HUE TO VINH MOC TUNNELS PRIVATE CAR
We highly recommend you depart early in the morning and based on your requested time, our driver and Hue private car will pick you up at your hotel/ homestay in Hue.
The first attraction in our Hue to Vinh Moc Tunnels is the La Vang Church (La Vang Holyland). It is associated with a legend of an apparition of the Virgin Mary in the 18th century. According to the legend, during a time of religious persecution in Vietnam, a group of Catholics took refuge in the forest near the site where La Vang Holy Land now stands.
While hiding in the forest, they witnessed an apparition of the Virgin Mary, who comforted and protected them. This event is considered a significant moment in the history of Catholicism in Vietnam.
La Vang Holy Land is a popular destination for pilgrims, especially during religious festivals and important dates in the Catholic calendar. Many Catholics come to pray, seek blessings, and pay their respects at the basilica and the shrine dedicated to Our Lady of La Vang.
Next, our driver will stop at The Long Hung Church, also known as Long Hung Parish Church, a historical and cultural landmark located in the Quang Tri Province of Vietnam. It holds significance as a symbol of both the Catholic faith and the Vietnam War.
During the Vietnam War (1955-1975), the Long Hung Church gained notoriety for its strategic location near the Demilitarized Zone (DMZ), which separated North and South Vietnam.
These days, the Long Hung Church is a historical site that attracts tourists interested in both its architectural beauty and its historical significance. It has been partially restored and preserved, allowing visitors to explore the church grounds and learn about its role in the Vietnam War.
After that, our English-speaking driver will stop for you to visit the complex of Hien Luong Bridge & Ben Hai River. These sites are located in the Quang Tri Province, near the 17th parallel, which served as the demarcation line between North Vietnam and South Vietnam during the conflict.
Hien Luong was a symbolic structure during the Vietnam War. It was a bridge that spanned the Ben Hai River, connecting North and South Vietnam. The bridge itself was divided into two sections, with one part in North Vietnam and the other in South Vietnam. This division was a physical representation of the separation between the two regions caused by the war.
Nowadays, the Hien Luong Bridge and the surrounding area have become a popular tourist attraction and a historical relic. You can learn about the history of the Vietnam War, the division of the country, and the experiences of the Vietnamese people during that time. There is a museum nearby that exhibits photographs and artifacts from the war era.
Last but not least in the Hue to Vinh Moc tunnels by private car is the Vinh Moc Tunnels, a remarkable network of underground tunnels located in the Quang Tri Province of Vietnam. These tunnels have historical significance as they were used by the local population during the Vietnam War as a shelter from bombings and a place to live and carry on daily activities.
The tunnels were dug by hand and extended for several kilometers, reaching depths of up to 30 meters (about 98 feet) below the surface. They were organized into multiple levels and contained living quarters, storage areas, and facilities for daily life.
