What to Expect
Vietnam’s demilitarized zone (DMZ) was established as a dividing line between North and South Vietnam as a result of the First Indochina War. It involved a strip of land on both sides of the Ben Hai River.

During the Second Indochina War, more popularly known as the Vietnam War, the DMZ became important as the battleground demarcation separating the territories of the North Vietnamese and the South Vietnamese.

The tour guide will pick you up at your hotel in Hue in the early morning and take you on a short drive to Dong Ha town, before continuing on National Route 9 to sites that include the Dakrong Bridge, the Rock Pile, the Khe Sanh combat base, ethnic minority villages, and the Ho Chi Minh Trail.

You’ll head back to Dong Ha for lunch. In the early afternoon, you’ll drive along Highway 1 to visit the Hien Luong Bridge, the Ben Hai River, and the 17th parallel. There will be stops at the Doc Mieu firebase and Vinh Moc tunnels as well.
