Hue to DMZ by Car
Vietnamese Demilitarized Zone ran from east-west near the center of present-day Vietnam (spanning more than a hundred kilometers), about a hundred kilometers north of the city of Hue. It ran along the Ben Hai River for much of its length, and an island nearby was controlled by North Vietnamese forces during the Vietnam War. Although it was nominally described as being at "the 17th parallel," almost all of the zone lies to the south of the parallel, with only a small portion of the zone near the eastern end actually including the parallel - Join our Hue to DMZ Private Car to discover Historical Hien Luong Bridge, Ben Hai River, Vinh Moc Tunnels, Khe Sanh Combat Base:
