Cu Chi Tunnels (Vietnam) Reviews
Newest Review: ... Once our leader had sorted our tickets we went down a steep manmade tunnel. I half expected there to be a maze of tunnels at the other side but instead we were faced with homemade bunker type buildings which we went into and watched a short (very pro vietnam) bias video which refered to the American war against Vietnam. It was a little boring for most people in the way it was presented. Our guide was amazing and explained in depth about the area, history and tunnels. In fact many people cae over to listen thinking he was staff from the Cy Chi! Next stop was to walk through the jungle area, looking at old bomb craters and getting to go ... more

I visited the Cu Chi Tunnels as part of Intrepids Vietnam Adventure 2 week tour. I had head great things from friends who had been and not being that knowledgable on the American/Vietnam war, I didn;t really know what to expect. On arriving in the car park our leader paid for our tickets at a both. I wasn;t told the cost, ut judging by every other tour I experience in Vietnam, it wouldn't of been very expensive. Whilst we waited I went to the toilets which were ok, nothign too grim, but as with all toilets in Vietnam, not the cleanest.

The Cu Chi Tunnels are about an hour and a half drive from central Ho Chi Minh City and I accessed them through a tour organised by my travel company. Prices vary, but US$22 seems typical for a half day (5 hour) tour including hotel pick up and drop off. The Cu Chi Tunnels were built during the American-Vietnam War by the Viet Cong (liberation army), there was apparently 120km of tunnels at different levels, which the Viet Cong used to traverse the area - they slept there, ate there and prepared for war there. When you arrive there are toilets (satisfactory) and a shop, before you walk to the main part of the tunnel museum. You walk through an underpass; the ... Read the complete review

About an hour's drive out of Ho Chi Minh City are the Cu Chi tunnels which the Vietcong used to conceal themselves during the war. The tunnels were not originally built for the war, but the Vietcong took them over as a means of hiding from the Americans, which they did mostly successfully for ten years or more. There are two sets of tunnels - one for foreign tourists and one for the Vietnamese. The tourist tunnels have been widened by 25cm, however I'm sure many of us now are about 25cm wider than most of the Vietcong 50 years ago so the ratio of person-to-tunnel is probably still quite similar to how it was back then. My boyfriend and I went to the tunnels on ... Read the complete review
