Luxury Travel Ltd. Kicks Off Helicopter Services for Veterans to Visit Old Battle Fields in Ba Ria Vung Tau

The company ( will be launching day trips by private charter helicopter from Ho Chi Minh City to Ba Ria Vung Tau for interested travelers.

Hanoi, Vietnam, June 01, 2012 -- The Luxury Travel Company is Vietnam’s first luxury tour company and full travel service agency. Luxury Travel is experienced in providing special services and unique tourism products to luxury-minded global travelers.

Long Tan is a village in Ba Ria Vung Tau Province, Vietnam. When it was part of South Vietnam, it was part of Phuoc Tuy Province. It is renowned for its rubber plantations and is home to a very small population of roughly 1,200 people.

The Battle of Long Tan is arguably the most famous battle fought by the Australian Army during the Vietnam War. The battle took place from August 18-19, 1966 and was fought in a rubber plantation near the village of Long Tan, about four kilometres northeast of Vung Tau.

The action occurred when D Company of the 6th Battalion, Royal Australian Regiment (6RAR), part of the 1st Australian Task Force (1 ATF), encountered the Viet Cong (VC) 275 Regiment and elements of the D445 Local Forces Battalion. D Company was supported by other Australian units, as well as New Zealand and United States personnel.

The battle is often used in Australian officer training as an example of the importance of combining and coordinating infantry, artillery, armour and military aviation.

Your tour of this historic site will start with a 07:30 pick up from the main lobby of your hotel in HCMC (aka Saigon). After breakfast, travelers will drive to Tan Son Nhat Heliport to fly to Ba Ria Vung Tau. You will fly over the coastal city and have 15 minutes in the sky to take in the panoramic view of the former Nui Dat Task Force base. Then, you will land at Vung Tau Airport. “This bird’s eye view is great and quite emotionally moving, especially for veterans,” said David Nguyen Sales and Marketing Manager of Luxury Travel Company.

Luxury Travel’s driver will wait for travelers there, and then transfer them to Long Tan Nui Dat to see the remains of the vast camp. The former runway is now a wide street in the local village and what was the helipad is now a soccer field. A school established by Australian veterans is also nearby. Later, you will drive past the location of the Horseshoe (access not permitted these days due to mining activity) and go to the DeCourtney Rubber Plantation, then pause to reflect at the Long Tan Cross before helicoptering back to Ho Chi Minh City where travelers will arrive at 17:00 and return by car to hotel.

The company provides private charter airplane or helicopter to Con Dao, Phu Quoc islands.
