Hue in the Middle of Vietnam was once Vietnam's Imperial City and later the country's capital under the Nguyen dynasty (1802-1945) and now it is well-kown for it’s vast of relics and considered as one of the centers of culture in Vietnam.
Although most of Vietnam's walled Citadel and Imperial City Hue was devastated under the wars with the 2 big countries France and America, there's still much to see. With a good English-speaking guide who can bring the place back to life and offer some good background, you are still easy to image what happened here.
With many dragon boats, houseboats, and long-tail vessels dredging for sand, you can captivate the daily life on Perfume River. A tour to visit many of the attractions, including the tombs of Nguyen dynasty emperors by boat is a wonderful choice. The enjoyable town features low-slung, colorful colonial-style buildings, and strings of lights at outdoor cafes at night are like the flame for the many tourist.
Hue’s cuisine is very famous in the world. You'll find fine-dining establishments that specialize in tempering the cuisine to foreign tastes and look. The Trang Tien Bridge, located in the center of Hue and connects the citadel area with the new town across the Perfume River, and always lit up at night is itself a major attraction
Beside discovering much valuable relics and atractions in Hue, if you have time and love to know more, you may want to plan a full-day excursion to the nearby demilitarized zone (DMZ), the beginning of the Ho Chi Minh Trail, and the underground tunnels at Vinh Moc.
