Cu Chi Tunnels – (A)

Cu Chi used to be a bitter battleground for many years during the Vietnam War. Visitors to our country can not miss a visit to this “underground village” with the intricate network of over 200 km tunnels.

Just 70km northwest of Saigon, the Cu Chi area lies at the end of the Ho Chi Minh Trail and was the base from which Vietnamese guerillas used to attack Saigon. The residents of Cu Chi took their war underground, literally, developing a network of tunnels that, at its height, stretched as far as Cambodia and included meeting rooms, kitchens, and triage areas -  an effective network for waging guerella warfare on nearby U.S. troops.

It may be incredible if you don’t experience a short, exciting trip trough this labyrinth of interfaced tunnels. Then challenge yourselves with the rifle shooting range (optional with surcharge).

Great location in District One - close to lots of bars and restaurants.
The room at the side had a view but was quiet and very comfortable and clean. The breakfasts were lovely; there was a menu to choose from and a waiter bought it to your table. The restaurant and decor downstairs was very nice; a little quaint and artistically designed. The staff were very friendly and helpful. It is situated in District one and we walked everywhere, it is close to lots of good restaurants, bars and museums. Good value for money. Stayed April 2013, traveled as a couple.
