– Vietnam's Hue Welcomes Veterans for Battle of Hue City Memorial This February 2012

The Battle of Hue City, one of the most infamous conflicts of the Vietnam War, is the reason that many US service veterans and their counterparts from the Vietnamese army will be heading for the city again this coming February.

Hue, Vietnam, January 13, 2012 --( A two-week memorial period lasting from 5th to 19th February 2012 will see visitors heading into Hue from all over the world to commemorate one of the bloodiest battles from the Vietnam War and to remember their fallen comrades.

The memorial covers both the Battle of Hue City and also the Tet Offensive, which took place in South Vietnam. Veterans who took part in the battles and their family members regularly travel to Vietnam on an annual basis to commemorate the anniversary. This year marks the 44th anniversary of the Tet Offensive and the Battle of Hue City.

There are many events organised for people to enjoy which commemorate the two battles, and they are hosted by Colonel Chuck Meadows, himself a former company commander during the Battle of Hue City.

With so many additional visitors in town to take part in the memorial festivities and events, leading online hotel room price comparator advises that the choice of hotel Hue city centre has available could be limited.

Lek Boonlert, marketing head of, says, “Many hundreds of people head to Hue each year to take part in these memorial services, and that shows no sign of changing this coming February. As such we recommend early booking of hotel rooms to be sure of getting a good level of choice and availability.”
