+ The Cu Chi tunnels - The Cu Chi tunnels are 1.5 hour drive away from Ho Chi Minh City. The Cu Chi Tunnels are a maze of interlinked tunnels that were built by the Viet Cong during the Vietnam War. Theses tunnels were barely one meter high and ran 80 cms across and were used as supply routes, kitchens hospitals and training facilities. Theses tunnels were instrumental in winning the Vietnam War as these tunnels formed an effective base for the Viet Cong while launching guerrilla attacks. The area had literary become a “free fire zone” during the Vietnam War as the American carpet bombed the area. The Viet people answer was to literally take everything underground.
