Huu Tiep lake with the Downed B-52 is a very sad reminding of the time of war. I love how everything is left as it was. Definately Worth visiting (y) (y)

You have to walk through a number of narrow Vietnamese lanes or use a bike taxi or Tuk Tuk to reach this place. The lake has shrunk over the years but in that remains the greatest Memorial to the Vietnam War. The downed B 52...More

I read previous reviews so was realistic about my expectations. Located in a residential area off the beaten track and amongst homes this place brings the war to the forefront of your mind. The crew who probably died and the people defending their city. The...More

You walk down proper vietnamese lanes to these two fishing lakes split by a little road. There is a monument to the Ha Noi air defence teams and the remains of the aircraft. Very low key and poignant

Some historical information about the war and what Vietnam has been through. Interesting to see. A little hard to find but my guide took me right there.

Interesting to visit. Of course, typical Communist propaganda one sided view in all descriptions. They don't mention that these B-52's severely bombed Hanoi to peace talks. The Communist could only put up with so many bombs. It took several bombing to convince the Communist.

Now generally known as B52 Lake, Huu Tiep is a tranquil, sleepy backwater. It’s a small lake, surrounded by traditional, French colonial houses and well worth a visit, as it really brings home the reality of war. The water is still and calm now, but...More
