Cu Chi used to be a fertile land with an abundance of forest and tropical fruits. After suffering from chemical poisons, napalms, and B-52 bombs, the region turned into a vast, empty field that was full of ashes, but the brave and local people stayed to fight for their freedom. They built a fish bone underground system to hide and connect houses and villages together. On the surface, countless traps and mines were placed and therefore made it hazardous for the Americans to come near. Are you curious about how the Viet Cong soldiers lived around there? Let take time to join with your local guide in this tour !
