About Travel to Hue
Hue is one of the most popular destinations in Vietnam for foreign visitors. Hue is a wonderful relaxed city with a scenic location on the banks of the Perfume River. Hue also has excellent hotels, restaurants and Western style bars. Hue’s main attraction, however, is its massive Imperial Citadel which occupies most of the Northern part of the city. Hue was the capital city of Vietnam from 1804 and the 1945 and last Imperial Dynasty of Vietnam, the Nguyen Dynasty, built a grand palace there to rule from.
The Imperial Citadel, in design and scale, bears similarities to the Forbidden City in Beijing. Before being largely destroyed in the Vietnam War, the citadel had around 200 buildings spread over a 10 square kilometre site surrounded by a 2 metre thick defensive wall and a moat. Significant restoration work has been undertaken at the Imperial Citadel since Reunification and visitors now have a lot to see although there are still decades more work to be done until the palace is restored to how it might have looked in the 19th Century.
Other attractions in Hue
Hue has three other world class attractions which make the city one of South East Asia’s top tourist destinations:
- The Troung Tien Bridge: Designed by Gustave Eiffel, this late 19th Century steel bridge across the Perfume River is right in the centre of the city. There are pedestrian walkways on either side of the 403 metre long bridge.
- Thien Mu: Better known as the Pagoda of the Celestial Lady, Thien Mu is 7 storey pagoda built in 1601 in celebration of the elderly woman who, according to legend, advised the Nguyen Lord of the location where to construct the city of Hue.
- The Tomb of Emperor Khai Dinh: The Tomb of Emperor Khai Dinh is a giant and elaborately decoration mausoleum built ascending in steps up the side of the hill. The tomb at the top is opulent, decorated with materials imported from France paid for through substantial tax rises on the Emperor’s impoverished subjects.
