Vinh Moc Tunnels
This labyrinth of tunnels between what were North and South Vietnam during the war is a testimony to the defiance and ingenuity of the Vietnamese resistance. Vinh Moc was a village that the US troops believed was sympathetic to the Communist North, so when the Americans planned to remove the villagers, they dug tunnels to relocate their homes underground. What resulted is a tight warren of tunnels stretching more than a mile in total, some as deep as 100 meters underground. The subterranean village included kitchens, rooms, and wells, and was home to more than 50 families; a number of children were even born in this subterranean village.
