Vinh Moc Tunnel, Dong Ha

(4.6/5 based on 200+ reviews on the web)
Walk along Vinh Moc Tunnel to explore former underground Vietnamese shelter. In order to save their lives, and avoid American bombers, people decided to dig, and move their village to 23m (75 feet) underground. Firstly, you walk through the first level, 12m (39 feet) deep, where you can see photographs of families who hid there. Then, continue to the second level, 15m (49 feet) deep, and see washing rooms, maternity rooms, health stations, operation room, meeting room, and the well. The deepest third level contains a well, and it served as a main shelter during bombing. On the walls read all the information about the villagers, and get out at the magnificent beach.

  • Visit the tunnels of Vinh Moch is necessary to get an idea of how cruel it was US aggression in Viet Nam. The closing of view Video clearly illustrates the terrible conditions in which civilians have been living to escape the granaiole of bombs. Excited is the outlet to the sea down the stairs onto the beach from which came the supplies. The war written by weakest serves to understand the absurdity.
