MEMORY OF WAR

5/5
5/5

War is a painful lesson for all nations, but the world has never stopped gunfire. Many people know about Vietnam only because of the wars in the past, but the Vietnamese people today are the most peace-loving people. By exploring the monuments and stories of the fiercest wars in Vietnam in the 20th century, you will have a panorama of a period of world history, a connection with the human loss and sacrifice, and deeply understand the value of stability and peace. The half-day tour will lead you through Military History Museum, Hanoi flag tower, Hoa Lo Prison and B-52 Victory Museum.
