    Visitors can , and many do when visiting the Tunnels at Cu Chi Military Complex , Fire live ammunition from a Kalashnikov AK 47 rifle , This rifle was the weapon of choice used by the North Vietnamese Liberation Army in their fight agains US and Allied forces....These are very reliable and were then., the most popular weapon used by the northern army..
    The cost of the chance to fire one of these is not cheap ,and is closely controlled by an army officer..

    Cu Chi Tunnels

    Me in hideout, Cu Chi Tunnels
    4 more images

    We drive from HCMC to take a morning tour of the famous Cu Chi Tunnels, which are 70km north west of the city. The tunnels formed an amazing underground command base for over 10,000 Viet Cong troops and were a major part of the 1968 Tet Offensive. Here you can also get the chance to fire real machine guns for a dollar a bullet! You can go through a few a the tunnels, see some of the traps used to deter the enemy and take some photos in the hideouts (if you can squeeze in!).

    As well as the tunnels, you can also fire various weapons such as an AK-47, M16, M60 or Magnum 44 where each bullet costs between 20-25,000 VND but for a minimum of 10 bullets.

    A tunnel

    If you go down to a restored and extended Vietkongs' tunnel, I think the shortest tunnel is enough. There is very hot, humid and also tight.

    B52 Bomb Crater

    This large crater was created by a bomb from an American B52 bomber when they carpet-bombed the area in the late 1960's. They managed to destroy substantial sections of the tunnels.
