These days of July, lots of people from inside and outside the province come to the National historical Relics of Thi Thung Tunnel (An Xuan commune, Tuy An district).

During the anti-American battle, Military Zone 5 command post and Phu Yen provincial Party Committee decided to dig the tunnel at Thi Thung mound. Commenced on May 10th, 1965 and up to August 1965, the work was completed with the total length of 1,948m, 4.5 m deep and 0.8m wide. The entire tunnel has 486 wells with the cover having wood installed, 20m separate from the disguised side door. The upper part of the tunnel has the observatory guarding station. The surrounding part is one vertical and horizontal traffic system. Once the enemies, we appeared to fight against, once completing fighting, we withdrew to the tunnel, and this caused the enemies puzzled. The tunnel system has contributed to making glorious historical feats.

In 2009, Thi Thung mound tunnel was acknowledged the national level historical relics. Together with Cu Chi tunnel (HCMC), Vinh Moc tunnel (Quang Tri commune), Thi Thung tunnel is one of our nation’s large tunnels, becoming the popular sightseeing destination for many people coming to Phu Yen land.
