Full description
Discover the historic Demilitarized Zone of Vietnam, recognized by the Geneva Conference on 21 July 1954 on the 17th parallel, temporarily dividing the country into 2 states.

Your guide will take you to Quang Tri province, where you will visit the Church of La Vang, and Dong Ha town, location of an important US Marine Combat Base, providing surveillance of the troops across the Demilitarized Zone (DMZ).

See Doc Mieu base, part of an elaborate electronic system intended to prevent infiltration across the DMZ. Explore Hien Luong Bridge (Peace Bridge), built from steel by the French in 1950.

At Cua Tung Beach, see where the Ben Hai River flows from west to east just south of the 17th parallel. Explore the Vinh Moc tunnels complex deep in the Vietnamese Demilitarized Zone.

After lunch at a local restaurant, learn about the ethnic minority people and see the Dakrong Bridge across the Dakrong River. Explore the Ho Chi Minh Trail, which ran from North Vietnam to South Vietnam through neighboring Laos and Cambodia.

Continue to Rock Pile base for American long range artillery, and Khe Sanh combat base in the rolling mountains and forests of the valley.
