The Vietcong really leave nothing to the imagination in this PUBG styled prison. You will find every single method of torture used against the Vietcong by life-sized human models carrying it out in the hot tin sheds. Brutal. Be ready to be horrified. If you...More

A must visit place of interest for anyone going to Vietnam. To travel this far without remembering the Vietnamese war which was only 50 years ago, would be a waste. Not huge in size but to think 400000 pow were held her was something else....More

Come here and take part to the history of the french war, when the french imprisoned vietnamese people in very cruel way. People should remember this bad time and never forget the history!

It was free and took about 30mins to walk through. Quite shocking but definitely worth of visiting. It was easy to arrive with a motorbike. Went to Sao beach and pagoda as well.

It is sobering to think that a country seems to be so at ease about horrendous brutality which happened such a short time ago. Many of the people involved must still be alive. The signs talk about a American puppet regime and ‘the enemy’ doing...More
