The imperial seat of the last emperors of Vietnam, Hue is home to some of the country’s most remarkable ruins. The Imperial City, surrounded by a moat and fortress wall, is filled with ornate palaces and shrines, among them the wonderfully named Forbidden Purple City where the Nguyen lords once lived. On the banks of the Perfume River rise the seven stories of the Thien Mu Pagoda, and just a stone’s throw away are imposing imperial tombs. But our private Hue tours will show you a local side of this historical city as well: wander the aisles of Dong Ba Market and absorb all the colors, sounds and smells, then relax at tranquil Tinh Tam Lake with a Vietnamese coffee. With its scenic location on the Perfume River, its dynastic history, lotus-filled ponds and peaceful pagodas, legendary Hue is also one of Vietnam’s most romantic cities. Use the expertise of our local Travel Specialists to customize your own Hue itinerary.

Our honeymoon experience traveling through beautiful Vietnam was unforgettable – and I couldn’t recommend Backyard Travel highly enough. All logistics were planned perfectly so all we had to do was show up and everything was taken care of. The tour guides were personable, knowledgeable and flexible to our preferences. I would recommend a trip like this for anyone looking for a plug-and-play trip to Asia.

Our one week tour if Vietnam was another fantastic vacation by Backyard travel. The selected guides were well matched for our family with young children. Our children loved the mix of activities and the choice of hotels. So many unforgettable experiences in such a short time!

Don?t lie about the mausoleum and then have your tour guide try to talk us out of it. Wasted one whole house of my tour. Waste of money.

What’s Special about Hue?

For roughly 150 years from the 19th to 20th century, Hue was the capital of Vietnam and the seat of the powerful Nguyen dynasty. The city’s remarkable preservation of stunning relics, ancient pagodas and peaceful mausoleums allows for incredible cultural explorations today. Come experience the legendary status of the region and get swept up in the romance of the Perfume River on your customized Hue vacation.


Perceived as Vietnam’s most royal city, it’s no surprise that the people of Hue are proud of their influential ancestors. Today, they continue the royal tradition of naming their children with the values they want upheld.


Annual temperatures do not fluctuate much below 20 degrees C in Hue. While the dry season from March to August is a great time to visit, be warned that temperatures can soar into the high 30s. Rainy season lasts from August to January.


Be treated like a king on a private Hue tour—it is a royal city after all! Explore the city by cyclo or sip coffee in the shade by Tinh Tam Lake. In sumptuous restaurants, dine on dishes based on royal recipes.


The cuisine, the architecture, the clothing, even the locals’ attitudes—everything in Hue is tinged by its royal heritage. Be prepared to be wowed not only by the city’s history but also the dignity of Hue’s people.


Vietnamese is the most commonly spoken language among locals. Some residents speak French, while English and Chinese are usually spoken in tourist centers and attractions.


While Hue is renowned as the seat of the Nguyen dynasty, the city has other claims to fame: it was the setting of the Battle of Hue, one of the biggest battles of the Vietnam War. Nearby historical sites attest to the region’s wartime role.
