Vietnam tour is incomplete without visiting the Cu Chi Tunnel. As part of our vacation we decided that we had to check it out and we are all very glad that we did. The tunnels were implausible and hard to picture that people lived in there for so long.

They also played a hidden part in the war. They not only helped in the tunnel-building, caring the…

Mt. Pinatubo’s cataclysmic eruption was considered one of the world’s most explosive eruptions in the twentieth century, which sent huge amounts of ash high into the sky and to its neighboring countries.There were thousands of evacuated families and about hundreds were killed during the event. Even though the eruption happened 23 years ago, the memory is still vivid in everyone’s mind. My friends and I were supposed to climb Mt Pulag, but something came up and we decided to do a day Trek in Mt. Pinatubo instead. My friend who just came from Dubai had our package tour arranged to us. Though you can also DIY, but since…
