Hue

Located on the bank of the Song Huong- Perfume River, Hue, the capital of Thua Thien Hue province in Central Vietnam, is 700 km from Hanoi, 1100km from Ho Chi Minh City, and only a few miles from the sea. Until 1945 Hue was the national capital, the political, cultural and religious center of Vietnam under the control of Nguyen Dynasty. Most well-known for its historic values, Hue has been recognized as one of the World Heritage Sites by UNESCO.

Comments: A nice town with some interesting walks through the back streets and houses. Friendly people all keen to say hello. The town is blessed by the river with its offshoots flowing through the middle and the authorities use it to advantage with nice public areas. Good foods are easy to find and although there is no public transport taxis are abundant and cheap. Overall: We liked and would return.

 


Hue Citadel:

Occupying a large, bounded area on the north side of Perfume River, four citadels were comprised to create the Capital city Hoang Thanh (Imperial City) for royal palaces and shrines, Tu Cam Thanh (Forbidden Purple City) for royal residences, Dai Noi (Inner city) and Tran Binh Dai, which are exclusively ancient architecture. Tourists are expected to spend at least one day to visit the whole complex. They can also catch a taxi, hire a bicycle, rent a “xich lo”- Vietnamese cycle if do not feel like walking around the site.

Emperors Tombs:

There are several tombs of ancient emperors scattered along the Perfume River such as Minh Mang, Khai Dinh, Tu Duc, Dong Khanh, etc. On Cam Khe Hill, Minh Mang Tomb was built in 1843, with the area of 18 hectare, 3-meter-high defence wall, and nearly 20 architectural constructions. Lying in the middle of a pine forest, Tu Duc Tomb belongs to Duong Xuan Moutain, 8km  from Hue.

Pagodas:

Featured in various songs and poems, Thien Mu Pagoda has become an essential part of Hue City. With the symbol of the octagonal 21-meter-high tower, the pagoda is the perfect combination of  architectural work and picturesque nature.

Bong Ba Market Hue Vietnam


One of the must see sites in Hue is Dong Ba Market. Roaming around this food market would add new color to your visit to this Vietnamese city. Dong Ba Market in Old Hue is near the position where the Dong Ba Canal merges with the Perfume River


The best place to get the true flavor of a city is to head to the local market. Walking the bustling streets, and alleyways of the Hue Vietnam marketplace is an assault on all the senses. Aromas of frying fresh donuts, and other treats fill your nose. The squawk of chickens, the throttle of motor bikes, and chatter between vendors fill your ears. Your eyes are saturated with nearly every color of the rainbow found in the fruits and vegetables of the Hue market. - See more at: http://www.gettingstamped.com/2014/03/31/colors-of-the-market-hue-vietnam/#sthash.SFlfgGeS.dpuf
