Must visit place!
Very educational, definitely worth having a guide to explain the history. Great fun firing the weapons used during the war.
Amazing, I would 100 % recommend doing a tour here. Bought tickets through to get your guide. Booked a company called joy journeys they take you to a less touristy tunnel location a little bit further out but we’ll worth it. Small group of only 10 people
Historyczne miejsce warte odwiedzenia,można poznać kawał historii
A must to understand what happened during the terrible war! A great historical evidence of how the Vietnamese fought the US army and won!

Love this place. Go with a good guide. Learn lots of things. Get squeezed in tunnels.
Great place. Lots of history of war. Definitely go for shooting range. Do not carry any empty bullet shells or toys made of shells. Airport security will not let you through.

I did enjoy it, but dont go there with a big tour group.
So much to learn about the history of Vietnam, it can be a bit overwhelming too. Great place to visit if you like learning about history.

Amazing experience. Worth the trip. For people like me with 1.83m sometimes a little challenge in the tunnels
전쟁 당시 치열했던 상황을 알 수 있었어요.
So impressive and learnt a lot about how clever the build really was
Nice historical place
Rất hay!
Molt recomanable. Nosaltres vam fer una visita ràpida de 1h30', però dona per a estar.s.hi tres o quatre hores. I a pàrquing guardat per a les motos i cotxes. S'ha de pagar entrada per accedir al recinte i dona access gratuït als túnels, després s'ha de pagar per a fer les diferents activitats en cas de que es vulguin fer... tirolina, cinema, piscina, kaiak...

Interested. Great time for try with the gun AK 47
Awesome experience. A must visit place to see the tunnels built by the Vietnamese army. Must try visiting all the tunnels.
호치민 최고의 경험이었어요 정말 힘들긴 했는데 베트남이 이긴 이유를 알것 같더라구요. 베트남 사람 대단하다는 생각들었어요 호치민에 여행간다면 힘들어도 한번은 가보길 추천합니다
Phenomenal. The history of this place is so fascinating and surrounded by beautiful jungle. The tunnels are still accessible to visitors with a live firing range ($2 per round) which we didn't use but witnessed. You can fire AK or M15 from the range so it's fun if you've never tried ! Lunch is incredible with fresh food and drink.
Fantastic attraction, must visit.
OK ở đây rất đẹp và hữu tình
I’m old enough to remember the Vietnam War on TV news when I was a kid so this outdoor museum has some additional relevance to me. Seeing the area know as the Iron Triangle with the bomb craters and tunnels that you can experience is interesting and a lesson in how tenacious the Viet Cong were and how frightening it must have been to be a U.S. soldier in this jungle. Certainly a piece of history. You can also shoot an AK-47 or a 50 Cal. Machine Gun on the range after your tunnel tour. The ammunition is SUPER expensive at about $2.50 U.S.D per round and on full auto - That goes real fast.

Это было интересно. Но чтобы лазать по тоннеля нужно нормальное здоровье и желательно небольшой рост.
Today is the second time I have visited this place, still admiring how well the Vietnamese army built this underground hideout.
Tuyệt vời, vô cùng đẹp và chuyên nghiệp
