Day 2 : Long Hai Beach – Long Tan Nui Dat Battlefield (B,L)

From 8:00 am to 8:30 am, our tour guide will pick you up to go to the former Australian military base at Nui Dat, the Long Tan Cross and Long Phuoc Tunnels – this is one for those with a specialist interest in Australia's role in the Vietnam War.

Long Tan is deeply etched into ANZAC folklore. In the late afternoon of August 18, 1966, D Company, 6 RAR – despite being heavily outnumbered – fought off a large Viet Cong assault of regimental strength during a grueling three-hour battle.

The first stop on this full-day tour is the former site of Australia's Nui Dat Task Force Base (Nui Dat SAS Hill). The occupation of Nui Dat required the removal of all inhabitants from within a 4 kilometer radius of the base, therefore the people of Long Tan and Long Phuoc villages were forcibly resettled. Little remains of this military camp today except the columns of the main gate. The former runway is now a street in the local village, and the old helipad is now a soccer field.

Afterward, drive past the location of Horseshoe FSB (access is not permitted due to the continued presence of land mines) to the Discourtesy Rubber Plantation. Visit the Long Tan Cross Memorial, a focal point for remembrance, before continuing on to the Long Phuoc Tunnels. Like other tunnels systems found in Vietnam the Long Phuoc Tunnels included meeting areas, first aid stations, and fighting pits.

We have lunch before returning to Long Hai Beach.

Free afternoon for leisure and stay overnight in Long Hai Beach.

Day 3 : Long Hai Beach – Ho Chi Minh city (B)

After having breakfast and checking out at the hotel, our driver will take you back to Ho Chi Minh city.
