    Cu chi tunnels - 1 Day Culinary Cu Chi Private Tour



    Join us for an unforgettable day exploring the suburban villages of Vietnam, where we will experience the daily life of local farmers. Our adventure begins with a pick-up from your hotel at 7:30 am. We will then venture to the serene countryside, where we will witness the traditional methods of rice, herb, and mushroom cultivation. You will blend in with the local culture as you put on a traditional Vietnamese conical hat and join the farmers in harvesting herbs, vegetables, and mushrooms from the garden. You will truly feel like a part of the community as you learn about their farming techniques and way of life.


    Around 10:00, under the watchful eye of the chef, we will start learning how to prepare three traditional Vietnamese dishes and one dessert. We will also learn many interesting facts about the art of preparing healthy and balanced meals. The best moment of the day will be enjoying our DIY meal. This will be the “tastiest” part of our day.


    Next, we will make our way to the historic Cu Chi Tunnels Area. Our journey will start with a documentary movie that offers insight into the history of the area, with a room modeled after the meeting point of the Vietcong fighters. As we walk through the nearby jungle, you will discover how the guerrillas lived, fought, and outsmarted the enemies. You will also learn about the ingenious traps they used and other fascinating curiosities. You wouldn’t want to miss this unique and educational experience as we delve into the rich and riveting Cu Chi Tunnels.


    Finally, we'll try a traditional guerrilla meal and see how you can cook in a wood-fired kitchen, without producing visible smoke.

    Our day will finish at your hotel around 17:30 - 18:00, depending on traffic conditions.
