Vinh Moc Tunnel, Dong Ha

(4.6/5 based on 190+ 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.

  • We visited these tunnels with our three kids when we were heading to Hué from Phong Nha. It's just in the middle of the trip and a nice break. When in Vietnam you have to visit something of the Vietna...  more »
  • A place worth coming for sightseeing in Quang Tri, Dong HA and 35 km way near CUA Tung. This tunnels is testament to the will and exposed the limits of human work. At the top is the wide green land, when you step slowly down to the tunnels, the truly unexpected. Humans can do miraculous things with rudimentary instruments., this used to be a haven for thousands of people. Many babies have been born under the tunnels, they live for many months without ground up. There are many sea pine doors so the location is very strategic in guerrilla warfare.

  • Preserved tunnels help give some insight into the tenacity and will of the local villagers who were intent on not evacuating this village despite heavy bombing.

  • Vinh moc tunnel was a mark of cruel of American. Not miss.U not believe human can do the thing like this.
  • Easy to get too and well maintained tunnel complex. A guide will take you around the museum and tunnels for 100000 dong, worth it for the history.
  • Great tour. Very impressive.
  • Impressive to visit the tunnels
  • Tunnels built during Vietnam war for underground living when the area was heavily bombed by the US.
