Description

Your day will begin with a pick up from your hotel in Ho Chi Minh at 8 AM.  

After a two-hour drive, you'll arrive at the Ben Duoc Tunnel system, which is five times bigger than the more frequently visited Ben Dinh system.

Ben Duoc receives far fewer tourists, and arriving there will feel like being back in the years of the American-Vietnam War. 

Your guide will show you around the site detailing what life was like here during the war. 

A collection of weapons, boobie traps, tanks, and helicopters are on display, and you will get a chance to crawl into the tunnels. 

The tubes have not been re-created or widened like the more visited part of the Cu Chi Tunnels, allowing for an authentic experience. 

Ben Duoc was the place of the headquarters where strategies and tactics were devised, and you will see rooms that were used for actual intelligence work. 

After a memorable day exploring this historic site, you will be treated to a delicious lunch by the banks of a whispering river.

Expect to arrive back at your hotel in Ho Chi Minh (Saigon) at 4 PM.
