Spreading below Ho Chi Minh City, Cu Chi Tunnels connect to a broader network of tunnels that served the Viet Cong during the war against the United States. North Vietnamese fighters used the dark, insect- and disease-infested tunnels to avoid aerial attacks, hide, move troops and supplies, plan battles, and launch attacks. After the U.S. realized the importance of the tunnels to Viet Cong military strategy, it led a series of campaigns to infiltrate, bomb, and destroy them, a feat that proved largely unsuccessful. Numerous tour operators run visits to the tunnels; prepare for cramped spaces.

  • A must visit here in Vietnam. The reminiscents of war. How they fought on those tough conditions. They had nothing to lose.

  • This site is a great destination for family or friends outdoor activity, a bit of a drive out of city center, lots of things to see and learn. You can really spend a good half day walk around and explore or follow some random groups with tour guides, though I am not sure if there are English-speaking tour guide available but you can ask. I enjoy how many trees and plants this place have preserved. Definitely a short fun and interesting trip, with lots of things to see, and try some of the local food too. And make sure to bring mosquito repellent!
  • I do like this place but I went today.2/12/21. I was the only foreigner there. The guide bad mouth America the whole time. I don't agree with the war but I also don't agree with talking bad about America. I had nothing to do with the war and love Vietnam but this was not good and in bad taste. I noticed some Vietnamese in my group looking at me with angry looks. Vietnam won their independence from several countries. China, Japan, France, even Cambodia. American Gov't was to blame not the citizens.
