Under the ground is a complex system including hospitals, classrooms, meeting room, Hoang Cam kitchen, a tank in the headquarters,… and many worth things to take photos.

Note:

  • There are little water and no toilet under the basement, so you should bring water along.  Remember to have glasses and lights from the start because you cannot go back to take them right in the middle of the trip.
  • If you want to go down the tunnels, please note that there are some available for just one person and it is quite hot and suffocating here, so be careful! You also pay attention to avoid getting lost in the parts that the guide does not take over.

2. The playground
