What is Cu Chi Tunnels and Mekong Delta, Vietnam?
Cu Chi Tunnels is located about 70 kilometers from the center of Ho Chi Minh city. This is a smaller version of the military basement of Cu Chi army and people in the resistance against the 30 years of independence and freedom for the country. This tourist area consists of 2 parts which are 13 kilometers apart: Ben Duoc Tunnels is located in Phu Hiep Hamlet, Phu My Hung Commune and the main tunnel area.
Cu Chi tunnels are about 250 kilometers long, from the wide tunnel “backbone” like spider webs in the ground, including works such as tunnels, trenches, mounds, battlefields, food tunnels, sleeping, meeting, kitchen, water wells, stockpiles, etc. The structures are connected to each other or can independently terminate, depending on terrain. Some tunnels flow into the Saigon River in case of a critical situation, so people can cross the river through Ben Cat base (Binh Duong).
Inside Cu Chi tunnels are dark and lack of air, in many sections, visitors have to stoop to be able to walk. But that is what makes people enjoying visiting this unique tourism site in Vietnam.

The Mekong Delta is the southernmost region of Vietnam, also known as the Southern Delta or Southwestern region. The Mekong Delta may have been formed from a bit of wind, a bit of sunshine, a bit of silt a little bit of water and warm people. Referring to the Mekong Delta, we have to mention Can Tho, Dong Thap, Ben Tre, Hau Giang, Ca Mau, Kien Giang ...
