Cu Chi Travel GuideEdit This The best resource for sights, hotels, restaurants, bars, what to do and see
Cu Chi district is the centre of a network of 200 kilometres of underground tunnels used by resistance fighters during the war of liberation. The tunnels were built over a period of twenty-five years by Viet Minh in their fight against the French and repaired and extended by Viet Cong while they were fighting the South Vietnamese and American forces. The tunnels incorporated all the amenities required to sustain life underground including kitchens, hospitals, recreation areas and sleeping quarters. The site has a museum with many photographs and a documentary film describing the role the tunnels played during the war and how they have fought against American troops. Cu Chi is a great learning experience for all those who want to gain a greater understanding of the Vietnamese psyche.
