Huong Perfume River in Hue


Generally, Hue is a small peaceful city in central Vietnam. Thus, this city is well known for its diversified cuisine and all splendor remained from Nguyen Dynasty. Nowadays, tourists come to Hue city not only enjoy marvelous sightseeing built by Nguyen Royal family but they also have an opportunity to know all about their former royal life back to the old days. Therefore, in order to provide you with Hue Day Tour from Da Nang, Premium Travel Vietnam (PTV) organize Hue Day Trip from Da Nang.




The story dated back to Tran Dynasty (1225 – 1400), in order to have a wedding gift to marry Princess Huyen Tran, Chiem King (Champa King) Che Man presented the regional land of “Ô” and “Lý” to Dai Viet (Vietnam today). Later, Tran Kings divided Vietnam into many provinces and Hue belonged to “Thuan Hoa” province. So, “Thuan Hoa” means favourable conditions but “Hoa” was the name of the first wife of Nguyen Emperor Minh Mang: Mrs Ho Thi Hoa; then later they changed the name from “Thuan Hoa” into “Thuan Hue“.

Nowadays, the people just call “Hue” for short. Basically, “Hue” came from the words “Thuan Hoa” and it was the capital city of Vietnam (1802 – 1945) under Nguyen Dynasty.
