"Hue in the rain" Hue by magor65
Hue Travel Guide: 623 reviews and 1,726 photos
Although I had heard about the capricious weather in Hue I was quite disappointed to find it raining all the time during our short stay there. Having seen the highlights of the city we decided to go south 'towards the sun', without giving ourselves a chance to immerse in the atmosphere of the place and forming any kind of emotional bond with it. After easy-going Laos, Hue made a contrast with its stream of motorcyclists and crowded streets. But still I will remember Hue as an interesting city with magnificent architecture.
Despite the infamous weather Hue is frequently visited by foreign tourists. Its old imperial complex is inscribed in the UNESCO Cultural Heritage list. The city used to be the capital of Vietnam during the reign of the Nguyen dynasty (1802- 1945). Although it was severely destroyed in 1968 during Vietnamese American war, many architectural gems are preserved. So don't give it a miss if you come to Vietnam.
