The Cu Chi Tunnels , a network of tunnels that stretching over 200 km, have proven to be one of the most famous and historical aspects of the Vietnam War. The tunnel system was created in 1948 to assist the Viet Minh as they fought the French for independence.  Digging and building of tunnels continued over the next 25 years until it was an underground city with living areas, kitchens, storage, weapons factories, field hospitals, and command centers.  The tunnels could house up to 10,000 people who lived almost entirely underground for years.  There, people led relatively normal lives, which included getting married and raising children.  During the American War, the entire area of Cu Chi was designated as a free fire zone; and was therefore, heavily attacked and bombed.  In 1988, two sections of tunnels were opened up for visitors.  Now you have the chance to enjoy this wonderful and informative experience. The tunnels here are several levels deep and consist of innumerable trap doors. Created with “moving parts” these structures were designed to liveable for long periods of time.
