Day 1


On arrival in Hue, you will be met and transferred to your hotel. Hue is the former imperial capital of Vietnam and is home to the tombs and mausoleums of the last emperors of Vietnam, as well as the remnants of their once grand citadel. This afternoon is at leisure to explore the relatively quiet and leafy city centre.

Day 2


Start your exploration of Hue at the Imperial Citadel where the Nguyen Dynasty ruled between 1802 and 1945. After exploring the ruins of this wonderful monument take a cyclo through the ‘Old City’ to Tinh Tam Lake where the Emperors used to come to relax beside the lotus-studded lake.

Drive onto Thien Mu Pagoda, constructed in 1601, it is seen as a symbol of Hue city and has a tradition as a Buddhist centre of learning. From here continue on to the mausoleum of Minh Mang, located in a tranquil setting of gardens and ponds, and then Khai Dinh’s tomb – an unusual fusion of traditional Vietnamese design with a European touch.
