A trip to Vietnam would not be complete without seeing the Cu Chi Tunnels and understanding the Vietnam War. The Cu Chi Tunnels are an amazing piece of Vietnamese history, especially being one of the most important remnants of the war era.
Located 50 kilometers northwest of Ho Chi Minh City, this historical site is an elaborate underground network made up of 250km of tunnels and chambers in the town of Cu Chi. Visiting the Cu Chi Tunnels, you will get to see first-hand and up close how the Vietnamese soldiers fought for the country’s reunification.
Furthermore, you will have a chance to experience going through a real tunnel, get a deep insight into how the Vietnamese survived living inside the tunnels for years, and understand their high-level determination and undaunted fighting spirit despite the carpet-bombings and tanks.
