Hue City and Ho Chi Minh City.

There is some symmetry between Hue City and Ho Chi Minh City during the Tet Offensive.

Vietnamese soldiers stormed the American Embassy.
American soldiers stormed the Imperial Palace.

Hue City

Saigon was the American Embassy, Hue City was the Imperial Palace, and Khesanh was a temporary field outpost built by American Marines so as to defend against invasions from the Ho Chi Minh Trail.

Saigon and Hue City were ports; Khesanh was on the border with Laos.
