Spots: Cu Chi Tunnels

Man squeezing himself into one of the secret tunnel entrances, Cu Chi Tunnels, HCMC.
One thing about living in Ho Chi Minh City is that we are so close to the famous Cu Chi Tunnels.  If I remember correctly it was a short 40-60 minute bus ride from a tourist office near Benh Thanh Market this was including the time needed to get out of the big city.  As you may or may not know the tunnels were used during the Vietnam war to funnel food, supplies, soldiers, weapons and played a big role in the Tet Offensive of 1968 serving as the Viet Cong's base of operations.
