Khe Sanh Combat Base, Khe Sanh

(3.9/5 based on 65+ reviews on the web)
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.
