Often overlooked, Hue, pronounced “hway”, sprawls across the banks of the Song Huong Perfume River located in Central Vietnam.
Once serving as the capital city, Hue offers cultural and historical value. Although suffering 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 complex encompasses rich architecture and beautifully landscaped gardens.
Due to its former past, the city is also renowned for its Imperial-style cuisine.
