Day 7: Dien Bien Phu


“Rest day”

Woke up very stiff this morning and told myself to stretch – later….. Did the sights by bike and took int he battlefields, museum and historic buildings. The battle that the Vietnamese won here basically spelled the end of the French occupation and so holds real significance for the locals, as well as Vietnamese people more generally. The town itself isn’t much but the history is amazing and its remoteness makes it appealling, with lots of people opting for bikes over scooters (pictured).
