Vietnam was paradise before the invaders began dropping bombs, spraying defoliant chemicals like Agent Orange. Waterfalls at Bangioc Park (phombo.com/mandalapa.com).
(Nov. 2013) The Cu Chi Tunnel complex was hand dug by the Viet Minh and later the Viet Cong using crude tools. The incredible ingenuity and determination on their part fighting for freedom, independence, and unification against American invaders is amazing.

Crawling through the Cu Chi Tunnel into the past
There's so much to see in Vietnam today!
If we want to know what the imperial U.S. war on Buddhist Vietnam was like, this can be the starting point.

Located about 2 hours from Ho Chi Minh City, Cu Chi Tunnel is a complex of tunnels and a miniature underground city with many war relics.
With a total length of over 200 kms, it allowed space for living and meeting of many defensive Viet Cong soldiers during the invasion by the West, first France then the United States.

As one crawls through the tiny hallway and gets a taste of yucca with salted sesame seeds, one will figure out why Vietnam won battles against a much bigger force.

The tunnel system is touted as being "beyond human imagination," with brilliant architectural design that was suited for survival and defensive military activities. More
