Additionally, both on the surface and within the tunnels, visitors will encounter minefields, battle trenches, trapdoors, and bunkers.

These tunnels cover a vast area of up to 100 hectares (compared to Ben Dinh's 17 hectares), so electric vehicles are provided for convenient transportation within the site.


Tourists can also combine their visit with the Ben Duoc Martyrs' Memorial, a renowned destination often paired with the tunnels. Here, visitors can pay their respects to the heroes who bravely sacrificed for our nation's independence and territorial integrity. Upon leaving the Ben Duoc Cu Chi Tunnels, tourists can use electric vehicles to explore the liberated areas surrounding the tunnels.

Many tourists wonder why they only get to visit Ben Dinh and not Ben Duoc. This is primarily due to the longer distance and higher costs associated with traveling by high-speed boat to Ben Duoc. Additionally, Ben Duoc has fewer tour guides or informative materials available, making it less visited. These are the reasons why most tourists tend to explore Ben Dinh rather than Ben Duoc.

If you get the chance to travel to Saigon, make sure to visit the Ben Duoc Cu Chi Tunnels to appreciate the unique tunnel structure and witness the heroic spirit of our people in their fight for freedom!
