The Cu Chi tunnels are among the most well-known tourist destinations in Ho Chi Minh City. The Vietnamese guerrilla army selected this location for a base here, around 60 kilometers (40 miles) from the heart of Ho Chi Minh City, where they would fight against the American troops during the Vietnam War. You’ll be amazed to figure out how people used to live and work comfortably beneath the complex and dense system of tunnels.
