8h00 (or 13h30) - We will be taking a break from the norm and travel by boat instead of minivan to the famous Cu Chi Tunnels. Enjoy the rural scenery along the bank of the canal on the way along Saigon river to Cu Chi.
9h30 (or 14h30) - Upon arrival, we will spend a few exciting hours discovering the mystery of Cu Chi Tunnels. The tunnels system was created around 1948 to assist Viet Minh in their combat with the French. Digging and building of tunnels continued over the next 25 years until it was an underground city with living areas, kitchens, storage, weapons factories, field hospitals, and command centers. The tunnels could house up to 10,000 people who virtually lived underground for years.
There, people led relatively normal lives, which included getting married and raising children. During the American War, the entire area of Cu Chi was designated as a free fire zone; therefore, was heavily attacked and bombed. From 1988, two sections of tunnels have been opened up for visitors. Now you have the chance to enjoy this wonderful experience.
