CENTRAL HIGHLANDS BATTLEFIELD
The Central Highlands covers the southern part of the Annamete Range and comprises the provinces of Lam Dong, Daklak, Gia Lai and Kontum. The area is home to several ethnic minority groups with only about two million people, but has always been considered important due to its strategic location: close proximity to the Cambodian border, Laotian border, the Ho Chi Minh Trail and national route 1. During the Vietnam War, considerable fighting took place in this area which is now renowned for its cool climate, beautiful mountain scenery and hill-tribal culture.
MY LAI MASSACRE DAY TRIP
My Lai, in the central Vietnam district of Son My, 70 km south of Da Nang, was a watershed in the history of mordern U.S combat and a turning point in the puplic perception of the Vietnam War.
On March 16, 1968, the angry and frustrated men of Charlie Company,11 Brigade, American Division, entered the village of My Lai. The Search and Destroy mission degenerated into the massacre of over 300 unarmed civilians including women, children and the elderly. Lt. William Calley ordered his men to enter the village firing. There were no reports of opposing fire.
This day trip to the historical My Lai sight from Da Nang or Hoi An allows you to visit the museum, meet the local villagers and tour around the village.

HAMBURGER HILL - THE DMZ
The narrow 40 kilometer long Ashau valley was an arm of the Ho Chi Minh Trail funneling troops and supplies toward Hue and Danang. At the north end of the valley was the major North Vietnamese Army (NVA) staging area known as Base Area 611. Because of its importance to the North Vietnamese plan for victory, the Ashau valley became a major battle ground from the earliest days of the U.S involvement in South Vietnam. Our first stop is the old site of Ashau Special Forces Camp, overrun by the NVA in 1966 and the next site is the infamous Hamburger Hill, the last bloodiest battle between the U.S troops and the NVA troops in the Vietnam War. The battle took place on Ap Bia mountain or Hill 937 in the rugged, jungle-shrouded mountains along the Laotian border with South Vietnam. After 10 day battle ( from May 10 to May 20 1969 ), the U.S 101st Airborne Division took the hill , US troops fought a brutal battle up the hill before finally capturing it on May 20. Due to the severity of the fighting, Hill 937 was dubbed "Hamburger Hill.
THE DMZ - VINH MOC TUNNELS
Deep beneath the dark earth, hidden from screeching bombers and harbouring desperate soldiers, the people of Vinh Linh, Quang Tri lived for many years in the now famous Vinh Moc Tunnel. They survived, and even prospered in their makeshift underground community. During that time, 17 children were born in the tunnels, each of whose lives is a testament to just how perfect the complex network of caves and warrens were at protecting those forces within. As time goes by, it has become both a historical evidence and a tourist destination for discovering a heroic period of Vietnam’s history.
DMZ FULL DAY TOUR
The DMZ lay at the 17th parallel and was created by an agreement known as the Geneva Agreement. In reality, the DMZ extended 10 km on either side of the Ben Hai River and ran west to east from the Laotian border to the South China Sea. The DMZ was breached by the North Vietnamese Army when they constructed the Ho Chi Minh Trail that allowed for the transport of troops and supplies to the National Liberation Front in the south. The U.S, in an attempt to stop the flow of troops and supplies, built a series of fire bases including Camp Carroll, Fuller, The Rockpile, Con Tien, Vandergrift, Khe Sanh Combat Base, Lang Vei Special Forces Camp…. along Route 9, about six miles south of and parallel to the DMZ. That series of bases became known as the “McNamara Line,” so named for Robert S. McNamara”, then U.S. secretary of defence. Some of the war's fiercest fighting and bloodiest battles occurred along that line. Such areas as Khe Sanh, Con Tien, Hambuger Hill… are forever etched into the minds of the soldiers who fought there and survived.
