( DMZ tour from Hue – Hien Luong Bridge)

The Ben Hai River flows from the 17th parallel from West to East, between Dong Chan mountain and the Cua Tung Sea estuary. It separates the towns of Vinh Linh and Gio Linh in Quang Tri province by flowing over 100 kilometers. Hien Luong Bridge was constructed in 1928 with the help of residents of Vinh Linh District. The bridge was only 2m wide at that time and was constructed of wood with iron supports. It had limited space for pedestrians.

The bridge was rebuilt by the French with reinforced concrete in 1950 that was collapsed by the North Army to prevent enemies. It was 3.6m wide and 162m long.

After two years, a new bridge was constructed by the French to connect the Goi Linh and Vinh Linh Districts located on the two banks of the Ben Hai river. It is 178m long with 7 spans consisting of steel beams, a reinforced concrete bridge, and a pine paved surface.

To prevent any untoward situation, the US Army constructed a fencing facility with barbed wires and оvеrlаррing lауеrs.

To avoid any aggressive attacks, strong bumper lights were installed. A ghost border was created and soldiers were posted there. It was the most significant defense post in Mc Namara, according to the records. There were bunker mobile systems, ground artillery fire mechanisms, and hangars along the Ben Hai River.

Most of the electronic fence was dismantled and this area became an important tourist attraction of Con Tien and Doc area. It is a very beautiful and attractive tourist destination. The monument of victory can be seen on the hilltop. There is an old tank and a sign at the Doc Mieu Base that is the most prominent sign in the area.

Spent the day with Tien. Met at hotel and driven 400 kms. Stopped many places along the way and learnt about the sites. Was impressed by the scale of the DMZ, not big at all. With forts and patrols all along, with artillery and air strikes not at all far away, the destruction was overwhelming and at great cost to the people of Vietnam. An educational day, made special with local insight and feelings shared by our guide Tien.

Discover some of the places through which Vietnam remembers the Vietnam War on this historical tour from Huê. Instead of exploring these memorials and landmarks with a distracting tour group and a guide reading from a script, explore these places at your own pace with a lovely guide. Visit landmarks like the Long Hung Church and Hien Luong Bridge, which marks the war’s Demilitarized Zone, and go deep into the Vịnh Moc tunnels that many Vietnamese lived in during the war.
