After pickup from your hotel by the driver and guide, you will start your trip with a drive from Da Nang and the first stop is the Pig market of My Lai, where you can see the scenes of the daily life of people here. On the way to My Lai, you will visit Khuong My Towers one of the Champa towers. My Lai village has sadly become famous because of the mass murder of civilians during the US – Viet Nam War. On 16th March 1968, the soldiers of the Charlie Company – 1st Battalion, the 20th Infantry Regiment, and the 11th Brigade of the American Division entered My Lai Village looking for the Viet Cong soldiers. Some American soldiers suspected that some of the enemies were hiding in the village, protected by the villagers. This led to the mass murder of over 300 unarmed civilians including women, children, and elderly parents.
This trip to the historical site of My Lai will give you more insight into the tragedies of the US – Viet Nam War. You will visit the museum, meet the local villagers and go around the village before going back to Da Nang. You also will have the local lunch in between of the tour.
