Depart for a 2-hour drive northwest of Saigon to the network of underground passageways that run to more than 120 km in total length – Cu Chi Tunnels. The complex was hand-dig by Viet Cong during Vietnam War and used as a secret living area to protect them from the French air and ground sweeps. Much of the original tunnel system was destroyed in bombing raids during the 1970s but existing parts have been restored and opened as a poignant and fascinating reminder. A visit to this underground village will provide you better understanding of the harsh life people went through during the bloody war. After tunnel tour, drive to visit a local cricket farm afterwards, get to know how people raise crickets and scorpions, enjoy some specialties such as deep fried crickets, cricket salad, etc. Drive back to Saigon.
