Hoa Lo Prison (Hanoi Hilton)

As grueling as it is, there was no chance we didn’t want to see this with our own eyes. We arrived here from our hotel by tuk tuk.

American Armed forces, including US Senator John McCain were imprisoned here. The imprisonment began in 1964. The POW’s were released in 1973 as part of Homecoming Operation.

The history of brutality goes back many years. Built in the 19th century it originally held up to 600 Vietnamese prisoners.
