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.

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.
