About Travel to Hue

Hue is one of the most interesting destinations in Central Vietnam. Hue has no beach but it does have several fantastic historical sites to visit, as well as great facilities for tourists, and a picturesque location on the Perfume River. The area where most visitors choose to stay is close to the Southern end of the Troung Tien Bridge, which was designed by Gustave Eiffel at the end of the 19th Century to connect the more modern part of the city to the historic centre on the northern bank of the Perfume River.

Imperial Citadel

Hue main tourist attraction is its Imperial Citadel. The Imperial Citadel was constructed over a number of years from 1804 as the new capital of Vietnam’s last imperial family, the Nguyen dynasty.

The Imperial Citadel covers an area of approximately 10 square kilometres and contains many different sections divided into courtyards, each with a unique set of buildings. There’s a lot to explore.

Sadly, most of the original buildings were destroyed in 1968 in fighting between the combined forces of the Viet Cong and North Vietnamese Army and the armed forces of the United States of America. Fighting actually took place inside this historically important site, including the use of bombs dropped from the air and heavy ground based artillery. The Vietnamese have been working constantly to restore the citadel ever since the end of the war in Vietnam.

Thien Mu

Hue’s second most famous attraction is Thien Mu, which is better known internationally as the Pagoda of the Celestial Lady. The pagoda was built in 1601. The legend is that it marks the spot when an earlier member of the Nguyen family took advice from an old lady about the positioning of the new city of Hue.

The pagoda has 7 storeys, a formal garden at the rear, and an excellent location outside the city centre on the banks of the Perfume River. Thien Mu is associated with a number of Vietnam’s most important folk legends and a number of important events in the modern history of Vietnam. For this reason the pagoda is an important place for Vietnamese people and much more than simply an attractive old building.

Tombs of the Emperors

To the South of the Imperial City there are a number of tombs built for the Emperors of the Nguyen dynasty. As time went on from the beginning of the dynasty, which lasted from 1801 to 1945, these tombs became more and more elaborate. Vietnam’s royal family increasingly lost power over that time to the French colonialists, and the creation of these tombs became a very expensive way for politically impotent emperors to attempt to demonstrate their continued importance.

The Emperor Khai Dinh, who died in 1931, built perhaps the most magnificent of these temples and in doing so managed to impoverish his subjects through increased taxation to pay for it. The concrete used to construct the Tomb of Khai Dinh has largely turned black and according to local belief this is a reflection of how hated the Emperor was by his own people.
