DIEN BIEN PHU AND THE VESTIAGES OF THE INDOCHINA WAR

To go to Dien Bien Phu is to discover one of the most beautiful rice valleys of North Vietnam and the historical remains of the battle that marked the end of French Indochina. Dien Bien Phu, land of graceful black Thai women, is ideally located on the fantastic north-west loop, on the road leading to the Sapa health resort.

The battle of Dien Bien Phu

A century of French presence in Indochina ended in what was called the "cuvette", meaning the "basin" in French, of Dien Bien Phu where General Henri Navarre gathered 15,000 men with the aim of loosening the grip of the Vietnamese communists on the wealthy Tonkin delta. With 57 days of very intense fighting, Dien Bien Phu was the longest and deadliest battle of the post-World War II period and marked the beginning of a worldwide process of decolonization.
