Hue

This former capital is a refined and historic city, with a picturesque setting on the banks of the Perfume River and a captivating diverse past. Hue’s historic sites make it an intriguing place to explore.

It was the imperial capital from the 17th to the 19th century and being blessed with splendid emperors’ tombs, ancient pagodas and the remains of the grand citadel, the city retains its royal charm. Visit the Imperial Citadel, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, to see its magnificent architecture and gardens as your guide explains the events and the intrigue of this former royal court. Despite being the setting for one of the Vietnam War’s fiercest battles, there are some incredibly well-preserved sections and others which are being lovingly restored. It is worth visiting Thien Mu pagoda, Hue’s best-preserved religious monument set in the lush countryside with opportunities to meet local farmers, discover traditional skills, techniques and artisan crafts. Spending time in imperial Hue, taking in the many years of rich history, enjoying the riverside and lantern clan bridges, wandering through the charming streets and delving deeper into Hue’s history through its magnificent food, including the traditional Hue royal tea, will make you a better person. One of the best ways to travel south from Hue, is to go over the wonderfully scenic Hai Van Pass, offering incredible views out to the South China Sea.
