Cu Chi Tunnel – Underground Walks

Journalist of The World Geography had interesting experience in Cu Chi Tunnel and voted this building the 5th among 10 most breathtaking underground in the world.

“Crawl through a small trapdoor into narrow, stifling tunnels and enter an “underground village” with kitchen, dormitory, meeting room, and hospital. During the Vietnam War (1954-75) thousands of Viet Cong were based in the 125-mile (200-kilometer) network of tunnels. The “village” was never captured despite being bombed many times”, described The World Geography.
Cu Chi Tunnel is a defense system in the underground, located in Cu Chi district, Ho Chi Minh City. This project was initiated construction in 1940 in the war against French enemy and it lies at the end of Ho Chi Minh path. Currently, this tunnel is an alluring destination for the tourists to visit and discover one history period of Vietnam.
