If there is a place showing the undaunted spirit of Vietnamese, it could be Cu Chi Tunnels. About 70 km from Ho Chi Minh City to the northwest, Cu Chi Tunnel is famed for the revolutionary landmark. Located on the Northwest direction, about 70 km from Ho Chi Minh city, Cu Chi Tunnel is an amazing complex of 200-km underground tunnels comprising many constructed living areas, sleeping quarters, weapon factories, hospitals, and kitchens.
During the wartime, the Cu Chi Tunnel played a vital role as a communication and coordination hub for the Viet Cong in their resistance to American forces. Today, Cu Chi Tunnel is an attractive tourist destination for both Vietnamese and foreigners to recall the hardships of the war in the last century. The tunnel will give tourists a real hands-on experience of what it took to live in the past, and an opportunity to fire off some shooting range with some models of machine guns for rent, like the AK47 or M16. Plan a Ho Chi Minh City shore excursions from Phu My port to this place to see what has been well preserved since the war.
