The rubbish cart and the rubbish collector.

The other entrance to our hotel.

The journey from the city to the Cu Chi Tunnels took about 1½ hours.

The car park.

The ticket booth.

The area right outside the toilets.

The entrance.

Stickers to our upper chest.

First stop, the briefing room where

the history and structure of the Cu Chi tunnels are explained.

10.22 am – One of the few crowded areas.

Demonstration by the tourist guide.

So cool!!!!!

My turn!!!!!!!!!!!!!

so cool!!!!!!!!!!!

Hahahahaha!!!

One of the many entrances to the underground tunnels.

A trap.

Scary stuff.

Another entrance but very small and narrow, meant for the soldiers at war who were pretty thin due to malnutrition.

A fake entrance meant to confuse the enemy.

Women soldiers were usually tasked to guide the soldiers into the tunnels.

Air vents made to look like an ant hill.

Super tiny holes.

10.40 am – Walk, walk, walk.

Climbed up the big ass tank.

    1. Bus no. 152 from airport, do you mean we need to walk to domestic area to catch this bus? Where does this bus stop at town?
    2. Local tour to Cu Chi tunnel. What is the price of your tour, and can you provide me their email or contact?
    Thanks of your help. Melissa
