The Cu Chi Tunnels, which highlight the dedication and ingenuity of Viet Cong soldiers during the Vietnam War, are a must-see destination in Southern Vietnam. On your half-day trip, you’ll spend the morning wandering this vast underground complex that was once buzzing with thousands of soldiers. The site is a startling contrast to today’s Vietnam, a fast-developing country where the legacy of war is almost forgotten. Let Buffalo Tours guide you on your exploration of the Cu Chi Tunnels during our tours!

Day 1: Ho Chi Minh City – Cu Chi Tunnels 
Begin your journey to the Cu Chi Tunnels by departing at around 8am from your hotel and travel through the countryside which was once a stronghold of the Viet Cong. Upon arrival, watch a short video about what life was like for soldiers who lived there during the war.  The cramped tunnels were central to a few of the war’s strategic operations, including the famous 1968 Tet Offensive, and they didn’t escape damage. American B52 bombers dropped hundreds of missiles leaving huge tell-tale craters behind. The tunnels served not only as living quarters, but as supply routes and hospitals for thousands of guerilla fighters. Many died there from malaria and other diseases, and a few were also born or married. Today they are viewed by some as a testimony to the Vietnamese people’s resiliency. 

Return to Ho Chi Minh City around 2pm, just in time to enjoy a late lunch at your hotel.
