It offered an isolated base of operations from which to plan and execute successful military operations, the most well-known of which was the 1968 Tet Offensive.

About 120 kilometers of the 250 kilometers that made up the Cu Chi tunnel system—which formerly extended to the Cambodian border—have been well preserved and are now accessible to the general public. The Cu Chi Tunnels Saigon complex, constructed on laterite and clay soil, astounds visitors with its remarkable durability and design.  To confound and impale enemies, several intricate booby traps and phony bunkers have been put up on the bottom floor. Vietnamese individuals can barely fit through the narrow tunnel apertures; vegetation has grown above the wooden manhole covers.

The third level is the lowest, rising more than twelve meters above the floor. To fight hazardous gas, escape hatches between levels were included in addition to concealed vents that led to the basement. The communication pipes are 1.5 meters thick and 0.81.2 meters wide.
