Hue is a popular destination for tourists. Hue is scenically located on the Perfume River, with lots of places of interest to visit and plenty of good restaurants, hotels and lively bars. The main visitor attraction in Hue is the Imperial Citadel. Hue was the capital city of Vietnam from 1804 until 1945 and the Imperial Citadel was the residence of the last Emperors of Vietnam. The citadel covers an area of approximately 10 sqaure kilometres and there is plenty to see despite large parts of the compound having been destroyed during the battle of Hue in 1968. For many visitors the most impressive parts of the citadel are its colourful Chinese style gates.
Besides the Imperial Citadel, Hue has two other very popular tourist attractions:
- Pagoda of the Celestial Lady: This 7 storey pagoda built on the banks of the Perfume River was constructed in 1601. A number of important legends and myths are asssociated with the pagoda, which in more modern times has been rallying point for popular protest, such as during the Vietnam War when a monk at the temple set himself on fire in protest against the South Vietnamese government’s repression of relgious worship.
- Tomb of Khai Dinh: This elaborate tiered tomb stretching up a hillside was built as the final resting place for the Emperor Khai Dinh who died in 1931. The inside of the crypt is opulent, with statues and decorations imported from France and paid for by severe tax increases on his impoverished subjects.
