ShoreTrips says...

This location brings to light an interesting aspect of warfare that is often forgotten.

There isn't a better place to have an in-depth reflection on the Vietnam war than the Cu Chi Tunnels. Considered the most famous battlegrounds in the country, these tunnels represent the core of the guerrilla combat style used by the Viet Cong throughout the war. The initial purpose of the tunnels, beginning in 1948, was to protect their army from French air and ground sweeps but eventually turned into an intricate aspect of their war initiative. Serving as communication routes, food and weapon storage facilities, living quarters and hospitals, the Cu Chi Tunnels embody the lifeline of this region's Viet Cong.

Endless attempts were made by American troops to control the area surrounding the Cu Chi Tunnels but countless roadblocks popped up. From the use of napalm to the bulldozing of villages, every plan of attack to uncover the complex tunnel system just led to more confusion. After years of destruction, the resilient area has now doubled in population with the still intact tunnels serving as a reminder of its torrid past.

Photos of this area will never do it justice unless you experience it firsthand.
