    Cu Chi Tunnels
    Stop: 2 hours - Admission included
    Situated 40 km away from Ho Chi Minh City, the Cu Chi tunnels consist of a vast and ingenious network of underground tunnels connecting living and cooking areas, storage facilities, weapons factories, field hospitals, command centers but also hundreds of trap doors, that played a strategic role in the resistance of the Viet Cong soldiers during the war, helping them to control a large rural area around Ho Chi Minh City.

What to Expect
After pickup from your Ho Chi Minh City hotel, journey by air-conditioned private vehicle to the Cu Chi Tunnels. On arrival, watch a short video presentation and learn how the Viet Cong used the 155-mile (250-kilometer) network of underground tunnels as command centers, ammunition stores, field hospitals, and war bunkers during the Vietnam War. Follow your guide on a tour of the tunnels and experience the fascinating site firsthand as you crawl into the tunnels, pose for photos peeking out of a camouflaged trapdoor, and see an old American army tank. You also have the option to visit the shooting range (own expense) and sample some traditional tea and boiled tapioca, a common wartime meal for soldiers. Your tour ends with drop-off at your Ho Chi Minh City hotel.

Booked this tour last minute based on the reviews here on TripAdvisor. The experience fell short of my expectations. The tour guide was soft-spoken and when combined with her average English, sometimes we could not understand her. We saw other groups and observed that we
