Da Nang to Vinh Moc Tunnels

During the Vietnam War, an entire village moved underground to avoid the constant American bombing.

From Da NangBridging Interests

Founded by the Chams at the end of the 2nd century, Da Nang has since grown to become the 4th largest city in Vietnam. The 30 kilometer stretch of coast, centered around the famed My Khe or Lang Co Beaches has always been Da Nang’s main draw, and now the Han waterfront is lined with modernists highrises, and an ever-improving restaurant scene. In the bustling downtown, one of the main sights is the famed ‘dragon bridge’, which is the longest in the country at 666 meters. If you need a break from the crowds, you can head to the beautifully manicured Phap Lam Pagoda, or to the Lady Buddha Da Nang, the tallest Buddha statue in Vietnam. If you have, or plan on visiting any of the ancient Cham temples, be sure visit the Cham Museum Da Nang, which exhibits hundreds of statues from the 7th to the 15th centuries.

Military Memories

To Vinh Moc Tunnels Gone to Ground

The Vinh Moc Tunnels were created by the people of this small fishing village when the American military, thinking they were aiding the North Vietnamese, began bombing the area. Between 1966 and 1972, the US dropped an estimated 9,000 tons of bombs on the area - an average of 7 tons of ordinance per person. By the end of the war, the tunnel complex grew to include wells, kitchens, individual housing, and medical areas, while preventing even a single casualty. Today, a guided tour brings visitors into this essentially unchanged underground village, which, while still cramped, is decidedly more comfortable that the Viet Cong’s infamous military tunnels. At the on-site museum, you can see photos and relics to get a clearer picture of life underground.
