A famous historical relic located in Cu Chi district, 70km from the center of Saigon, also the end of the Ho Chi Minh trail. In 1948, during the Vietnam War and the Indochina War, Cu Chi Island was constructed. The system, about 250km long, is full of necessary areas for the war for national independence, so it gives visitors a rare experience of the life of Vietnamese soldiers during the years of stiff resistance.

The history of the Cu Chi Tunnels is linked to the French Resistance War, which lasted from 1946 to 1948. To conceal and store men and weapons, the army worked with residents of Tan Phu Trung and Phuoc Vinh An communes. Each hamlet in this region used to have a base camp. However, they were connected to create a continuous system due to travel needs. Six northern communes of Cu Chi Tunnels are currently connected by the project. The military can quickly communicate, conceal forces, and hold meetings to discuss revolutionary plans thanks to this project.
