Renowned as the most royal city in Vietnam, Hue has sufficient charm to keep you staying as long as you can afford the time to visit.
The romantic and magnificent beauty of Hue is enhanced by the Perfume River, which flows through the centre of the city – words cannot describe it and compare it with others. The surrounding countryside is studded with elaborate ancient tombs, temples and gardens preserved from hundreds of years ago.
No feeling and experience would be more delightful than floating on the water in a traditional Dragon boat and listening to the ancient ceremonial songs of the city – a nice escape from busy city life.
Each year, the city celebrates a fantastic festival at the end of April to introduce the Vietnamese traditional food, flowers, trees, kite flying and costumes.
For the visitor, the only one possible problem is Hue’s notoriously unpredictable weather, frequent rain. The best time to travel to Hue is from February to April when the weather is cool and the amount of rain is at its least.
Besides romantic landscapes and interesting history, like other destinations in Vietnam, Hue is also famous for its special cuisine, which has indeed enriched the culinary art of Vietnam. Dishes here are often very spicy and served with relatively small quantity with refined presentation.
They say that everyone will one way or another fall in love with this city. Come to Hue and experience it for yourself.
