Cu Chi Tunnels
Take a special way heading west to visit the network of Cu Chi Tunnels: a speed boat. This means of transportation brings comfort and relaxation on cruise instead of sneaking hard out of daily traffic jam in the morning. The network became legendary during the 1960s for its role in facilitating Viet Cong control of a large rural area only 30km to 40km from HCMC. History, the tunnels were built over a period of 25 years beginning in late 1940s. They were the improvised response of a poorly equipped peasant army to its enemy’s high-tech ordnance, helicopters, artillery, bombers and chemical weapons. A first glance there is little evidence here to indicate the intense fighting, bombing and destruction that occurred during the war. To see what went on, you have to dig deeper underground! What lies beneath is worth your visit and time.
End of service.
