Good Morning. This is how Bich Duyen’s dining area look like.

Im hungryyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy

A cup of juice to boosted us up.

Vietnamese Chili


Tea with milk

Our baguette and sunnies side up.

Morning view outside our hotel. I love it here because the hotel located inside the valley without facing the main road so it won’t be filled with all those busy noisy traffic out there.

The street outside our hotel.

The rubbish cart and the rubbish collector.

This is how it work.

Looked out the board above the entrance that’s how u can find Bich Duyen.

Met up with Quang, our tour guide from Saigon Hotpot (Saigon Hotpot is a group of university students who offer free tours of their native city.  All that needs to be paid is their transport costs to and from your meeting place and entrance fees where necessary.)

Here we are.

Buy ourself a ticket.

Loi Vao.

My pass.

Entered into a briefing room to listen to the history and structure of the Cu Chi tunnels before we start.

We were caught by our curiosities of why there are so crowded at that one spot.

Demonstration by the tourist guide.

He taught us how to hide ourself.

He’s gone.

He tried out himself.

Now u see me.

Now u don’t.

My turn.

I was so afraid that my flip-flop might fall into the hole.

Ok this is a false demonstration.


Because I might cause enemies spotted our hiding entrance spot by not covered with leaves and IT’S NOT TIGHT!!!

One of the many entrances to the underground tunnels.

Watch out!

It’s a trap.

A very small and narrow entrance.

fake entrance for confusing purpose

Women soldiers were usually tasked to guide the soldiers into the tunnels. So they played very important role when war.

Termite hole for ventilation of the smoke from kitchen

Saw a big tank.

Very big and scary when I was up there.

Gory places.

All the scary traps.

The military workshop.

This is how the process of rice paper are done.
