Your guide & driver meet you at your hotel in Hoi An at 8.00 am. From Hoi An we drive about 140km in a private vehicle South along the National Highway then through rural countryside across to My Lai on the coast where you can visit the My Lai memorial museum.
In the museum you will learn what happened on that tragic day back in March 1968 when over 500 harmless local villagers (including men, women and children) were killed by American troops. After the slaughter the troops set fire to the village to cover up the massacre.
In the grounds around the museum you can see the Peace Memorial Park which is landscaped with statues and a recreation of the burnt out village. Each house in the village has a plaque in front recording the names and ages of the victims.
