Hue Full day tour (8:30 AM – 8:00 PM)

Located on the banks of the Song Huong- Perfume River; Hue, the capital of Thua Thien Hue province in Central Vietnam, is 120km north of Hoi An, and only a few miles from the sea. Up until 1945 Hue was the national capital, political, cultural and religious center of Vietnam under the control of Nguyen Dynasty. Most well-known for its historic values; Hue has been recognized as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO.

The ancient city of Hue (pronounced ‘whey’) in central Vietnam was the capital of Vietnam during the Nguyen Dynasty, 1802 to 1945, when the last Emperor abdicated to Saigon and Hue became part of communist North Vietnam. One of Hue’s main tourist attractions is the spectacular riverside Hue Citadel or Royal Palace of the Imperial City, built according to the practices of ‘feng shui’. The Citadel was the administrative centre of the Emperor and within the Citadel is Purple Forbidden city where only the Emperor and his concubines were allowed.

Another legacy of the dynasty is a number of historical mausoleums, tombs of the Emperors, and a lasting reminder of the cultural significance of Hue. Such is Hue’s historical significance that it is recognised today as a World Cultural Heritage Site by UNESCO.

Although Hue is not strictly a coastal city, beach lovers will not be disappointed as there are several good beaches like Thuan An, less than 15 minutes away – you can even cycle there! In short, Hue is a perfect location to explore the cultural heart and soul of the Vietnamese people while still having easy access to the beach.

Situated 120 kilometers to the north from Hoian, Hue is Vietnam’s old capital. Your trip to Hue will start at 8:30 a.m. Please prepare yourself for a long journey with us.

Before getting to Hue, you will pass by Hai Van Pass and Lang Co beach. Hai Van Pass promises to give you breathtaking scenery with lashing green hills on one side while the blue sea with clear sky on the other side. When both combined, it becomes one of the most spectacular nature view in Vietnam.

Lang Co beach which is 45 minutes away from Hai Van pass is a must-visit place. Although there are a few big resorts at the main street along the beach, but the whole area was surprisingly quiet – not many hotels, less vehicles, few local restaurants, and hardly see any tourist around.

Our next stop is Thien Mu pagoda, a historic temple, regarded as the unofficial symbol of the city. It’s easily noted that Buddhism plays an important role in religious life of Vietnamese people. Each pagoda has their old legends and stories which you will be told by our guide. After Thien Mu pagoda, the Khai Dinh tomb is our next stop. The Tomb of Emperor Khai Dinh lies on the slopes of Chau E mountain, about 10 km southwest of the center of Hue.

It’s time to head back Danang after a day trip in Hue. Danang will treat you well with its delicious foods and night vibe. Good food, good drink and great chats are surely what you will have in this tour.
