How Long to Stay in Hue
We recommend staying for two full days in Hue, which means three nights in a hotel or perhaps two nights in a hotel and a third night on an overnight train to your next destination.
Imperial Citadel in Hue
The reason you need two full days in Hue is that there is a lot there worth seeing. The main attraction is the massive Imperial Citadel on the northern bank of the Perfume River. This vast former royal palace was the centre of power for the last Imperial Dynasty of Vietnam from 1804 to 1945.
A lot of what was originally in this 10 square kilometre walled city was destroyed in 1968 during the Battle of Hue. However, enough of the original buildings survived to form a good starting point for a painstaking decades long reconstruction project which has recreated enough of the original palace to hold the interest of visitors for several hours.
Bach Dang Street in Hue
A trip to the Imperial Citadel should also be combined with a walk around some of the surrounding streets, such as Bach Dang Street, which feature centuries old buildings and temples incongruously situated side by side with shops, homes and restaurants.
Imperial Tombs in Hue
For your second full day in Hue we recommend that you procure the services of taxi or motorbike taxi to take you the notable sites on the edges of the city. Hue has some fascinating and highly elaborated Imperial Tombs, amongst the best of which is the Tomb of Emperor Khai Dinh, located 7 km to the south of the city centre.
Pagoda of the Celestial Lady in Hue
The other major attraction in Hue is the Pagoda of the Celestial Lady, known locally as Thien Mu. This seven storey pagoda is picturesquely located on the banks of the Perfume River. The pagoda is linked to a number of significant legends and important events in Vietnamese history and it is worth spending some time exploring the grounds of the pagoda to read the information signs and see the museum style displays.
