There's a lot to like about the DMZ Cafe
What we say:
There's a lot to like about the DMZ Cafe. The garrulous English-speaking owner Mr. Tinh is a great source of information and the rooms are dirt cheap -- though they all share a single bathroom. They're also some of the least private rooms we've ever seen -- the walls letting onto the hallway are taken up by large, glass windows that are imperfectly fitted with an odd assortment of heavy curtains. You'll feel a little as if you're inside some kind of exhibit in a strange little museum. But it's only for a day or two. During the rainy season, Mr. Tinh isn't around much and the place tends to go to pot a little.

Take this tour!
I enjoyed it anyway. Other than the Vihn Moc tunnels which are well worth a visit, there's not much left to see around the DMZ but a guide that was actually there during the war makes it interesting. I did the tour with Mr. Konh. He and Mr. Tihn were both translators for the US Marines during the war and they both do tours for fifteen dollars. You spend a lot of time on the back of a motorbike. As for the guesthouse, not bad but not great. When I was there it seemed to be the only place in town under ten dollars. It was five with shared bath, fan and TV but no English channels.
