Overview

DMZ Hue Half-day Tour helps you take a quick visit to some of the most important historical relics of leftovers from the Vietnam War. Demilitarized Zone (DMZ) Vietnam served as a war-free buffer between the communist North and free South Vietnam in the time between 1954 – 1975. Located in Central Vietnam, Quang Tri Province, at the 17th parallel, this place was one of the bloodiest battles during Vietnam War in the 60s, 70s despite its name.

This DMZ Half-day Tour highlight is to visit Vinh Moc Tunnels – the longest and largest complex tunnel system in Vietnam. Once here, you will have an opportunity to experience and imagine what happened in wartime.

ITINERARY

Day

DMZ Hue Half-day Tour

09.00 AM: Our guide and car will pick you up at your hotel in Hue City central, then transfer you to Vietnam Demilitarized Zone in Quang Tri province. Ready to start the DMZ Hue Half-day Tour.

Visiting places:

Horror Highway: May 1, 1972, will never be forgotten by people in Quang Tri and Thua Thien provinces not because it is International Labor Day, but because of the horrible carnage on Vietnam Highway 1, the Horror Highway. Thousands of civilians, mostly the elders, women, children, and scores of soldiers were killed by artillery and infantry weapons in hours of shooting.

Long Hung Church: one of the very few existing buildings remains in Quang Tri town during “Fire Summer” or Eastern Offensive in 1972. It is a National Relic in the town of Quang Tri Vietnam – BA5453.

Quang Tri Ancient Citadel: is seen as an eye-witness of fierce battles during the anti-American resistance war in 1972. During the 81-day fighting, the citadel was almost destroyed by thousands of tons of bombs released by the US army. Nowadays, the citadel becomes a place to mark immortal victories of the Vietnamese army and people and to educate youths about the nation’s revolutionary tradition and patriotism.

Hien Luong Bridge – Ben Hai River: The Geneva Agreements on Vietnam signed in 1954 divided Vietnam into North and South with the 17th Parallel where the Ben Hai River runs through the central province of Quang Tri as a borderline. Hien Luong Bridge, also known as the Peace Bridge, was built by the French in 1950, across the Ben Hai River. It is 178 m long but it took 21 years for Vietnamese people from the North and the South to be united.

Doc Mieu Base: One part of an elaborate electronic system (McNamara’s wall) intended to prevent infiltration across the DMZ. There’s basically nothing left of this old American base save a rusting tank and a sign. Apparently, this once formed the backbone of the “eagle eyes of America” electronic monitoring fence.

Vinh Moc Tunnels and Tunnels Museum: The most highlighted part of DMZ Tour during the Vietnam War. The complex of Vinh Moc tunnels was located deep in the Vietnamese Demilitarized Zone and sheltered Vinh Linh county people from the intense bombing. The tunnels were a success in saving the villagers’ lives and providing them with the necessary living conditions to fight back against the American enemy.

03:00 PM: Tour ends at your hotel in Hue.

ViTravel goodbye and see you again.
