Landmark
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.

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • This tunnel complex is a true testimony of the willpower of the Vietnamese people to claim their independence and unite their country. Walking through the tunnels is an experience that should be on everyone's list when visiting the DMZ. The 30 minute movie is a nice addition, all though the English translation could do with a few touch-ups.
