Cu Chi War Tunnels, Vietnam

When visiting Ho Chi Minh City, be sure to consider taking a tour of the Cu Chi War Tunnels. It’s an easy day trip (not even a full day) from the city, and an interesting way to learn about the Vietnam War. You’ll be able to walk (or crawl) through a pitch black tunnel dug for the war. If you’re claustrophobic be careful as the tunnel is pitch black and leaves barely enough room to move through on your feet. Your calves will ache when you make it to the end. You’ll see remnants of bomb craters, weapons, vehicles, and ammunition used during the war. For a fee you can shoot some of the guns actually used during the war, although its quite expensive. You can also see examples of some of the types of brutal traps placed throughout the jungle during the war.
