Out of Saigon - Cu Chi Tunnels, Ho Chi Minh City
The tunnels give you an unbeleivable perspective of what conditions the people of Vietnam (as well as Americans) faced during the war. It is amazing to be able to climb through the very same passageways that were used to fight our soldiers (if you're American that is). You'll leave with an appreciation of what both sides experienced during that long conflict. One of the most fascinating things about the tour is that before being led through the tunnels (normally by a soldier who fought during the war), you are given a screening of an anti-US propaganda video on the tunnels. It is a very interesting experience to say the least.
Cu Chi Tunnel. The famous underground tunnel networks that caught many American soldiers unguarded. Brilliant military masterpiece!!! Thats how low tech fighters fight off high tech bully.
for only $9/pax, you'll get a half day (8am-2pm) tour with roundtrip transfers, tour guide, entrance fee to the tunnel, and a light snack.
Experience how the VC hid under the tunnels. Interesting but yet eerie at the same time while walking in the tunnels. Watch out for your head!
Wax statues featured prominently on the tour. These figures were here to greet us and display the uniforms of the VietCong. Wish I can wear that cloths so maybe can't recognise me...:P
This is one of the trap that they use for Vietnam war...inside of this trap all is bamboo with sharp shape, and when man fall into the trap, will suffer till death.
Finally got to Cu Chi tunnels, taking my 18 year old nephew, interesting in historic way. But the highlight still is letting of a few rounds of an AK (if your into that sort of thing.

This picture shows one of the many entrances to the underground tunnel network. The opening is tiny, barely allowing one slim person to get in.
You will be able to understand why did the americans fail to defeat the viet congs in their last war. The sad thing is 3 million viets died during that war. what a proud country. I SALUTE YOU
Our guide tempted us to find the entrance.
He pointed at an open space of some 20 square meters... and no one could find the entrance.
He showed us why
On the south of Vietnam take the trip to Mekong river Delta, where you'll find the old remembers of american war like a Viet-Kong's tunnels, tanks and plans.
SuperJimmy was half the man he used to be... The entrance to the Cu Chi tunnels was really small,and I guess my hips are made for giving birth to children...
