American Airstrip and Foxholes

Now used to dry manioc

No pic at the moment -- Sorry!

What we say: 2.5 stars



The victory monument in Dak To is at a fork in the road, and if you take the left fork, the road leads, six kilometres on, to an airstrip used by the Americans during the war. It's tricky to find on your own, but if you're up for it, you can try asking locals for 'tham san bay' (Vietnamese for 'airstrip') which has a chance of getting your point across. When you get there, you'll find two long, concrete airstrips that are now being used to dry manioc in preparation for use as chicken feed. Beyond the airstrip are some fortifications -- mounds of bull-dozed dirt that still have foxholes dug into them.
