HCMC-CuChi-MeKong DelTa-HCMC

The famous tunnel network that survived intense Vietnam War bombings by the U.S. is among world’s best underground tours.

The Hong Kong-based South China Morning Post (SCMP) has listed the Cu Chi Tunnels in Ho Chi Minh City among the top seven tunnel tours in the world.

Lying around 70 kilometers (43 miles) northwest of downtown HCMC, the Cu Chi Tunnels are an enduring symbol of Vietnamese resistance and bravery during the Vietnam War.

The complex of tunnels is now a global landmark that receives millions of visitors ever year.

The 250-kilometer-long complex was built in the late 1940s and underwent intense bombardment by the Americans in the 1960s.

Today, the tunnels are preserved as a war memorial, attracting tourists from all over the world, curious to see what underground life was at that time.

While the more intrepid visitor is invited to try squeezing through a very small section of the tunnels in their original form, most visitors will have to opt for a widened portion.
