Cu Chi Tunnels tour is a half day tour from Ho Chi Minh. There are morning or afternoon session. It cost 171,000VND and an extra 110,000 for entry fee to the tunnels.

|Heaps of different kind of traps|
|Inside tunnel is so dark and narrow. According to our tour guide, Vietnamese men in the past are pretty tiny that's why they are comfortably staying in the tunnels|
|Shooting trial. About 35,000-40,000VND for 10 bullets|
|Happy face, just before the hardship of coming out from the hole|
On the back, as the bus dropped some passengers at the back of Ben Thanh Market, we saw this Street Food Market. We quickly got off the bus although it wasn't our stop. This place is more interesting with our empty tummy were rumbling hard and we can worry how to get back to our hotel later. We totally made a great choice. This place is like a night market with lots of stalls seling range of Vietnamese and western from snacks to heavy meal.
