Daily (8:00am – 14:30pm)
The meeting point is at TNK Travel office (but you can be picked up at your hotels/residences on your request). Then, leave the heart of downtown for Cu Chi. It takes approximately 1.5 hours on the bus to reach the destination.
Upon arrival in Cu Chi, have a short introduction of the Cu Chi Tunnels via a documentary video. The video is a brief film showing the process of making the legendary tunnels and how the people struggled to survive the hard conditions of the war era.
After that, it is time to discover the allotted zones of the underground tunnel system, embracing the special structured living areas (bedrooms and kitchens) and martial facilities (weapon storage facilities, field hospitals, and command centers helping whoever lives inside the tunnels meet their basic needs). Additionally, enter another special zone where there are many hidden trap doors and dangerous traps within the maze-like tunnels for security purpose during the war.
Sip tea and enjoy cassava which is supposed to be the staple food of the Vietnamese guerillas in the war. It will help you understand more the life of famine at that time. Have a break to relax or try your shooting skill at the firing range (you will get a chance to fire a real gun). Come back to Saigon and complete the trip.
TNK Travel organizes 2 trips to the tunnels every day.
