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. 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.
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 parts of the Imperial Citadel which survived the best 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.
As well as the Imperial Citadel, Hue has lots of other world class tourist attractions. Of particular note are the Pagoda of the Celestial Lady and the various Imperial tombs built outisde the city centre, the best of which is the Tomb of Khai Dinh. The Pagoda of the Celestial Lady is a seven storey pagoda built on the banks of the Perfume River to the west of the centre of Hue City. The pagoda was built in 1601 to mark the founding of the city and is associated with a number of Vietnam’s most important legends as well as several significent events in Vietnam’s more modern history.
The Tomb of Khai Dinh is a large structure built in levels up a steep section of hillside between 1920 and 1935. Emperor Khai Dinh spent a colossal amout of money on building this tomb. The Thien Dinh Palace, which hold the actual crypt, on the top tier is opulently decorated with materials and statues imported from abroad, including a life style bronze statue of the Emperor made in Paris. The Tomb of Khai is located 7 km by road to the south east of Hue city centre.
