Description

Start your trip with a stop at the Pig market of My Lai. Here, you can witness and observe scenes of daily life, carried out by the local townspeople. On the way to My Lai, you will visit Chien Dan Cham towers, one of the Champa towers. My Lai village has developed historical significance for solemn reasons, primarily related to the mass murder of civilians that took place here by the US during the Vietnam War. On the 16th of March, 1968, soldiers of Charlie Company - 1st Battalion, the 20th Infantry Regiment and the 11th Brigade of the American Division entered into My Lai Village looking for Viet Cong soldiers. American soldiers suspected that enemies were hiding in the village and were being protected by villagers. This unfortunately led to the mass murder of over 300 unarmed civilians including women, children and elderly parents. This tour to the historical site of My Lai will provide you with reverent insight into the tragedies of the Vietnam War. During the tour, you will also have the opportunity to visit the museum, meet the local villagers and walk around the village before being taken back to Da Nang.
