Keep doing the Danang to DMZ by private car, we will explore the DMZ Vietnam relics with some famous Vietnam war attractions such as
Hien Luong Bridge and the Ben Hai River hold historical significance in Vietnam. During the Vietnam War, the Ben Hai River served as the demilitarized zone (DMZ) that divided North Vietnam and South Vietnam. The Hien Luong Bridge was the bridge over the Ben Hai River that symbolized the physical separation between the two regions.
The Hien Luong Bridge and Ben Hai River have since become important symbols of the reunification of Vietnam following the war. Nowadays, they serve as a memorial site known as the Hien Luong-Ben Hai Historic Cluster, where you can learn about the country’s history and the resilience of its people.
The Doc Mieu Airbase, also known as the Dong Ha Airfield, was a military airfield located in Quang Tri Province in central Vietnam. The airbase was used by the U.S. Marines and other American forces during the Vietnam War. It served as a crucial location for air support, helicopter operations, and logistical support for military operations in the northern region of South Vietnam and near the DMZ.
These days, this airbase and the surrounding area are now part of a historical site and museum dedicated to the Vietnam War. You can explore the remnants of the airbase, view displays and artifacts related to the war, and learn about the history and significance of this location.
Long Hung Church, located in Quang Tri Province, Vietnam, is a historical and cultural landmark known for its significance during the Vietnam War. Built in the 19th century, it served as a place of worship and refuge for the local Catholic community.
The church is famous for being one of the few structures that survived the intense fighting and bombings during the war, making it a symbol of resilience and hope in the face of adversity. These days, Long Hung Church stands as a testament to the enduring spirit of the Vietnamese people and is a popular destination for visitors interested in the history and heritage of the region.
Then, the main attraction in our Da Nang to DMZ private car is the Vinh Moc Tunnels. The Vinh Moc Tunnels are a remarkable underground network located in Quang Tri Province, Vietnam. These tunnels were constructed during the Vietnam War as a shelter for the local population, particularly the villagers of Vinh Moc, who sought refuge from the intense bombing campaigns in the area.
The tunnels span several kilometers and include living quarters, meeting rooms, healthcare facilities, and storage areas. Today, the Vinh Moc Tunnels serve as a historical site and museum, offering visitors a glimpse into the resilience and ingenuity of the Vietnamese people during the war, as well as the challenging conditions they endured while living underground.
