I wouldn’t make a special trip here; but if drinking through it is worth a short visit. Underwhelming but historically significant place. And some photo opportunities here.

For me it was an ok visit but if you put the weight of history behind this, maybe it’s a one time visit. This is usually part of A day trip package along with Tam Coc, which I took. Now it cannot be ruled out...More
