Enter the bowels of a global empire at Bagram Airfield, the largest US military base in Afghanistan. Enjoy a spectacular view of the surrounding mountains amid heavy security. You can stay in classic military-style lodging, or have a true British Armed Forces’ B-hut or a US Army tent experience. Explore the corridors of power and get an understanding for the politics of modern warfare, with government contractors, NATO-led international troops, and a combination of US forces. Visited by a US president and once attacked by a suicide bomber, the site features a US-run pre-trial detention facility and an independent detention facility. Put Bagram Airfield into our Bagram family vacation planner and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

  • They have two Green Beans Coffee, that I know... I saw clean women for the first time in months! (They could have been ugly but I couldn't tell). I heard some POGs complaining about the lack of eating...  more »

  • BAF was the Walmart of Afghanistan. I lived in a tent in the middle of no where and enjoyed having a defac and Internet every second I could here. Great vacation spot.

  • Chow halls were great, the bathroom poetry on the walls of Grunts picking on POGs is 2nd to none! I would have given BAF a 5/5 but it instead gets a 4/5 as the cost of bootleg DVDs is way more expensive than other great airfields around the country and i felt exploited at these costs. Whatever it was i was breathing there was really cool as i would go outside at night to stare at the Hindenburg hot air balloon contraption that floated in the air. i would recommend anyone checking out BAF, fun times....
  • BAF is the most fun you probably never want to have again. Good people (mostly), good food (surf and turf fridays!) and recreational areas. Except no pools, which would be fun if it wasn't for the regular shelling that occurs. Check out the sights! There's tall concrete walls, tall chain fences, and if your lucky you can see little barbed wire fences! If you like dust and smoke in your lungs while you work out this is the best place for you! Come enjoy movie night with your desert queen or king, or video games with your buds on the 3 hrs of free time. Bedroom accommodations are impeccable. Not only do you get a bunk bed, you get TWO bunk beds! If your lucky you might get the top bunk. Its so close to the ceiling you can touch it! Rooms come with 3 other roommates to socialize with! If you get a chance visit this place one day! I cried the day I left... yes it was that good.
  • Spent three years and 3 months on BAF. Made some lifelong friends and lots of memories. Played music in the Sunday morning service at Enduring Faith Chapel for most of that time. Also lost some friends to IDF's. Wouldn't trade the experience for anything but glad to be back in the States for good. Gave me a great appreciation for the comforts of home. If you are going to be stationed in Afghanistan, BAF is the place to be. Very Hot in the summer but very cold in the winter. Had a lot of snow during the winter months. Man! Also some of the most beautiful mountain scenery and sunrises I have ever seen. Lived in a "B" Hut for most of the time but most of those have been torn down and replaced with perm birthing.
  • If you're gonna get deployed, get deployed here. Sure there's nightly rocket and or mortar attacks, but the base is so big and has so many hardened structures that there's a small chance that you will be in the line of fire, unless you go outside the wire. Good food, meet people from every country!!!
  • If you want to be somewhere in Afghanistan, here is the place to be. Living conditions and food aren't that bad, all things considered. Lots of places to go and hang out for some down time, good for stress relief.
