Cu Chi tunnels tours

The Cu Chi tunnels in Ho Chi Minh city

In order to be protected from French occupation in the 1940s,  Communist guerrilla troops known as Viet Cong  dug tens thousands of miles of tunnels with their bare hands and simple tools and further expanded during the American War in the 1960s. Located 75 kilometres northwest of Ho Chi Minh city, the Cu Chi tunnels are an elaborate underground network made up of 250 km of tunnels and chambers in the town of Cu Chi. This huge network underground tunnels in Viet Nam which has been preserved by the Viet Nam government and has become a popular tourist attraction.

This sketch of tunnels provides a sense of how the underground network worked

The tunnels were used as hiding spots during Viet Nam war by Viet Cong soldiers and were also a base of operation to transfer communications, supplies, foods and weapons for the Viet Nam army. They also used the underground to continue practising their daily life such as eating, sleeping, having a plan for their attacks, healing their sick, teaching children and even giving a birth.

The tunnels today

The tunnels have been converted into a large war memorial complex consisting of two main display sites at Ben Dinh and Ben Duoc. The Ben Duoc site contains part of the original tunnel system, while the Ben Dinh site features reconstructions that provide tourists with a fascinating experience of what the tunnels must have been like.

Visitors can take a half or full-day trip from Ho Chi Minh city, or they sometimes combined with a cruise along the Mekong Delta or Saigon River.

How to get there

It takes about 40 minutes from HCM to the tunnels, so there are numerous tour operators that run a half-day guided tour of this underground.

Or it is possible for you to go there independently by taking bus No13 at 23/9 station (but a tour guide is needed to enter the tunnels)

Before you go

 Think twice because you have to weaving through the darkness, heat, stuffy feeling and have a sense of what it has been like during the war.

  • Check the weather, dry season (December to April) is highly recommended because of lower humidity and fewer bugs.
  • Wear comfortable clothes and shoes in order to crawl in the tunnels.
  • Bring insect repellent.

Which activities

  • Having an opportunity to enjoy a short film of Cu Chi tunnels before entering the underground so that tourists have a deeper understanding of how this complex system works.
  • Giving it a try to fire an M16 rifle at the shooting site (payment is required).
  • Enjoying some kinds of local food.
