The Cu Chi area could be described as a giant killing field. Over 10,000 VC were killed and hundreds of American and Australian soldiers. Many marines who went down into the tunnels never came out being killed by the VC, snakes or booby traps. The VC used sandals made out of discarded tires. They would often walk in the sandals wearing them back to front giving the impression of travelling in a different direction. VC insurgents in Saigon were often identified by the white marks of these distinctive sandals against sun darkened feet. Visitors to Cu Chi have an opportunity to go down into a brief section of tunnel. You can also shoot an AK-47 at the Shooting Range.
