Lunch at a local restaurant.
Afterward, we continue to the famous Cu Chi Tunnels, located 75 around kilometers North West of downtown Ho Chi Minh City.
The Cu Chi Tunnel systems had been created a long time back, from 1948 to assist Viet Minh in the combat against the French. And it was continuing built over 25 years later. It was an underground city with living areas, kitchens, storage, weapons factories, field hospitals, command centers…
Arrive at Cu Chi Tunnels (Ben Dinh) and proceed to an underground hut to watch a short documentary video and presentation about Cu Chi Tunnels during the wartime.
Afterward, you will have a soft walk into the jungle to visit the bomb craters, the countless traps, the secret entrance, the fighting bunkers, the air ventilation and the constructed living areas. For those interested, there is a chance to fire off an AK47, M16, Garand…with real bullets at the shooting range (on your own account). Furthermore, you can witness the rice-paper (spring roll skin) as well as the rice-wine production line and you can even try to go through the actual tunnel. Then, you will gather together to test tasting the steamed tapioca root which is the main staple food in Cu Chi during the war.
