DIEN BIEN PHU
Nestled in a valley near the Lao border, Dien Bien Phu remains one of the most remote parts of Vietnam. Surrounded by steep heavily forested hills, Dien Bien Phu was the site of a decisive battle in 1954 between Viet Minh forces and the French. Ultimately, it was a result of the historic battle that took place here that forced the French government to abandon its attempts to resume colonial control of Indochina.
A1 Hill is located in Muong Thanh Ward, Dien Bien Phu City, which was an important position during the war against French invaders in Dien Bien Phu.
