Along the QL14 on the northern edge of War Zone D, Dong Xoai was strategically located. In the summer of 1965 a violent battle took place in and around the town of Dong Xoai about 50 miles north of Saigon. The battle involved VC and units from ARVN, US Special Forces and US regular forces. The sites of the battle are possible to visit if one knows specifially where they are, but in town there is a monument erected as there are in so many other places around the country.

 

How to get there

Dong Xoai is located about 70 kilometers north east of Ho Chi Minh City and is easily accessible along QL 14 from QL13.
