Dien Bien Phu, Vietnam315 contributions100 helpful votes
I first came to Dien Bien in 2009 and fell in love with the people, the history, the landscape, that first weekend. Sure it is no theme park ..... but much much more if you want it to be. The colourful ethnic minority people (mainly Thai and H'mong) largely retain their cultural and traditional lifestyles. The battle history, although tragic in some ways, none the less epitomises a simple peoples struggle for freedom and independence against their self imposed colonial masters. The landscape is incredible, in the valley itself and in any day trip you do beyond the towering mountains that rim the Muong Thanh valley. Plenty of hiking, bird watching, bike riding and general enjoyment to be had for a 1 hour flight from Hanoi that costs around $100 return ... and lots of accommodation options. For mine, a trip to Dien Bien Phu, and around Dien Bien province is an unexploited tourist destination. And if you want to help people in one of the poorest rural provinces in the Vietnam ..... there is plenty of opportunity to open your heart without opening your wallet. Plan ahead and a trip to Dien Bien will change your life.
