Arrived at Cu Chi Tunnels and started to explore how magnificent it was.
The system was enlarged during the Vietnam War into an assembly complex enabling Communist guerrilla warriors to shelter troops, transfer communications and supplies, get medical care, seek cover from aircraft bombardment, and launch surprise attacks before dissolving into the earth. As a military headquarters, the Cu Chi Tunnels were vital in the Vietnamese forces' struggle against the American army in South Vietnam. It served as an isolated stronghold from which to plan and conduct successful military operations, most notably the victorious Tet Offensive in 1968.
These famed Saigon tunnels witnessed the horrors of horrible conflicts and symbolized the Vietnamese people's perseverance and resourcefulness throughout the country's stormy history. The Cu Chi Tunnels were designated one of the top seven must-see epic and daring sites in Southeast Asia by Travel magazine and one of the world's coolest places by The New York Times.
The Cu Chi tunnel system used to extend all the way to the Cambodian border, covering around 250 kilometers in all, 120 kilometers of which have been adequately preserved and are now available to the public. The Cu Chi Tunnels Saigon complex, built on clay soil combined with laterite, astounds visitors with its remarkable structure and durability. Hundreds of sophisticated booby traps and phony bunkers have been erected on the bottom floor to impale and confound opponents. Only Vietnamese can fit through the tunnel entrances, which have wooden manhole covers disguised by greenery.
The underground component of the secret system is made up of three deep levels linked by a central axis and reaching all the way to the Saigon River. The first level (3 meters below ground) could survive chemical warfare, gunfire, tanks, and armored vehicles, while the second (6 meters above ground) could withstand bombs. The third level is the deepest (it rises more than 12 meters above the surface of the Earth). To fight dangerous gas, escape hatches were installed between floors, as well as unrevealed vents leading to the bottom. The communication passages are 0.81.2 meters wide and 1.5 meters thick.
Ben Dinh Tunnels are advantageously positioned near the Saigon River, where Cu Chi Commissioners would lead troops and flee there in an emergency. Between 1968 and 1975, it was frequently used. When you first reach the site, you will see a thatched hut with a map of the region, tunnel drawings, and black-and-white documentaries to educate you on the history. Local guides will show you the terrifying booby traps and secret holes as you penetrate the jungle. After 45 minutes to an hour in the tunnels, you'll find ancient facilities, gorgeous displays, and intriguing stories about individuals who formerly lived here.
Ben Duoc Tunnels is a famous place for brave travelers who want to learn about Saigon's underground metropolis firsthand. It lets visitors to put their skills to the test by crawling through restricted and challenging tunnels on a deeper level. The original tunnels have been extended and rebuilt with cementation and lights to make the journey safer and less scary. There are extra emergency exits every 10 meters. These hands-on activities will paint a realistic picture of the harsh living conditions suffered by Vietnamese soldiers during the fight. Ben Duoc is also home to historical attractions such as Hoang Cam Kitchen and the Ben Duoc Memorial Temple.
