Welcome to Vietnam War Travel

Welcome to our Vietnam War site where we hope to be taking you on a journey to the places where the history of the Vietnam War was written.  We are a small team of war history enthusiasts who have been traveling regularly to Vietnam over the last decades. On our site you will find unique documentation of war sites in Vietnam as they look today including text, pictures and video. Our aim is to profile not just the major and more well-known former camps and battlefields of the war but also some small not so well known sites like LZs that were still significant in the overall war.

If you have come here looking for a specific location, we hope you will find it. If not, then please get in touch with us and maybe we can add it to our planning, but make sure to also look around the site and discover other interesting locations. To fully enjoy the content of this website make sure to also click on the videos that we have shot on most of the sites we have visited.

We have placed all the sites in sections by the former Corps Tactical Zones I - IV together with a special section for Saigon.

We hope you enjoy looking at our pictures and videos as much as we enjoyed taking them. Start with the sections below or via the menus above to begin exploring.
