Ho Chi Minh City – Cu Chi-Ben Duoc Tunnels full day - 1 Day

Overview

Ho Chi Minh City – Cu Chi Tunnels full day

(original and less touristy tunnels section)

 City tour in the morning

Speaking of Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon), you will probably think of busy shopping areas, bustling street corners, passing cars, shimmering lights of skyscrapers. Besides, there are still ancient corners that have remained strong despite the time.

You will be picked at your hotel to discover the cultural marks of this city:

  • War Remnant Museum
  • Notre Dame Cathedral
  • Old Central Post Office
  • Jade Pagoda
  • Opera House
  • City hall – Walking Street

Lunch will be served in a local restaurant.

Cu Chi – Ben Duoc Tunnels  in the Afternoon 

After lunch, you will be transferred to Cu Chi – Ben Duoc Tunnels with a one and half hour drive. This is a rare chance to escape the bustle of the city and explore the rural scenery along the way.

Once you reach Ben Duoc Tunnels, you could see some of the most famous underground networks of pathways, hideouts, sleeping quarters, meeting rooms, hospitals, and Hoang Cam Stove. These narrow tunnels provide barely enough space for a single person to crawl their way through, though some are now wider to accommodate visitors. We also learn that the mere 10–13 feet (3–4 m) thick level of upper soil can support the bearing weight of a 55 ton (50 mT) tank and the explosive damage of bombs.

Then we can watch an insightful film about the wartime experience before further exploring the tunnel’s trap doors and underground quarters. Then make a visit to huge bomb craters left from the war, the Garment-factory Ammunition and Souvenir Shops, and the Museum of Self-made Weapons. Get the exhilarating opportunity to fire an M-16, AK-47, and a carbine rifle at the National Defense Sports Shooting Range for a true wartime experience.

Finally, savor the local tapioca recipe before the comfortable ride back to your Ho Chi Minh hotel.
