After being collected from your hotel you'll spend the day touring the Citadel, which contains the Imperial City and the Purple Forbidden City. The Imperial City, created in the 19th century and modeled on the Forbidden City in Beijing, has many palaces and temples inside. As Vietnam’s last feudal capital, the small and quiet city of Hue is widely known for magnificent architectures, pagodas and royal tombs laid in many small villages and surrounding hills. After touring the Citadel we will cruise along Perfume River and take in the landscape of the city. Back on dry land a trip to the bustling Dong Ba Market is not to be missed. This is a great place to purchase local handicrafts and souvenirs. You will also have opportunity to sample the famous flavors of Vietnamese street food helping you to experience the vibrant atmosphere of present day Hue before being returned to your hotel.
What to take: We suggest a small, lightweight daypack for cameras, drinking water, respectable clothes for temple visiting and comfortable walking shoes.
Note: You will be collected from your hotel. Pick-up time will be advised upon confirmation of booking.
