Continue on to the Cu Chi Tunnels. Local fighters built these during the Indochina conflict as a base from which the Viet Cong could operate. This network of over 200 kilometers of tunnels became legendary during the 1960's when they played a vital part in the American War, allowing the Viet Cong to control a large rural area close to Ho Chi Minh City.

The tunnels are extensive and in their heyday included, hospitals, schools, meeting rooms, kitchens, and sleeping quarters. Today the Vietnamese government has preserved approximately 75 kilometers of the tunnels as a memorial park.
