Lying not really far from Hanoi, Son Tay is a town belonging to the old Ha Tay province, now is currently a part of Hanoi. Our Northern Vietnam motorbike trips will cross this town on the 1st day of almost every motorbike tour to go up North Vietnam.
This town was related to a famous prisioner-rescuing case in Vietnam War. On November 20-21, 1970, a military force with the participation of USAF Special Operations and rescue personnel and U.S. Army Special Forces, supported by U.S. Navy Carrier Task force 77 attacked the Son Tay prison camp, which was about 50 miles of Hanoi. The purpose of this raid was aiming at rescuing the US prisoners believed to be captured here.

In that area, Vietnam government has hold the meeting to make the strategic plans to contribute to the glorious victory of Dien Bien Phu battlefield in 1954. Moreover, many rules and regulations of the country was proposed and put into reality from ATK DinhHoa, such as farming land renovation policies, military courses, etc. ATK was considered as military capital of Vietnam at that time and this place is where many diplomatic ceremonies was conducted.
