Places to visit in Vietnam

Places to visit in Vietnam

The Cu Chi Tunnels were built in order to combat better-supplied American and South Vietnamese forces during the Vietnam War, Communist guerrilla troops dug tens thousands of miles of tunnels, including an elaborate network running underneath the Cu Chi district northwest of Saigon. Soldiers used these underground routes to house troops and supplies, lay booby traps and mount surprise attacks, after which they could disappear underground to safety. To combat these guerrilla tactics, U.S. and South Vietnamese forces trained soldiers as “tunnel rats” to navigate the tunnels while detecting booby traps and enemy troop presence. Now part of a Vietnam War memorial park in Ho Chi Minh City (formerly Saigon), the Cu Chi tunnels are a very popular tourist attraction.

In all, at least 45,000 Vietnamese men and women are said to have died defending the Cu Chi tunnels over the course of the Vietnam War. The Vietnamese government preserved the Cu Chi tunnels and included them in a network of war memorial parks around the country.

Wax Print

Wax Print

Wax print or Batik originated in India. The word batik actually means ‘wax writing’.

To decorate cloth by wax print you have to cover a part of the cloth with a coat of wax and then dye the cloth. When the wax is removed the contrast between the dyed and undyed areas makes the pattern, as the waxed areas keep their original colour.
The beauty of wax print is its simplicity. Some of the best effects in batik are often achieved by chance. Batik is very popular in southern India and is an amazing way of printing fabric.

Wax print is an amazing way of textile design and you will be able to experience it up close on our Colouricious textile tour to Southern India. You will be able to try it out for yourself when you get home, and achieve some amazing results. Wax print designs come in a large range of colours and patterns and you will be amazed when you see the whole textile printing process.
