The site of a famed 1968 siege, Khe Sanh Combat Base was an American base that saw one of the bloodiest battles of the war, though it was never overrun. Nearly 10,000 Vietnamese and 500 Americans died here from napalm, artillery rounds, mortars, and phosphorus shells. Today, the site is peaceful and home to a small museum, displaying some photos, reconstructed bunkers, and aircraft.

  • Disappointed with the visit. .we took a tour starting from Hué with sing tourist for 20 dollars per person. The trip is very long about 4 hours bus for barely an hour out. The basis is not abandoned d explanation and the base is in a very bad state it's hard to imagine something... Too bad because it was an important place. The tunnels of wine its a muc do also. Very impressive is the Best of the visit but very very quick 15 min only... We visited a war cemetery also 10 minutes and saw the rockpille and the famous bridges of two colors.

  • Here the hue from DMZ tour Maine visit. Reminiscent of battle-this is where I think and is almost no trace. Platoon to go just wide-meadows attack helicopter aircraft, large transport helicopter aircraft, four transport aircraft, tanks, armored vehicles and each one is Santarem is located. Remains quite Tatty trench one slightly reminiscent at that time. Also has a small museum. Surrounded by mountains, Laos border region will be anticlimactic as a place dotted with coffee plantation. Tours start at 7 o'clock hue and five came back ago the hue.
