Cu Chi Tunnel Escapade

"The tunnels were used by Viet Cong guerrillas as hiding spots during combat, as well as serving as communication and supply routes, hospitals, food and weapon caches and living quarters for numerous guerrilla fighters. The tunnel systems were of great importance to the Viet Cong in their resistance to American forces, and helped achieve ultimate military success."

 Don't you dare to step on this or else....
 spikes are waiting for you.
 This hole serves as their source of oxygen. There are many of this around the place. When the enemies are around, they cover those holes with grass to cover the holes.
 Look how small the soldiers that time.
 This is one of their entrance through their tunnel, and I got the chance to see what is inside.
 It was so hot down there and was a little bit of scary.HAHA. The photo above is an evidence, BLURRED because my hands were really shaking. Plus, seeing the bat inside...AAAH!

 The photos above were the traps that the Vietnamese soldiers made for their enemies.

We also had the chance to experience shooting using their guns and it was so heavy!

The entrance of the tunnel. This part of the tunnel was 'edited' (a big LOL with that 'edited' word) already for the sake of the other tourists who are big, yes big.HAHA. 
I forgot to take pictures because my gawd! It was so hot inside and dark!
This is what it looks like after the tunnel experience. SPEECHLESS. lol

Good thing our tour guide has something for us! Yummy Cassava with sugar and some peanut-y something! HAHA!

Hope You Enjoyed!
