About Travel to Hue

Hue is a medium sized city in Central Vietnam, with around 650,000 permanent residents, which is highly significant in Vietnamese history.

History of Hue

From 1802 to 1945 Hue was the capital city of the last Imperial Dynasty of Vietnam. The Imperial Citadel, from where the last Emperors of Vietnam ruled the country, is a UNESCO World Heritage Site which is open daily to visitors from 08:00 to 17:30.

Inperial Citadel in Hue

The Imperial Citadel is a massive walled complex covering an area of 10 square kilometres. There are many similarities between the Imperial Citadel in Hue and the Forbidden Palace in Beijing. However, most of the Imperial Citadel in Hue was destroyed during the Battle of Hue in 1968, and is still undergoing a painstaking restoration project.

The most notable parts of the Imperial Citadel which survived the battle are its magnificent grand entrance gates, of which there are six in the inner wall and a further four which are entrances to the Forbidden Purple City, which was an area within the the citadel restricted to the Emperor, his younger children, and women of the royal court.
