“…enjoyed this place a lot. Starts with a video which feels slightly biased, focusing on the bravery and heroism of the Vietnamese in the war. Then around the site, which is quite a polished tourist attraction, but interesting nonetheless. This is a truly fascinating tour and to get a real feel for it i would recommend going on a guided tour that way everything is explained to you. It really shows the resilience and resources of the Vietnamese and how the Americans were so frustrated, some of these people lived in these tunnels for 10 years, only coming out at night. Well worth the trip…”
