Morning, meet your guide and transfer about 75 km North-west of downtown Ho Chi Minh City. Discover the famous Cu Chi Tunnels, which were once a major underground hideout and resistance base of Viet Cong forces during the two wars against the French and the Americans. The tunnels, entirely hand-dug, formed a highly intricate network of interlinked multilevel passageways at times stretched as far as the Cambodian border and totaling over 120 km in length. Its complexity was beyond imagination containing meeting rooms, kitchens, wells, clinics, schools, depots, trenches and emergency exits all aimed for guerrilla warfare. The tunnels were deep and strong enough to withstand destructive bombings and self-contained enough to outlast prolonged sieges. From here, we’ll settle in for the seven-hour journey across the border to Cambodia and arrive in Phnom Penh in time for dinner and drinks. This city is teeming with motorbikes and the sound of haggling vendors, so the graceful, tree-lined boulevards and riverfront promenades are a reminder of simpler times.
