Cu Chi travel
Let’s talk about Cu Chi tunnels history. Built during the Vietnam war against French colonialists (1945-1954),those tunnels were designed in many ways, each of which had only one small lid for one person move. Therefore, Vietnamese soldiers were easily captured by the enemy when detected.
In the secret system, each of the different locations has specially closed gates used to stop the enemy or toxic gas. All tunnels have secret vents to the ground and are very discreetly camouflaged. The anti-infantry system was densely interwoven at the entrances to ensure safety. During the war, it could contain an army or be full of the village’s residents, which helped the Vietnamese protect many lives.
Cu Chi Tunnels were also housed the factory workers who provided weapons and war equipment, not just a village but an entire city under the ground. It had stockpiles of firearms, ammunition and explosives of all kinds, food and materials, battlefield facilities, smoke free kitchens (Hoang Cam kitchen), hospitals for the wounded, and bedrooms and shelters for women, children and the elderly.
