Cu Chi Tunnels Day Trip By Motorbike from Ho Chi Minh City
Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam
Explore the gorgeous Cu Chi tunnels in a different way by joining this Cu Chi Tunnels motorbike tour. We won’t go on the same route on classic Cu Chi Tunnels tour, but drive you through beautiful rice fields and forests for you to enjoy nice view and fresh air. After wandering the tunnels, it’s a big chance to visit a local house, enjoy delicious specialties and interact with the locals of Cu Chi, listen to their stories and history.
The motorbike driver and guide will pick you up at your hotel and depart from Saigon (Ho Chi Minh City) to Cu Chi (2 hour ride).
It’s chance for you to relax on the way from Saigon to Cu Chi. Just sit on the back of the motorbike and see the nice view in South Vietnam’s countryside. You can see lush orchards and green or yellow rice fields along the main roads. You can tell your guide to stop anywhere to take photos.
Then you will spend your time inspecting the tunnel site, visiting the gates, traps, underground hospitals, worship rooms, kitchens and bunkers, and going through a section of the tunnel. On display are booby traps, the remains of a US army tank and huge craters left by American B52 bombs. You will be able to admire lots of compelling photos and personal effects left behind. Our guide will tell you about war history and information about the tunnels. You also have a chance to crawl a short tunnel and it’s very interesting. You can try firing M-16, AK-47 and carbine rifle at the National Defence Sports Shooting Range (own expense).
It’s time to drive to a local house to experience Cu Chi people’s unique life. A meal with local specialties will be served. The host will tell you about their stories and more history of this heroic region. At the end of the tour, our guide will drive you back to your hotel.
