At either 8am or 1:30pm you will be met in the hotel lobby by your guide and a driver for the tour. Today you are off to the Cu Chi Tunnels which were pivotal to the Communist’s victory over the Americans and the South Vietnamese Armies as they allowed the Viet Cong to control a large rural area around Saigon.
At its height, the tunnel system, parts of which were several levels deep, stretched over 200kms from Saigon to the Cambodian border. Today the remaining tunnels of this intricate network have been widened to accommodate visitors and has now become a major attraction giving a unique experience of what underground life in the American war must have been like and a deep appreciation of the courage and ingenuity of the Vietnamese people.
This is where guerilla warfare is exemplified and you will learn about the clever design of the tunnels and the strategic use of trap doors. Even with B-52 bombers dropping 30-ton loads of explosive, turning the jungle into a pockmarked moonscape, 30 thousand American troops failed to conquered the area! You will be offered the opportunity to crawl around a portion of the 121 km long, multiple-layered tunnel and learn how thousands of guerillas managed to stay underground for many days at a time, also their great technique to conceal smoke from their cooking. There’re a lot more to enjoy and even a chance to fire with real weapons like AK47 for an additional fee. After the tour you will be returned to your hotel by private car.
