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.
