3 February Park – The Green Space In Hue City
Vietnamese people call the park as “3 February” to honor the significant important events happening on the 3rd February 1968. On the 30th January 1968, the Viet Cong (Việt Cộng) joined with the force of the People’s Army of Vietnam to launch attacks on towns, cities, and villages in South Vietnam in a military operation called the Tet Offensive.
It was the bloodiest fighting that took place in Hue city and the bloodiest day on the 3rd February always exists in the mind of Vietnamese people. After that day, about 3,000 – 9,000 soldiers and 5,000 civilians died.
