Vietnam War Legacy Tour

17 Day Tour, from £3095 per person

Vietnam has an interesting and varied history, some of which hinges on conflicts the country has suffered under. This Vietnam holiday aims to visit key historical sites to provide an insight into the clashes along with allowing plenty of time for general exploration of the country. Visits on the tour will include the famous Cu Chi Tunnels, a network of tunnels inhabited, often for prolonged periods, by the Viet Cong during the American conflict plus a stop at the nearby Ba Den battlefield site - take a cable car to the top of the mountain for panoramic views. Explore the DMZ, once the dividing line between northern and southern forces where ruins of American military bases still exist and spend time at the War Remnants Museum in Ho Chi Minh City which provides a truly fascinating photographic timeline of the American conflict and makes for a moving and worthwhile visit.
