A Glance of Vietnam

The Park was built by Tran Thi Tuyet Nga who lived and fought against the enemy to protect military bases in the land during the years of fierce war. She said: “When returning to Cu Chi to build a small school to present to local children, I initiated the idea to do some useful things for the land” and after nearly 20 years, “A glimpse of Vietnam” was established as a destination for travelers who want to look into the history, culture, people and craft villages of Vietnam.
