The Spring Hotel

Cu Chi Tunnels – (A)

Cu Chi used to be a bitter battleground for many years during the Vietnam War. Visitors to our country can not miss a visit to this “underground village” with the intricate network of over 200 km tunnels.

Just 70km northwest of Saigon, the Cu Chi area lies at the end of the Ho Chi Minh Trail and was the base from which Vietnamese guerillas used to attack Saigon. The residents of Cu Chi took their war underground, literally, developing a network of tunnels that, at its height, stretched as far as Cambodia and included meeting rooms, kitchens, and triage areas -  an effective network for waging guerella warfare on nearby U.S. troops.

It may be incredible if you don’t experience a short, exciting trip trough this labyrinth of interfaced tunnels. Then challenge yourselves with the rifle shooting range (optional with surcharge).

A great place to stay
This is not a large hotel, but it is a very nice place. Staff is helpful and friendly. Most have some English. Rooms are a good size and the cleaning staff does a good job. A nice breakfast comes with the meal and I really appreciate the fresh fruit which they serve with the breakfast. Hotel is in a good location for exploring the city. Taxis are readily available and many types of restaurants are within an easy walking distance. A good strong WiFi in the rooms and common areas. They also provide a couple of computers for the use of the guest. Will stay here next time I am here. Web site www.springhotelvietnam.com email springhotel@hcm.fpt.vn
