Astonishing tunnel systems

Without a question, exploring the actual Cu Chi Tunnels was this tour's high point. The complex system of tunnels beneath the surface was both astonishing and a little bit scary, but our tour guide expertly navigated the little passageways, describing their design, and function.

Thank you VM Travel guide

I recognized that Vietcong were clever by using Hoang Cam smoke-less stove, secret hideouts, etc to not attract the enemies. Thank you so much to our tour guide for sharing this experience to us

trying Vietnam war weapons is the most fascinating thing

it's a privilege to try various Vietnam war weapons during our break time rather than to relax :)
