ON THE ROAD BETWEEN CU CHI & SAIGON I
North to the Cu Chi Tunnels

We enjoyed the 150 km round-trip between Saigon and the Cu Chi Tunnels. It provided an excellent opportunity to observe and take photos of the buildings and activities along the roadway and in the adjacent fields and forests. It also gave us a chance to view more of Saigon.

Agriculture makes up about 30% of the economic output of South Vietnam and the rural fields show a great variety of crops grown: rice, rubber, coffee, tea, nuts, fruits and vegetables. 

Many of the industries we saw along the roadways are related to agriculture: food and wood processing as well as textile and construction industries. The numerous tourist draws in the area result in many services catering to tourism.
