Generally, Quang Tri, the area’s provincial capital, is located in Vietnam’s Central Region, near the crossroads of North and South Vietnam, Laos, and Thailand. The old fortress of Quang Tri, Khe Sanh Combat Base, Truong Son National Cemetery, Truong Son trail, Vinh Moc Tunnels, Hien Luong Bridge, and Ben Hai River are among the anti-American resistance battle relics preserved in the province.
When you arrive in Quang Tri, drive south for about an hour to the Ben Hai River, which served as the DMZ during the Vietnam War. In military terms, a demilitarized zone (DMZ) is a region where military activity is prohibited by a peace treaty, armistice, or other bilateral or multilateral agreement, usually along the frontier or boundary of two or more military powers (or alliances).

WHERE IS DMZ VIETNAM?
HISTORICAL BACKGROUND OF DMZ VIETNAM
The Geneva Accords had just been signed, ushering in an era of peace in Indochina, and this was the context for the creation of the 17th parallel.
International experts will keep an eye on a Hien Luong bridgehead on each side of the North and the South. The UN-created DMZ demilitarized zone is located next to Hien Luong Bridge. This region, which stretches from the Vietnam–Laos border to the coast, has an area of 1.6 km on either side from where the Hien Luong bridge is located.
The fight at the 17th parallel was started when President Ngo Dinh Diem created a government in the South with the assistance of the United States in terms of military, economic, and food supplies. Yet, because violence is forbidden. Thus, the conflict can only be waged through the use of powerful propagandist speakers.
DMZ Tour Hue Program:
The 17th parallel
To start our Hue DMZ Private 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 5 km to either side of the temporary demarcation. But during the war, the southern area of DMZ was severely damaged by heavy bombings.
At arriving 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 parallel and desire for the country’s unification. At this display house, we understand about hardship, 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 Hue DMZ Private 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.
Vinh Moc Tunnels
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 (7-10 m deep), level 2 (12-15 m deep), level 3 (15-23 m 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. Thus, 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.
Khe Sanh Combat Base
Later on, we enjoy lunch in a local restaurant. In the afternoon, we will continue Hue DMZ Private Tour 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.
