Get on a speedboat and go all the way along the Saigon River. You can get to the wharf that visits Guzhi Tunnel. You can also get there by car. When Vietnam resisted French rule, soldiers dug underground battleways for more than 20 years with their bare hands. In the lush green jungle, it was not easy for Vietnam to quickly retreat into the narrow tunnel entrance, which was concealed perfectly. Not to mention those well-designed traps, in order to avoid the enemy's more than 200 kilometers of underground anti-Japanese war and life system, kitchens, hospitals, combat rooms, grain depots and so on. The explanation was fascinated by the perseverance and wisdom of the Vietnamese people. I remember the cat's waist went into the tunnel once, which was not in vain.
Guzhi Tunnel, like an underground village, is one of the three major relics of Ho Chi Minh City. It's about sixty-five kilometers from Ho Chi Minh City. During the Vietnam War, it was the underground headquarters of the 25th Division of the Vietnamese Army, like an underground village. The ruins of Guzhi Tunnel are now preserved in two areas: Binhai Tunnel in Fumeixing Township, Guzhi County, 70 kilometers northwest of Ho Chi Minh City, and Binhting Tunnel in Runli Township, Guzhi County. Because the soil in Guzhi is very hard, the local people have come up with a way to dig tunnels as a way of concealment. Guzhi Tunnel began to be excavated in the 1940s during the Anti-French War. It expanded dramatically in the Vietnam War, totaling 250 kilometers, and became a fully functional underground city. The tunnel is divided into three layers, with the lowest depth up to 8 meters. There are wells, granaries, conference rooms and dormitories in the tunnel, just like a big barracks. But when you crawl down narrow passages, you will understand that underground life is not as comfortable as you imagined. Only under the pressure of cruel war can people choose this way of life.
The Vietnamese people are living and using the model of Chinese guerrilla tactics. In a village 40 kilometers northwest of Ho Chi Minh, where the key point is to resist the law in the United States first, it is used as the advanced base and military station of the Vietnamese Communist Party.
Guzhi Tunnel is 40 kilometers north of Saigon. Construction began in 1948, initially to resist French aggression, and later played a major role in the Vietnam War. The tunnel is very narrow, less than one meter in height and 60 centimeters in width. It can only go forward half-squatting. Two fat German girls in front of me came out at a glance and dared not enter. It's hard to imagine all the tunnels in Vietnam add up to 200 kilometers and fight through the tunnels. There were many traps in the tunnel, and many American troops were trapped inside. During the Vietnam War, the Vietnamese Communist Party successfully attacked US military bases and the presidential palace of South Vietnam many times through tunnels.
First, the leader led us into a small space to watch TV and listen to the commentary. Then he showed us the traps of the US-Vietnam War, arms and other weapons. There are all kinds of traps. The tunnel entrance is very small. Vietnamese Communists are small, tunnels and entrances are small, even if the U.S. military found it can not enter.
Friends who like historical stories must not miss this scenic spot. The antiquities here are well preserved. The commentator carefully explains it. It is also a must-visit scenic spot in Vietnam. It is very characteristic and can feel the life of Vietnamese soldiers in tunnels during the Vietnam War.
When you get to Guzhi, you will see the tunnels and various organ traps that South Vietnam built during its resistance to French colonial rule, many of which were still used during the Vietnam War. In the tunnel, there are hospitals, conference halls, sleeping rooms and so on.
