Walk along Vinh Moc Tunnel to explore former underground Vietnamese shelter. In order to save their lives, and avoid American bombers, people decided to dig, and move their village to 23m (75 feet) underground. Firstly, you walk through the first level, 12m (39 feet) deep, where you can see photographs of families who hid there. Then, continue to the second level, 15m (49 feet) deep, and see washing rooms, maternity rooms, health stations, operation room, meeting room, and the well. The deepest third level contains a well, and it served as a main shelter during bombing. On the walls read all the information about the villagers, and get out at the magnificent beach.

  • It's way bigger than Cu Chi Tunnel. Local guides are very friendly, guiding use throughout 3 levels of the tunnel. Definitely recommend, should visit to see how Vietnamese lived in the war back then.
  • Real detailed tunnel experience, not widely popular but it has great potential
