Hi travellers!

The Cu Chi Tunnels are an immense network of underground tunnels located in Ho Chi Minh, Saigon. Today the tunnels are preserved and converted into a memorial complex. Here you can learn first hand what it was like during wartime in Vietnam. See how soldiers lived and what tactics were implemented during the war. The tunnels were used by Viet Cong soldiers during combat as well as for housing, hospital, food, and more.

I’m a bit claustrophobic and wasn’t able to climb through too much of the tunnel. But that tunnel was expanded for tourists, back then the soldiers were climbing on their bellies. The conditions of war is rough and it is very difficult for us to grasp what it was like with the present day historical site. But I hope the video provides you with some educational context and encourages you to come here to experience & learn for yourself. Respects to all the soldiers, both Vietnamese and American, that fought in this conflict.

If you’re coming to Ho Chi Minh, I absolutely recommend coming here. This is an important historic site to visit!

If you’ve made it this far, please help give the videos a thumbs up, thank you!

  1. Are you against guns or something is that why you didn't try it's not a big deal my wife is from China and a communist of course but I'm American and a gun lover and she realizes now guns are not a big deal at all and even shoots with me more so to get out of the house and go do something with me she is not a gun lover but it's not something she is scared of and not a big deal to her so what I'm getting at is you don't know until you try it just give it a try go to a shooting range and try shooting a gun you will se there is nothing to it

  2. Is it also ok to do chu chi tunnel diy? How much is the entrance fee many thanks for your kind response.. Love your videos 🙂

  4. Hi TJ, may i ask where did you book the tour in Cu Chi Tunnel with sunny? Thank you so much!

    Your videos are helpful for us first timers in Saigon by the way. ☺️

  5. well all i can say is my husband was in them tunnels in the nam war/conflict what ever you want to call it. he was a tunnel rat, after 196 tunnels he came home safe. war is never easy. no matter who it is. but when you are called to duty. you do what you are ordered to do.

  6. I've been to Cu Chi once. I crawled into the tunnel and discovered what claustrophobia was. I yelled "I'm getting the hell out! Back out!" I can't imagine living underground. I passed on the shooting range too! I did by a bottle of snake wine. It sits in my kitchen after almost 20 years!

  7. My tourist side is like "wow that is awesome, I'd really enjoy seeing that stuff"…
    While my overly patriotic American side is like "a flamethrower would be best to deal with those tunnels".

  8. You should not say ‘Vietnam War’ while in Vietnam. You should say ‘American War’ instead. You may have problems if you sat VW . After all it was America’s War

  9. Sup TJ, I’ve been watching many travel vlogs in order to get tips for my own launch soon, and yours is so great! I love your style and you seem to be just as weird as me (that’s a compliment I promise). Keep it up and I hope to produce videos as great as this! 👍🏼

  10. I'm watching dis on my dads account like twenty vids and you in this vid like you:little air holes so they can breath. Me: you be a great touris😘😘😉😉😉😉😉😉😉

  11. In 2005 or so, My Vietnamese brother in law arranged a private tour of Cu Chi tunnels. The tour guide was a young man dressed as a Viet Cong that as a Vietnam vet got my attention! The scarf and even the "Ho Chis" sandals made of car tires.
    He spoke perfect English and he told me his father had been VC in the area and was killed by American soldiers. He exhibited no resentment, anger or hatred to me. The indomitable spirit of Vietnamese, in historical times to date, always impresses me.
    I had no idea of the complexity and cleverness of the tunnels. And being a big guy, banging around on the clay walls was like concrete and to think it was all hand dug.
    I passed on firing the AK, had enough shooting during the war. I would recommend taking a short walk to the Buddhist Temple there. Two things surprised me. First was statue of Ho Chi Minh as you walk in. The next thing put me in emotional shock. Five MILLION placards on the walls of names, dates and villages of Vietnamese who died from the war from 1950 to 1975.
