Vietnam Things to Do: 746 reviews and 1,138 photos


The DMZ, the former border zone along the 17th parallel, which separated North and South Vietnam, is one of the most interesting areas to travel around. Nowadays, you can walk over the Hien Luong Bridge from South to North. The war-time bunkers are still there on both sides of the Ben Hai River. Some of the fiercest battles of the Vietnam War were fought here in the DMZ and there are still mines and unexploded shells in the area, so don't wander too far off the beaten track.
