Cu Chi Tunnels are among the top 7 most exotic destinations in Southeast Asia and are listed as one of the world’s coolest places by The New York Time. Cu Chi is located on the outskirts of Ho Chi Minh City, about 70km from the city. This tunnel is about 200 km long, built for use during periods of war. Currently, Cu Chi Tunnels is used as a war remnants museum.

1. The purpose of construction

Originally built during the war against the French colonialists (1945-1954), Vietnam revolutionary soldiers hid under the secret tunnels in the enemy’s rear, protected by the people. Those secret tunnels were constructed in many ways, but mostly under the ground, each of which had only one small lid for one person to move. When closing the lid of the cover, the enemies above ground had a difficult time detecting the tunnel entrances.

However, the downside of this secret tunnel is that Vietnamese soldiers were easily captured by the enemy or destroyed when detected. From there, it was thought that they should be extended into long tunnels with many ways out on the ground to shelter and fight the enemy while providing an escape from danger if need be.

2. The first tunnels

In Cu Chi, the first tunnels in 1948 were split in two communes: Tan Phu Trung and Phuoc Vinh An. At first, there were only short sections of simple structure used to hide documents, weapons, shelter staff operating in enemy territory. From 1961 to 1965, the guerrilla warfare of the people in Cu Chi caused great losses to the enemy, helping to defeat the “special war” strategy of the United States by “using Vietnamese to fight against Vietnamese”. Then, six communes in northern Cu Chi District completed the “backbone” tunnel to create a continuous system.

In the period of anti-imperialist invasion of Vietnam, the Cu Chi Tunnels were most active in early 1966. By 1967, at the time of the American invasion of Cedar Falls, it had reached a total length of about 250 km.

In the present, the complex multi-layered tunnels still remain the same as during the war with hidden hatches and tunnels, connecting underground passages between basements.

3. Structure of Cu Chi Tunnels

In the tunnel system, each of the different locations has specially closed gates used to stop the enemy or toxic gas. All tunnels have secret vents to the ground and are very discreetly camouflaged.

The anti-infantry system was densely interwoven at the entrances to ensure safety. During the war, it could contain an army or be full of the village’s residents, which helped the Vietnamese protect many lives.

Cu Chi Tunnels were not only used for combat and conflict, they also housed the factory workers who provided weapons and war equipment. It had stockpiles of firearms, ammunition and explosives of all kinds, food and materials, battlefield facilities, smoke free kitchens (Hoang Cam kitchen), hospitals for the wounded, and bedrooms and shelters for women, children and the elderly.

15. Safety

With a total length of 200km, only a part of the tunnel has been maintained and controlled by the management so there are still many places out of the reach of the guides.

Mui Ne has no airport, so your best bet is to depart from Ho Chi Minh City. Drive a car or motorbike, you can rent one, or take the longer, but cheaper option of a bus.

Drive to Mui Ne

Watch your speed because there are a lot of police hiding with cameras and will ticket you for only a few kilometers over. Even if you obey the traffic laws, expect police might pull you over and demand money, up to millions of dong, just for driving. It’s corrupt! Best way to handle this is to pretend you understand nothing he says. Don’t speak english.

Bus to Mui Ne

You can take for a motorbus for only 130,000 VND one way (about $7).  Book with FUTA Bus Lines on Phuong Trang  bus in District 1 Quận, 1 Backpacker St, 272 Duong Đề Thám, Phạm Ngũ Lão, Quận 1, Hồ Chí Minh. It’s a large bus company available everywhere in Vietnam.

There are two choices you can have seating bus and laying bus. The spacious buses are very comfortable with good AC and Wifi. The driver and staff are also known to be very friendly. The ride is bumpy and noisy because of the bus horn, which is a necessity when driving in Vietnam.

The trip takes 5.5 hours one-way withe bus from Saigon to Mui Ne. In route the bus will stop two times on the way there and back, for around 15 minutes, so you get  some food, drink or go to the restroom. The Sleeper Bus has reclining seats that nearly go all the way back, allowing you to rest along the way. It has two floors, however, it’s really one floor with bunk-bed style seating. The bus will drop off right to your hotel.

Long Xuyen – Floating Market & 5 Things To Do

Long Xuyen is a relatively small city in the Mekong Delta and is best known for the Long Xuyen floating market. It is also a good base for exploring An Giang, one of the most authentic and most beautiful provinces of the delta.

Long Xuyen floating market

The main reason for most travelers to visit Long Xuyen is the floating market. It is one of the least touristy floating markets in the Mekong Delta and therefore feels wonderfully local and authentic.

To see the Long Xuyen floating market at its peak, you need to get up early, because the market starts at 5 in the morning and after 9 it gets a lot quieter. The market is held on a two-kilometer stretch on the Hau River. It’s no surprise that a boat trip is the best way to visit the floating market.

The market is busiest in the early morning hours. Although not as big as the Cai Rang floating market, you can sometimes find hundreds of boats trading various local products such as fruits, vegetables, flowers and fish. It is a unique sight how boats moor against each other to negotiate about the products they sell on board.

If you are not traveling with a tour, you can negotiate a boat trip to the floating market at the pier in Long Xuyen city. You can often combine this with a follow-up trip through the small canals. Breakfast on the floating market is also possible.

5 things to do in Long Xuyen

The Long Xuyen Floating Market may be its most famous attraction, but there is plenty to do in and around the city. Fortunately, because after a visit to the market you still have a lot of time left.

1. Bang Lang Stork Sanctuary

Bang Lang Stork Sanctuary is in the same province as Can Tho city, but is actually closer to Long Xuyen. About 700,000 storks come here every year to breed and raise their young. Especially around sunrise and sunset it is an impressive sight to see thousands of storks leave their nest (morning) or come back (evening).

2. Ta Pa: Lake, temple & mountain

Around 50 km from Long Xuyen you will find Ta Pa mountain, this is one of the seven mountains in An Giang, even though it is more like a hill. In the otherwise completely flat Mekong Delta, these hills are very striking. At the bottom of the hill is the Ta Pa pagoda, that is built in the local Khmer style. From here it is about 400 meters to the top. The road to the top of the hill is quite bad and difficult, so it can only be reached by motorbike or on foot. There is also a lake next to the hill, which is not impressive in terms of size, but the jade green water and the beautiful location make it well worth a visit.

3. Tra Su

When you drive towards Chau Doc from here, you will pass Tra Su. This submerged forest has a unique biodiversity and a boat trip through the forest which is half underwater feels like you have ended up in a fairytale.

4. Palm field

5. Tram Chim National Park

In Tram Chim National Park you will find a similar forest to Tra Su. This park is best known as one of the best places for bird watching in Vietnam. Take a wonderful boat trip through the mangrove, water lily fields and wetlands. Along the way you can enjoy the peace and quiet and try to spot as many birds as possible, many of which are on the list of protected species.

How to get there?

Long Xuyen is easily accessible from Ho Chi Minh City and Can Tho. There are direct buses from these cities.

From Ho Chi Minh City, the journey takes approximately 6 hours and the ticket price is between 90,000 VND to 150,000 VND depending on the type of vehicle.

From Can Tho you already have bus tickets from 30,000 VND. Many buses go that way and it takes just a short 30 minute ride.

Best time to visit

The rainy season takes from May to October, but the rain makes the landscape very green and beautiful. From November to April is dry season.
