The Cu Chi Tunnels are an immense network of underground tunnels located in Ho Chi Minh, Saigon. Today the tunnels are preserved and converted into a memorial complex. Here you can learn first hand what it was like during wartime in Vietnam. See how soldiers lived and what tactics were implemented during the war. The tunnels were used by Viet Cong soldiers during combat as well as for housing, hospital, food, and more.
I’m a bit claustrophobic and wasn’t able to climb through too much of the tunnel. But that tunnel was expanded for tourists, back then the soldiers were climbing on their bellies. The conditions of war is rough and it is very difficult for us to grasp what it was like with the present day historical site. But I hope the video provides you with some educational context and encourages you to come here to experience & learn for yourself. Respects to all the soldiers, both Vietnamese and American, that fought in this conflict.
If you’re coming to Ho Chi Minh, I absolutely recommend coming here. This is an important historic site to visit!
If you’ve made it this far, please help give the videos a thumbs up, thank you!
