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
I've been to the tunnels before and this time was much busier. The guide did a great job finding space so he could tell us about what happened.
Fantastic tour! Well worth the experience. Our tour guide "Hi" was very knowledgeable and informative. Was great to meet other travellers along the way as well. Only advice would be to pack some snacks as lunch is not included.
You might find locals in Hanoi offering tours for less- but they'll be group tours where you're stuffed in a van with very little AC, and have less interaction with the Guide...foreigners screaming in 4 different languages. Here...Bao, our guide- spoke incredible English and was one of the highlights of our trip. This tour didn't ever seem to end...sun up to sun down, he was always showing us something different. Never lost energy at any point- and he probably does this every day!
Loved the fact that we were the only family Amazing lunch Relaxed trip around Mekong delta So much traffic makes time in car long but if you want to see both cu chi tunnels and Mekong delta in one day - this is a great trip
