Landmark Tourist Spot
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.

  • We, family of 4 (2 kids of 4 yr and 1 yr old), have brought a visit to here in July 2017. It was quiet there. We are at exit 3 in there gone through exit 4 and 10, we walked through the tunnels. Via exit 10 you can along the beach (take swimsuit and sunscreen) back to the exit/entrance. For our oldest son was interesting, exciting and the dolls in the tunnel Eng. these tunnels are more than worth a visit.

  • It was oppressive to see how they had to life at the time and how these people were forced by the situation to dig and life in these tunnels. But on the same time it was fascinating to how they handle...  more »
  • If you are in Vietnam you have to visit these Tunnels. Amazing, thought provoking and a living history that you can walk through. Walking through the Tunnels, hearing the stories really brings history...  more »

  • Great visit, 40k entry, you visit the museum first (I recommend taking a photo on your phone of the map of the tunnels while you're in the museum so you can navigate underground!) Then you head off into the tunnels. I am 5'4 and could only just stand straight in most of it. There are signs that direct you through the main tunnels but we chose to see all of it, it took us about 2 hours to explore every little tunnel and exit! Was super fun, nice and cool in the tunnels so good for a hot day. We parked outlet motorbikes by the entrance for 10k each, which is the going rate for parking anywhere really. Bring snacks and drinks! There are loads of stalls there selling drinks etc. But of course it's really overpriced! Have fun!
  • A must see historical site that played a pivotal role in the daily lives of the vietnamese. Stunning and emotional at the same time. We caught for DMZ tour from hue for 360,000 but actually the day was really dragged out and this was the only place worth seeing. I recommend renting a bike and just coming here on your own. Entrance fee is 40,000.
  • Pretty cool. I'd recommend anyone traveling vietnam to go visit this place just to get some idea of what the people went through in the war. Very impressive and pretty grim at the same time.
  • With 40k vnd to access. The place is so differrent than many place I had come. It show that vietnamese is so great. I like it
  • The eighteen months to build this is impressive. A good place to check out if to are in the area. There are pepper plantations all around this area. As well as peanuts. Worth getting some.
