Welcome to Demilitarised Zone
The area just south of the DMZ was the scene of some of the bloodiest battles in America’s first televised war, turning Quang Tri, the Rockpile, Khe Sanh, Lang Vay and Hamburger Hill into household names.
Fast forward several decades and there’s not much left to see. Most sites have been cleared, the land reforested or planted with rubber and coffee. Only Ben Hai, Vinh Moc and Khe Sanh have small museums. Unless you’re a veteran or military buff, you might find it a little hard to appreciate the place – which is all the more reason to hire a knowledgeable guide.
