Hue

Hue, pronounced “hway”, sprawls across the banks of the Song Huong Perfume River located in Central Vietnam.

Often overlooked, Hue is a city of cultural and historical value and once served as the capital city.

Although Hue suffered much damage during the Vietnam War, the city and most of the monuments are largely unharmed.

The impressive 19th century citadel surrounded by a moat showcases this former ancient capital with an intact appearance of an Imperial City.

Listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the massive complex with rich architecture and beautifully landscaped gardens features hundreds of monuments and ruins, such as the Forbidden Purple City, royal tombs, pagodas and temples.

Renowned for its Imperial-style cuisine, Hue also has some lusty and tasty street level flavours, be sure to try a crispy Banh Khoai, a pan friend crepe typically stuffed with shrimp and pork.
