From this viewpoint to the east it is just 40 km to the Vietnamese border, where the De-Militarized-Zone (17th paralell) was. The Ho-Chi-Minh trail started from North Vietnam into Laos, crossed the road #9 at Xepone and moved south on a network of paths through Laos and Cambodia into South Vietnam. This smalltown received more tons of bombs then entire Europe in WWII.<br><br><img src=http://www.googleearthhacks.com/images/new/784700xepone.jpg>
