Hue is located on the edge of the Perfume river, along which is a nice riverside walk. On the downside, there are quite a few beggars here
I arrived on an early morning flight from Hanoi. Once at the Airport, I took the Airporter bus to my Hotel which was located in a side lane.
After settling in, I went walking, then hired a cyclo to take me past the main sights. My driver could speak English, was informative and stopped at many sights for me to take photos.
There are plenty of restaurants to choose from, have found them all ok.
CITY TOUR OF HUE
I did a full day city tour, which was excellent.
We went to the Citadel first, then a garden house, a incense and conical hat making village and Tu Duc Tomb, which was very impressive. Lunch was at a city Hotel. After lunch to Khai dinh tomb, Minh Mang Tomb and the Perfume Pagoda, THEN back to Hue by dragon boat.
A nice, relaxing way to return to Hue, also, I got to see how the locals lived on and beside the River.
I thought Hue was quite nice, easy to walk around. It has some lovely, French colonial buidings.
My favorite sites were the Citadel and the Tombs.
- Pros:Easy to get around, Excellent Tombs & Citadel
- Cons:Beggars and uscrupulous people
- In a nutshell:A nice city for a few days.
In the "west Hall" of the Hue Citadel, if you wish to dress like an Emperor, and have your photo taken, then you can do... more travel advice
