Visitors can choose to see defense works, secret underground shelters, offices, kitchen, fish ponds, guest house, minefield hidden in forests with lots of swamps, zigzag channels, wild grass fields by walking or by boat. Tourists will see less if they choose to go by boats driven by nice local female tour guides in the traditional Vietnamese Ao ba ba top and bottom sets. The plus of this choice includes enjoying a fun ride in narrow channels and the introduction in detail about the items on the way. The boats are called “xuồng ba lá”, each can host 3-4 persons, the fee is VND 15,000/person. Tourists can not stop at a place as long as they would like if they join a group. The other choice is walking on the path built for tourists to see the remarkable and valuable works on the way.
