Khe Sanh Combat Base, Khe Sanh

(70+ reviews on the web)
Landmark
Former US outpost Khe Sanh Combat Base today tells the story of war in Vietnam. Nature took over this base, so some parts hide in banana, and coffee plants. Outside, see a restored bunker, and two helicopters in excellent condition. The site truly takes you years back, especially the little museum displaying pictures, and old weapons. On site, go to a small gift shop in order to buy souvenirs characteristic for this historical area. In addition, you might see locals with metal detectors in search for some other historical pieces, which they will also sell as souvenirs.

  • The base is a good physical account of conditions for troops in the war period, some famous films and known war stories mention the base, almost on the border with Laos. Our ride was tiring, since Hue in bus and stop for lunch at local restaurant. You can explore the abandoned war materials, such as tanks, cannons and planes that are still at the base.
