Welcome to Hue

Royal residences and pagodas, tombs and sanctuaries, culture and cuisine, history and misfortune – there's no deficiency of idyllic pairings to portray Hue. Known as one the greatest Unesco World Heritage sites in Vietnam, this profoundly vivid capital of the Nguyen emperors still resounds with the glories of royal Vietnam, despite the fact that a large number of its finest structures were collapsed during the American War. The city owns a delightful position on the bank of the Perfume River – pleasant on a sunny morning, atmospheric even in less flattering climate. The restoration work to recover Hue royal splendor is at the heart of the city’s focus, yet today it remains a mix of new and old: modern houses sit cheek by jowl along the narrow streets and sleek modern hotels tower over crumbling century-old Citadel walls.

Visitors to Hue are astonished at the most pristine and beautiful beaches in Vietnam, including Thuan An and Lang Co beach, twinkling in sunshine with limpidly blue ocean and white silky sand. In addition, there are some mineral hot springs available like Thanh Tan in Phong An, Phong Dien; where you can totally be relaxed after a long walking day. More interestingly, the old city is also the place where dining is not to satisfy human basic needs, but a form of art. Hue’s cuisine is elegant, light and noble and distinct from other regions. Spices, especially chili, play an important role in Hue’s cooking and cuisine decorating art.
