Situado a 37 millas (60 km) desde la ciudad Ho Chi Minh, Cu Chi ahora es considerado como un distrito heroico por su papel durante la guerra americana en Vietnam. Es legendario por sus red de túneles, que se extienden sobre 220 km (135 millas), y es un destino popular tanto para los visitantes extranjeros como los vietnamitas
Its Okay tour. If you dont have anything more interesting to do for a day, choose this. Was expecting a little bit more from it to be fair. You will have a chance to shoot with real war rifles, its around 20 for 10 bullets if I remember correctly.
p.s. Bare in mind its at least 2 hours drive on the bus one way.
The tour of the tunnel itself is good and well coordinated even the snacks towards the end of the tour was okay. We had this side trip in a factory where the workers were physically challenged. Their products are amazing and very expensive but I was a little concerned about the working condition of those people assuming the real factory is very much the same as the one they show the tourists. Our guide,Akira, took care of us really good.
Yes, definitely worth going on this trip. Our guide was very knowledgeable and answered any questions we had. On the way we stopped at a lacquer wear factory for the disabled. Was good to see how it is made but quite expensive. You really get an understanding of how the tunnels worked and how they were made and how ingenious the Viet Cong were. Had plenty of time to ask questions and were not rushed. Got to crawl through the tunnel and also have a go a shooting a pistol. If you haven't done it before, it is an experience!
We enjoy this Cu Chi Tunnel tour a lot. Long was a great tour leader. We got a total different view of what happen in the war. If anyone got the opportunity to go to the war museum after the tour please go. I can recommend the tour to everyone. The only thing that was a bit difficult is that we must phone 24 hours in advance to arrange the pickup point. We got only a data sim and some use wifi only. our previous tour leader arrange for us.
