 2020, despite having been to HCMC on many occasions before. Previously I recall that the opening hours were quite restricted, but on this visit that didn't seem to be the case. There weren't too many other visitors when we were there (probably because of the start of the coronavirus pandemic). Interesting to explore the rooms and understand more of the history of this important building.
