About Travel to Hue
Hue is one of the most interesting and enjoyable places to visit in Vietnam. The laid back city centre, scenically located on the Perfume River, has fantastic facilities for foreign visitors including well priced hotels, good restaurants and lively bars. These are not, however, the principle attractions for the city’s many foreign visitors but rather the many important historical sites.
Imperial Citadel in Hue
The most famous of these historical sites is the Imperial Citadel. From 1802 to 1945 Hue was the capital city of Vietnam and the home of the last Imperial dynasty of Vietnam. The country’s Imperial rulers built themselves a massive royal palace in the centre of Hue covering an area of approximately 10 square kilometres.
Unfortunately, a lot of the original buildings were destroyed during fighting between the American armed forces and a combined force of North Vietnamese Army and Viet Cong fighters during the Battle of Hue in 1968. Since the end of the war a significant part of the original citadel has been careful reconstructed and granted UNESCO World Heritage Site status. Allow 2 to 4 hours to explore this massive former palace.

In addition to the Imperial Citadel, Hue has plenty of other places to visit the best of which are:
- The Pagoda of the Celestial Lady: Built in 1601, this 7 level pagoda is located a couple of kilometres outside Hue city centre on the banks of the Perfume River. As well as a beautiful building, the pagoda is an historically significant building associated with a number of important legends and more recent historical events.
- The Tomb of Emperor Khai Dinh: 7 km to the south of Hue, this amazing Imperial tomb climbs in levels up a steep sided hill. The crypt at the top is immensely impressive and includes decorative features imported at great expense from France, paid for by high tax rises imposed on the Emperor’s resentful subjects.
- Bach Dang Street: Near the Imperial Citadel this street features many ancient and impressive buildings now inhabited by the local population.
- The Troung Tien Bridge: This bridge, which crosses the Perfume River in the centre of Hue city, was designed by renown French structural engineer Gustave Eiffel. At the time it was constructed, in 1899, the bridge was a fine example of cutting edge engineering spanning a distance of 403 metres.
