  • Demilitarised Zone (DMZ) Vietnam

    Hue Attractions


    Demilitarised Zone (DMZ) Vietnam is popular for fans of military history as it is possible to see hundreds of weapons, artillery and military tanks left behind by foreign troops. Located 100km north of Hue, the iconic war zone is set along Ben Hai River, encompassing five kilometres of land on either side of the border.

    Between 1954 and 1975, Demilitarised Zone (DMZ) Vietnam served as a war-free buffer between the North and the South but it’s also the site of some of the worst battles in Vietnam’s history. Today, visitors can still visit the many destroyed foundations of former American military bases buildings, monuments dedicated to local war heroes, and hundreds of war relics displayed within a US combat base-turned-museum.
