  • Getting there as pigename to see the monument where it is there to honor the French soldiers and we saw good but not special interest.

  • just something for the history of the place, and it seems that the French army didn't understand much of the Vietnamese culture and commitment to reach independence from colonial powers.  more »
  • Dien Phu, a place near the Laotian border, ca-70000 inhabitants, has attractions from the last battle of the French against the Vietnamese. 1954, a year of destiny! Here, the French lost their decisive battle. This bunker is very well preserved! As well, the trenches and the Interior. Here you can walk through! It was only a short visit! Unfortunately, there is up to now no explanations in English. A visit is worthwhile not just history buffs. The bridge, which leads into the village, dates from this time and is still accessible.
