The company showcased its range of plywood and veneer products. All participants appreciated the company’s efforts in promoting its products in market.
After lunch, the participants were taken to Cu Chi, the famous tunnels which were once a major underground hideout and resistance base of Viet Cong forces during the two wars against the French and the Americans. The tunnels, entirely hand-dug, formed a highly intricate network of interlinked multilevel passageways at times stretched as far as the Cambodian border and totalling over 120 km in length. At the present, the section of the tunnel system open to visitors is a few hundred metres only. It is 50m length and about 1.2m high and 80cm across. Some travellers find them too claustrophobic for comfort but experience to know more about the war in Vietnam. They also visited Mekong Delta, the World’s largest delta and Vietnam’s largest rice bowl, VinhTrang Pagoda, a prominent local Buddhist structure built in 1850 with a unique architectural mixture of Vietnamese, Roman, Chinese and Cambodian styles characterized by a highly ornate façade.
