Cu Chi. is located at the threshold of Sai Gon and adjacent to the revolutionary base. Cu Chi played an important role in the two wars of resistance against the old and new colonial powers. Cu Chi was an ‘underground village’ with its labyrinth of interlaced tunnels having a combined length of more than 200km. The main tunnel is 60 – 70 cm wide and 80 – 90 cm high. Above the tunnel is a layer of earth about 3m – 4m thick, enough to sustain the weight of 50-ton tanks or heavy artillery as well as the destruction of bomb up to 100kg. Although it is ?an underground communication network, the tunnel is enlarged here and there into rooms large enough to hold large meetings, a medical station or art performances.
