WELCOME TO CU CHI TUNNELS
Uncover the secrets of the Cu Chi Tunnels, a vast network of underground passageways built and used by the Viet Cong to evade detection as they moved troops and supplies throughout Saigon’s northern districts. Les Rives offers six informative tours to this historic site, which lies an hour outside of the southern hub, by boat, bicycle, vintage Vespa or motorbike. Learn about the tenacious and ingenious spirit of Vietnamese culture as you experience the area’s thriving commerce, quite open spaces and hidden trails.
