Situated on the banks of the Perfume River in Central Vietnam, Hue once served as the imperial capital of the Nguyen dynasty, which ruled from 1802 to 1945. Today, the vestiges of this former glorious period are reflected in the city’s architecture, culture and cuisine, making it a popular tourist destination.
Hue City, an ancient capital of Viet Nam, welcomes a number of visitors every day who are interested in a mix of the new and the old. Along with many cool activities to enjoy in the daytime, the nightlight in Hue City may be really joyful and charming.
There are seven royal tombs in Hue, six to the southeast of the Hue Citadel on the other side of the Perfume River and a single tomb on the same side. Of these seven tombs, three are significantly more popular compared to the rest, due to their relative good condition and better accessibility.
With a rich history, Hue claims several distinctive dishes, from small and delicate creations originally created to please the appetites of Nguyen feudal lords, emperors to lusty, fiery street-level soups and sausages with complex, explosive and satisfying flavors.
