Impressions of Hue

(Tour code: VK503)

3 days/ 2 nights

At the beginning of the 19th century the city of Hue was the capital of Vietnam. During the Vietnam-US war some of the most severe struggle occurred in the region of the Central Highlands when a number of constructions were bombed and ruined during this war. Fortunately, the riches and the historic significance of the town remained unaltered despite all this. Hue and its surrounding have still got lots of pagodas, temples which are more than 300 years old. Apart from being a center of cultural development in Vietnam, Hue has also served as the breeding ground for Royal Music.

Hué is certain to add a touch of culture to your trip. During this trip, you'll enjoy a cruise on the romantic Perfume River and take guided visits to the Thien Mu pagoda and the Imperial Citadel, modelled on the Forbidden City in Beijing. There is also an opportunity to explore the local area on pushbike, passing through traditional villages and extensive paddy fields.
