|On the Saigon River|
|Arriving at the Cu Chi Tunnels|
|How the Viet Cong disguised their presence|
|Voila! Disguised completely|
|Trapdoors targeting US forces|
|Access to tunnels|
|An entry point to the tunnels|
A few weeks after returning home I woke one morning struggling with my breathing. I'd been dreaming of being in that tunnel and imagining what might have happened had I suffered a heart attack or something similar.
Anyway, continuing our tour.
There was firing range for keen shooters to try out their expertise I assume using equipment and hardware from the times. These bullets I guess were for sale. You can see some prices in the top right of the photograph. At the time of our visit 22,000 Vietnamese Dong was valued at $US1.

After the tunnels we returned via the Saigon River to a beautiful park and grounds with restaurant facilities for lunch.
|Our lunch setting|
|Surrounding park and waterways|
|More waterways and one of a number of bridal parties taking photos|
Then an hour at the War Remnants Museum.
To conclude the day, sunset drinks and evening snacks on the 52nd Floor of Ho Chi Minh City's tallest building (71 stories).
