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.
