cycling-tours-Oriental-Colours.jpgYou will be picked up at hotel at around 8 a.m and then transfered by van to rural Cu Chi area. We will then start biking on a dirt track road through villages, where you can experience villagers going about their daily life, doing farm work, making bamboo furniture and other handicrafts. We will make a stop at a family workshop producing rice paper.
Cu chi is not only an underground hiding place, but also a living area for the Vietnamese guerillas during the Vietnam War from 1965 to 1975. Today, Cu Chi District has become very popular with tourists coming by bus, but not often by bicycle. Biking on country roads and single track trails through villages is the ultimate way to see the ""Iron Land”. Your lunch will be served at riverside restaurant.
During the tour you will be introduced to many kinds of booby traps used during Vietnam War. We will discover the Cu Chi tunnels, which is a tunnel network that is more than 120 km in length. We will take time to explain the methods of creating, maintaining and living in these tunnels as well as the special technique of hiding smoke invented by the guerrillas. The visit also includes visiting different type of underground halls, secret working, meeting rooms. You will spend an hour experiencing the tunnels with a guide. Afterwards, we enjoy tea and cassava (guerrilla’s food during the war). Before finishing the tour, you can watch a short (15 minutes) documentary about the tunnels. We will then finish the tour and get back to Ho Chi Minh City by van.
