About Travel to Hue
Hue is a fantastic place to visit and should be included in any travel itinerary for visiting Vietnam, particularly if you have never been there before. Hue has a rich history having once been the Imperial capital of Vietnam. Hue is also a very beautiful and pleasant city which is not too busy and overall great value for money. The city benefits from having the wide Perfume River flowing through its centre, gently sloping hills around it and the majestic Truong Tien Bridge, designed by none other than French structural engineer Gustave Eiffel, linking the new town to the old town and its Imperial Citadel. Hue is somewhere you should plan to spend at least two days because there is so much to see and it’s a nice place to be.
Amongst the most interesting places to visit in Hue are:
- The Imperial Citadel: UNESCO listed world heritage site which was the home of the last Imperial Dynasty of Vietnam from 1804 to 1945. The Imperial Citadel was extensively damaged during the Vietnam War but large parts of the former royal compound have been restored as part of an ongoing project and some very fine pieces of architecture, most notably the gates, survived the fighting.
- The Tomb of Emperor Khai Dinh: Arguably the best of the many Imperial tombs built in and around Hue. The Tomb of Emperor Khai Dinh run up a steep hill in levels with a fantastically ornate crypt at the top incorporating materials imported from France with Vietnam designs.
- Pagoda of the Celestial Lady: 7 storey pagoda on the banks of the Perfume River. The pagoda was constructed in 1601 and associated with many ancient legends, as well as significant events in modern Vietnamese history, making it one of Vietnam’s most important historical monuments.
