What a waste of time took 2 hours to get there and almost 3 and a half to get back to Saigon. We might have been on site for 2 hours at the very most. To just see the odd replicas. There were about 5 main things they showed us. They have done a good job on the replicas of the in ground traps displays. You will spend more time at the gift shop/restaurant/gun range than actually seeing anything. Who ever thought it would be a good location was a gun range thought wrong. It feels like you are sitting in the middle of a war zone while trying to eat or shop. If you are trying to listen to someone talk you can not hear anyone over the firing of the guns. Plus they do not give you ear plugs or anything. There is so many tour groups there all trying to huddle around the same small thing and talk at the same time that you have no idea what you are listening too and you are lucky if you can even see what they are talking about! Save your time & money. Or spend a bit more and don’t sign up for a group tour out of Saigon. Saigon has so many better things to offer. We chatted with one of my spouse uncles who had just been there and he said our guide didn’t take us to even half of the stuff they saw. So maybe it was just our guide. here is also 2 different sites you can visit. So he might have went to that one.

If you want to see how life was at the 1973 war between the Viet Kong to US army = you welcome to visit this place - almost 2 hours from Saigon.

Great and vast site with a lot of interesting attractions to see - of course this depends on the tour guide but to fully understand the sites I would highly recommend a guide. Beware the actual tunnels you can go in are very small. The good thing is there is an exit very 20m, so you do not need to get down there for 100m if you don’t feel well. Still an interesting experience and for me the most relevant thing was the aspects you can learn from the guided tour anyway. We left from Saigon in the morning by bus and returned to the city around 2pm, so a nice half-day activity I would recommend for everyone who visits Saigon for the first time.

Interesting site to see but value is questionable. Long bus ride and lots of tourists. Tunnels difficult to see as very small. Would be enhanced with cut aways of actual tunnels.

It is somewhat dependent on the quality of your guide, but it’s worth it no matter what. 16,000 soldiers fought and died here and their story needs to be told.
