Hien Luong Bridge – Ben Hai river

Settled along the Ben Hai River, 100 kilometers north of Hue and encompassing a large area of Quang Tri and Hue, this little land appears to be so serene that no one would guess it was once the scene of one of the bloodiest conflicts in Central Vietnam during the Vietnam War in the 1960s and 1970s. Between 1954 and 1975, this territory in Vietnam, today known as the Demilitarized Zone (DMZ), acted as a war-free buffer between the North and the South, but it was nonetheless subjected to major bomb strikes and casualties on both sides. The DMZ in Vietnam has become an icon of a battle zone in Viet Nam, with former American military base buildings, memorials dedicated to local war heroes, a US combat base-turned-museum, and war remnants.

In order to help you have an intense understanding of DMZ Tour Vietnam, Premium Travel Vietnam organize DMZ Vietnam Private Tour.
