The Cu Chi Tunnels in Vietnam became legendary during the 1960’s when they played a vital part in the American War, allowing the Viet Cong, with a network of over 200 km of tunnels which by 1965 included hospitals, schools, meeting rooms, kitchens and sleeping quarters, to control a large rural area close to Ho Chi Minh City.

In their heyday, the tunnels were functioning underground cities. Tours can be easily arranged to take you on a fascinating tour around the Cu Chi Tunnels where you’ll learn more about the conditions the Vietnamese people lived in, the hardships they faced and the amazing ingenuity employed to maintain life in the tunnels.
