For many cruises, HCMC is the first dock in Vietnam, so we are well equipped to collect you and take you to the incredible network of war bunkers known as the Cu Chi Tunnels. These networks are a reminder of the ingenious designs needed to survive in these tight-squeezing tunnels during war-torn times. Opt to crawl through the 100m tunnels to get a feel for what the soldiers had to endure, or simply walk around the scenic site, taking in the historical and cultural importance of this war remnant. Discover the kitchens hidden around the tunnels and sample the food the Viet Cong ate during the war. Nowadays the tunnels have been widened slightly for tourists, so it won’t be such a tight squeeze! This experience offers an inspiring insight into human perseverance and the challenges of war.

The museum is a favourite with tourists as it offers never-before-seen material and an entirely alternate perspective. The Requiem gallery is the gem of this Museum, where you can see historic photos taken by famed international war photographers such as Tim Page or Larry Burrows. Although sometimes upsetting, the display is essential for understanding the horrors of the Vietnam War, but also the endurance and perseverance of a nation.
