The barbarity depicted by the models at this prison is terrible. But unlike the actual photos at the war museum in Saigon, it is hard to imagine the reality of it in the same way. What these people have been through is beyond comprehension, but it would be interesting to see an American record of the war also, as I... More

After reading about the prison I had to see. You here a lot about Auchzwich however the war crimes committed at this prison are covered up, and in regards to the 513 buried in the mass grave, literally. The place gives an insight into har barbaric modern man can be. It also tempers ones own thoughts into the future. It... More

An ugly reminder of the horrific actions of the people who ran this prison, not. POW camp. We didn't need any more reminders. Was this an exaggeration?

The prison on Phu Quoc is very interesting, but a "don't miss" attraction is the Phu Quoc Museum. It is filled with hundreds of artifacts and informational explanations about the history of the island, all within an elegant surrounding and expansive views of Long Beach. Surprised only the TripAdvisor has failed to include it on this Phu Quoc page. Don't... More

We didn't really know what to expect. It looks impressive from the outiside, and once you get in you start reading the signs, observing the places, seeing the sculptures and starting to imagine....and you realize how far humans can go, how horrible and cruel wars are, and what you need to know that happened in this part of the world....

We arrived at 11 am forgetting everything closes at 11 and re opens at 1. We hung around did a bit of exploring and went back. We were glad we did it was very interesting and a bit of an eye opener to think not so many years ago people were hammering nails into others heads. Worth a trip if... More

This is an eye opener if you have just came to Vietnam for the first time and want to know more about the history and the Vietnam war, It is a place where you get to see the darker side of American war and intervention in Vietnam and seeing how political ideologies have gotten many people involved.
