Muong Thanh-markt
Dien Bien Phu

"While not much of this place has been preserved, it remains a meaningful place in Vietnam's history. The view is fantastic, with all the big trees around, we had a beautiful view of the entire city. No wonder why this hill was considered a strategic location.
We visited this hill at the end of March and a month later flowers would bloom everywhere. That must be very spectacular!
While not much information is provided about the battle and the war, it is still a fun place to visit and enjoy the view."

The market
