The Imperial City of Hue is located on the Perfume River on the opposite bank of the river to the railway station. The site is impressively large: an area of 2 km by 2 km originally surrounded by wall and with a moat on 3 sides and the Perfume River on the fourth. Construction of the city commenced in the early 1800s as the capital city of the last royal dynasty of Vietnam, which finished in 1945. Unfortunately, not much of the original city remains following fierce fighting between American and Vietnam forces in 1967. Out of more than 160 buildings only 10 remained intact thereafter. Despite the near complete destruction of the city there are still impressive things to see there, and more recently the Vietnam authorities have started to make efforts to improve visitors experiences by restoring the city and recreating scenes from city life back in the 1800s with ceremonial changing of the Imperial Guards and similar rituals being performed by actors and musicians. The 3 main things to see at the Imperial City are:

  • The Thai Hoa Palace: Once the Emperor’s coronation hall. This is the largest building that remains intact.
  • Ngo Mon Gate: The most beautiful of the City Gates.
  • Troung Sanh Residence: The Palace of Longevity has been recently renovated. The Palace is surrounded by its own moat.
