Overview

After decades of conflict, Vietnam is littered with historic war sites. The Vietnam War had a major impact on millions of lives from both sides. It is no doubt that a trip to Vietnam would not be complete without paying a visit historic war sites of interest.

Cu Chi Tunnels were not only home for thousands of Viet Cong guerrillas, but it was also a complicated structure consisting of numerous trenches, bunkers, booby traps, bomb shelters and an amazing air ventilation system.

The Cu Chi tunnel network is an extensive labyrinth of underground tunnels stretching all the way to the Cambodian border. They were built over a period of some 25 years and initial construction began in 1948 by the Viet Minh during the war against the French. Soldiers cooked, ate, slept, worked, and even went to school in these tunnels as conflict raged above, not to mention that there were hospitals, theatres, schools, kitchens, all built into this extraordinary tunnel system.
