Hue DMZ Private Tour Program
To start our tour, in the morning our guide and drive will come to pick you up at hotel in Hue and we will be heading to Demilitarized Zone (DMZ). Thus, The Ben Hai River (17th parrallel) served as temporary demarcation between the North and the South of Vietnam according to Treaty which was signed between North and South Vietnam. Accordingly, DMZ consisted of a 5km to either side of the temporary demarcation. But during the war, the southern area of DMZ was severely damaged by heavy bombings.
At arrving at DMZ, the guide will tell you history and general information about this place then we start walking around and visit Flag tower that was terribly torn down by bombings in 1950′ and 1960′. Next, we will come and look around Display Museum: 17th parrallel and desire for the country’s unification. At this display house, we understand about harship, bravery, sacrifice of local people in the war. From this room, we also think about a painful loss from many Vietnamese families who sent their sons to battlefield.
To continue the tour, we then cross the old Hien Luong bridge that divided the country into 2 parts. From now, you can feel the pain of the country when it is divided and the desire of people towards the peace and the freedom. After that, when we finish the car will then take us to Vinh Moc tunnel.
So, Vinh Moc tunnel was built by Vinh Thach people in Vinh Linh district during the war. The tunnel was well designed and it had 3 levels: level 1 (7-10m deep), level 2 (12-15m deep), level 3 (15-23m deep). It was such an amazing complex for the local people to hide in the war time. Also, there were 17 children born inside this tunnel. This is a result of smart people of Vinh Thach commune in Vinh Linh district. We show our deep respect to what they had done for the country. Nothing can stop the people from doing great things and nothing is more precious than independence and freedom.
Later on, we enjoy lunch in a local restaurant. In the afternoon, we will continue the trip to visit the Rock Pile and the Dakrong Bridge, Ho Chi Minh Trail, Khe Sanh combat air base and the ethnic minorities along High way No.9. Then we will come back to Hue in late afternoon and the tour will end here.
