A cluster of Dien Bien Phu relics

The Dien Bien Phu battlefield, Dien Bien province, is 500km west of Hanoi.


The valley of Dien Bien was the location of an extremely heroic fight between Vietnamese people and the expeditionary army of French colonialism. The battle lasted 55 days and nights (13/3/1954 – 7/5/1954) with the defeat of the French. The Dien Bien Phu victory created a great resound that forced France to enter into Geneve Agreement for recognition of independence and peace for Vietnam.
