The Cu Chi Tunnels are 75km from the northwest of Saigon and are made up of an  elaborate subterranean network spanning more than 200km. The tunnels width is at most 1- meter  wide, so this will give you the unique experience of moving through the maze as if you were one of the  Vietcong. But don’t worry, the tunnels have been altered where needed to accommodate visitors, and  you will have no trouble navigating its passageways.

How did they build Cu Chi tunnels

When the tunnels were first being constructed  during the 1940s, they served as a base of attack against the colonial French. They were later redesigned  during the Vietnam War in the late 1960s. The tunnels’ reconstruction served primarily to house North  Vietnamese military units and provide a central command center. It only happened that nonmilitant  groups including women and children would use the tunnels as well in times of attack from the enemy.
