most of the exhibits or some shops are inside this hut... its underground and makes u feel as if you're in the tunnel or a trench
I've always enjoyed war movies dating from the World War I and World War II... it's a shame how I've 'only' heard of the war in Vietnam but have no clue what it's all about.... how it started.... and how it ended... I must admit that it was more of a disturbing shock for me when I saw the other side (the vietnam side, since being in Canada all I see is the hollywood american war heroes) of the war during my visit at the Cu Chi Tunnel... and after I visited the War Remnants Museum at Ho Chi Minh it opened my eyes to the reality of war and what exactly happened during the Vietnam War... something more than the eye can explain... reading the description of the war remnants and seeing the pictures of the innocent children and people who got involved back in the time truly will give anyone the eerieness and feeling of sadness... this time... i didn't only travelled to Vietnam but being in Cu Chi Tunnel and inside the War Remnants... i also travelled back in time.... the Vietnam War...
