The DMZ is an interesting place to visit for people who enjoy history. Otherwise, it will probably be a boring experience. There is really not much to see or do there. 20 minutes should be sufficient for visiting this site.

The old demilitarised zone in Vietnam is basically a must-see for history lovers. We joined a local tour costing 23 USD a person. Luckily our tour guide was one who was able to speak fluent English, but I am sure not everyone is so fortunate. Two of my friends who went on the tour two days before encountered a guide... More

Once the most heavily bombed strip of land in the world, a bridge connects the areas formerly designated as North and South Vietnam. If you're in the area it is more than worth a visit.

We were told by our guide that there wasn't much to see at the DMZ and he said its not worth the journey. We had reservations once we heard this and wondered whether to go or not. We decided to take the chance and went. So glad we did! It was really interesting and the tour was very interactive. You... More

We took a tour through the DMZ with what appears to be one of only a couple of companies that run them all. It was an absolute highlight of our trip and definitely worth doing. Our guide spoke perfect English and was incredibly friendly and helpful. The driver however had us afraid for our lives multiple times (and not in... More

The museum has a nice photo collection which gives a good impression of what was going on here during he war. However, if you really want some background information on the bridge and the monument, we advise you to visit the site with a guide. Overall a must see if you're interested in the Vietnam war.

Like all the DMZ sites there isn't much actually there to gawp at but it is interesting in the context of understanding the war better - but you will either need prior knowledge (or better still) a good guide. There is a small picture museum at the DMZ but it won't tell you much. Driving down the raised mound to... More

Stopped here on our way from Phong Nha to Hue and we were hoping for something more. There is a small museum that we walked thru and as you can imagine, the displays and commentary were not complimentary in any way towards the Americans. Other than that you will have to use your imagination.
