What you can expect

Overview:

This is one history lesson you will not want to miss! Take a journey through Hue’s eventful past as you explore its ancient imperial architecture including; the Citadel, the Imperial City, the Forbidden Purple City, a boat trip along the Perfume River, the Emperor's Private Residence and Thien Mu Pagoda and a royal tomb.

Itinerary:

* Visitors are required to wear shirts with sleeves and pants under knees when visiting the Hue Citadel

Head to Hue, along the North coast of Da Nang to the top of Hai Van Pass where bunkers remaining from the war can be explored. Upon arrival in Hue, we will visit the Citadel, Hue’s prime attraction, which contains the Imperial City, the Forbidden Purple City and the Emperor's Private Residence. Hue citadel was built from 1804 to 1833 under the Nguyen’s Dynasty (the last feudalist kingdom in Vietnam). The grounds of the Imperial City are protected by fortified ramparts 2 kilometers and ringed by a moat. Inside the citadel, there are many different construction works such as: Imperial City Gates, Purple Forbidden City, Temples and places of worshipping, pavilions, gardens, etc.

Following the morning activities, we will have a short break for lunch. In the afternoon, we will take a boat trip on the Perfume River with a stopover at Thien Mu Pagoda, which is an active Buddhist monastery with its origins dating back to 1601. One of its most poignant displays is a car belonging to a former monk, who in 1963, drove to Sai Gon and set himself alight to protest against the South Vietnamese regime and its cruel treatment of Buddhist monks and followers.

From here, we will go to visit the serene Khai Dinh Royal Tomb, designed to blend in with its natural surroundings and built on principles of feng-shui.
