Leaving Saigon we drive through pleasant countryside before arriving at Cu Chi. Before entering the
tunnels we watch a short introductory video showing how the tunnels were constructed. We then
spend the next hour exploring the maze of tunnels. Also on display are various mantraps and the
remains of an American tank as well as numerous bomb craters made by 500 pound bombs dropped
by B52 bombers. We then drive back to Ho Chi Minh City arriving at approximately 1pm.
