We will begin the trip by meeting you up at the Chan May port and then transfer you to Hue city – the ancient capital of Vietnam.

Reaching Hue city, our car and the guide will transfer you to Hue Citadel, a huge complex built by Nguyen Dynasty. This massive complex has 3 walled cities: Citadel, Imperial city and Forbidden city. Nguyen Dynasty built this as royal homes and residences for royal family between 1802 until 1945. The Hue citadel also witnessed big battles in Tet Offensive in 1968 and many original buildings have gone but some of them still remain.

On arrival, we stroll around and pay a visit to Imperial city Gate, Thai Hoa Palace, Royal Theatre, Truong Sinh Residence ect. You will have an insight into royal life and activities.

Leaving Hue Citadel for Thien Mu Pagoda (also called Heavenly Lady Pagoda). This is beautiful spot built right on small hill overlooking the Perfume river. The pagoda was built in 1601 and Nguyen Emperors went here to write poetry. Today, lots of Hue people and tourist come to visit and practice their religion.

Upon reaching here, we wander off around this nice spot and you have an opportunity to take such a beautiful picture. You then go inside and see the main sanctuary where Buddist monks chanting. Followed by a short visit to the back where an old car is displayed to remember the story of the monk who burnt himself to protest discrimination of religious freedom.

Finally, we will have car drive to sightseeing the royal tomb of Tu Duc Emperor. At arriving this place, we will walk around and visit the resting place of the Nguyen Emperor. Thus, the tomb was built from 1864 to 1867 and became the summer resort, second home and final resting place for Emperor Tu Duc. It also played a role of entertainment compound as well away from busy job in the Citadel. The tomb has 2 separate parts and has strong Feng Shui influences with all little hills, temples, worshipping places ect. This is worth visiting place for every traveler coming to Hue city.
