The Cu Chi Tunnel ComplexMonday, October 13, 2014
We'll not everyone braved the small tunnel complex especially those with bigger body frames because the entrance is just too small. The size of the tunnel can fit a small adult person in crawling position. I hope you get the picture. If you're really interested to know what I mean, try googling 'cu chi tunnel complex' to get a view of how it looks like.
WHAT'S THIS TUNNEL ABOUT?
The tour company gave us a discount from the original price of 150,000 VND to 120,000 VND (tour bus ride only to Cu Chi tunnel) because we are a group of 4 people. The entrance to Cu Chi Tunnel is separate. You'll pay another 90,000 VND for it totalling to 210,000 VND per pax. This is by far cheap compared to booking the tour online as it may get 3 times more pricey. If you are not in a rush, I suggest you to book the tour at Pham Ngu Lao Street as there lots of tourist shops around the area.
THE FIRST STOP
THE TUNNEL COMPLEX
Yay!! I've survived! I felt like singing, "First I was afraid, I was petrified..." Ahahah! One bucketlist down baby!
Our tour culminated with a 19-forgotten black and white crappy video during the wartime. The tour took us 6 hours from 1pm - 7pm. I suggest you to buy some light snacks before doing the tour just to make tummy happy. There's also a firing range at the area for interested tourists who wanted to try it as well as souvenir shops.
