Full-day Cu Chi tunnels trip by bike
Enjoy a day in the countryside
Flexibility to customize the bike route
Round trip transfer from your Ho Chi Minh City hotel
Begin with 8am pickup at your Ho Chi Minh City hotel, and travel into the countryside in a private minivan. The length of the bike trip depends on your preference: with help from a guide, choose a route that ranges from 9 miles to 22 miles (15 km to 40 km), so you can spend the morning riding at your own pace.
Follow a scenic route that makes use of quiet, rural trails, with the chance to see daily life in the Vietnam countryside. You'll also ride through a rubber plantation, where long lines of rubber trees are marked with deep slashes from repeated harvests.
Upon arrival at Cu Chi, visit a local restaurant for lunch, then continue to the tunnel network, which was the home base for the Viet Cong's 1968 Tet Offensive. Many of the entrances to the Chu Chi tunnels are through camouflaged trap doors, and the narrow tunnels are just large enough to pass through, but many North Vietnamese soldiers lived in the tunnel system during the war. After visiting the tunnels, make the return trip to Ho Chi Minh City by van, where this tour concludes with drop-off at your hotel.
