It takes  1h 10 min and nonstop from Noi Bai airport to Dien Bien Phu.  The Battle of Dien Bien Phu was the decisive engagement in the First Indochina War (1946–1954). After French forces occupied the Dien Bien Phu valley in late 1953, Viet Minh commander Vo Nguyen Giap amassed troops and placed heavy artillery in caves of the mountains overlooking. The French planned to lure the Viet Minh, led by Ho Chi Minh, into the valley by sending 16,000 French troops as bait. They belives that it is an impregnable fortress. The French, however, did not count on the brilliant leadership of General Vo Nguyen Giap who somehow managed to place the Vietnamese artillery on the surrounding ridges. From March until May 1954 the Viet Minh pounded the French positions until the French capitulated with the loss of 3,000 men. It is estimated that the Viet Minh lost more than twice that number. There was the first time in a major military campaign, an Asian army colony defeated the army of a European power. Later you visit the headquarter of General Giap during the Dien Bien Phu campaign. We will have the chance to meet several of the different ethnic minority tribes here when we visit the villages of both the Thai and H' mong people.

Tour of Vietnam

Impress travel were amazing. Did my bookings with Daniel for our tour of Vietnam and I must say Daniel was very professional and prompt with his services. All the arrangement, plans, pick-up & drop-off services, hotels, vehicles, sightseeing tours and guides were spot on and excellent. Did 4 nights Hanoi, 1 night Hà Long Bay cruise, 3 nights Hoian, 4 nights Saigon and 1 night in Can Tho. It was totally awesome. Every part of the journey was superbly arranged and planned. I will highly recommend Impress Travel for anyone interested in visiting Vietnam. Very organized and reliable!
