8:00am we start from Ho Chi Minh City and drive to Vung Tau, visiting battle sites such as the Long Tan Cross, the Horseshoe and the Long Phuoc Tunnels en-route, and after lunch, Nui Dat (SAS Hill) and the Ba Ria Orphanage.
We always try to find some of the local Vietnam veterans who fought in the remarkable battle of Long Tan. Although extensively documented by the survivors of Australia’s heaviest engagement of the war, little is known of the Viet Cong’s actions and ultimate defeat at the hands of a heavily outnumbered opponent.
Our clients find that bringing the former protagonists together with a good interpreter and plenty of rice wine is an unforgettable experience for both sides! The Long Tan – Nui Dat Battle Field
