This huge network of underground tunnels in Vietnam which has been presereved by the Vietnam government and has become a popular tourist destination as a war memorial.
The tunnels were used by Viet Cong soldiers as hiding spots during the Vietnam war, and were a base of operations for the Vietnam army.
As well as an underground hiding spot, the tunnels were used to transfer communications, supplies, food and weapons.
Viet Cong soldiers would also often live in the tunnels, sometimes remaining underground for days at a time.
Life in the tunnels was not good. The tunnels were full of dangerous animals and insects, and food, water and air was scarce.
A number of attempts were made by American bombers during the war to destroy the tunnels as they knew that the tunnels were a strong advantage for the Viet Cong.

What People Are Saying About Cu Chi Tunnels
Hello, I'm Faith from Malaysia. Let me share a little bit, All I can say is that I had an amazing experience during this tour, together with my partner. It was our first time in Vietnam and our first tour to Cu Chi Tunnel. We were both happy and amazed with the service provided during the day, very efficient with time, comfortable vehicle and ofcourse our tour guided by the funny MR Tiger!! =) He shared stories about histories of the tunnel, people and the country itself with us along the way when we're in the van and kept us awake with his jokes. The creation of those tunnels were amazing and we got the chance to enter them too, it was fun although we were tired but it was all worth it! I will definitely recommend friends and family to book this tour in the future! Thank You for the hospitality.
I highly recommend this tour! Experiences with the city tour in ho chi minh and cu chi tunnels combine in one day was amazing. It was a great way to be a part of the city. Ms Thao our guide was so sweet and knowledgeable. She helped us become more familiar with the culture and customs in addition to giving us some historical information.
If you are prepared for a long day, with quite some time of transportation between the sites, you will be rewarded with much very interesting things and activities. Both guide and chauffeur were really great. They informed us about the country, the history, the stories between the beautiful and interesting sites.
Our guide, Mr Phu, gave us a complete snapshot of the VN history in less than 1 hour! Very passionate!
