Củ Chi tunnels, Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam- used by Viet Cong soldiers as hiding spots during combat, as well as serving as communication and supply routes, hospitals, food and weapon caches. Life in the tunnels was difficult. Air, food and water were scarce and the tunnels were infested with ants, poisonous centipedes, scorpions, spiders and vermin. Soldiers spent the day in the tunnels and came out only at night to scavenge for supplies, tend crops, or engage in battle.

During the war in Vietnam, thousands of people in the Vietnamese province of Cu Chi lived in an elaborate network of underground tunnels.
