Where is Cu Chi tunnels?
Cu Chi tunnels in suburbs of Ho Chi Minh city is an underground village Phu My hung. It belongs Cu Chi town, far from Ho Chi Minh city to the north west about 70 kilo-metres. The Vietnamese soldiers built the tunnels from 1946 to 1948 in the anti-French colonialist war of resistance.
How is Cu Chi tunnels amazing and attractive?
Firstly, a tour guide introduce a documentary film about the war. And how to make weapons of defence from the smallest items. Incidentally, the story guide us to the time which Vietnam country was divided into 2 areas. They are South area and North area with 2 political systems.
Next, the heros in the story are soldiers “Viet Cong”. They built an immense network to avoid pursuing of American and Nguy empire. Of course, the Vietnamese soliders fought in defence of one’s fatherland to unify the country and merged two areas the South and the North of Vietnam. In my opinion, the immense network plays an important role in making the victory.
Nevertheless, underground tunnels are the most memorable thing. Certainly, we can discover all tunnels and each “room”. The “rooms” have enough places as hospital room, meeting-place, kitchen, weapon-warehouse, and other private rooms.
Luckily, because of a small Asian body, I can worn into every narrow and out-of-the-ways, experience “smell” of the dark and the hot temperature which makes you break out in a sweat.
