Part of the Vietnam War history
During the wartime in Vietnam, Saigon was the capital of South Vietnam. Cu Chi district, which lies in the north west of Saigon, was the Vietcong guerrillas' stronghold . From here, the Vietcong launched many surprise attacks into Saigon. The South Vietnamese army and its allies swept through the Cu Chi area. To defend themselves, the Vietcong guerrillas dug tunnels and manufactured their own weapons. Visiting the tunnels and other places in Saigon, you will see a lot of evidence related to the Vietnam War.
