MY LAI – JEEP TOUR (private)
Visit one of Vietnam’s most significant memorial sites. In a quiet suburban area of Quang Ngai province a village remains a memorial to the 504 civilians that lost their lives in 1968 during the My Lai massacre. The incident became public knowledge in 1969 and prompted widespread outrage around the world.
07.00 Your jeep and guide will meet you at your hotel. Your tour begins with the journey to My Lai through stunning local villages in Quang Nam before we join Highway 1. We take a break en route for a local drip coffee in a small Vietnamese town.
09.30 Arrive at the site of the famous My Lai memorial site, where your village guide will take you to visit the house of evidence, a museum housing documents, photos and artifacts from the war. You will hear the stories of the horrific atrocities that once happened here and how the village has since recovered. In a town where almost every family has been met by loss, it is genuinely uplifting to see how they have overcome the past, with hope for a better future. We then take some time to visit the nearby village and farms. We then take a short drive to Chu Lai the site of the former US military base.
