Tour Itinerary

Day 1

Arrival – Hue

Greeted  at airport by our guide and driven to hotel. Spend this afternoon to visit Hue with the Imperial Citadel and the Dong Ba  Market.


On arrival at  Hue Airport  or Hue Train Station , you are met by our guide and transferred to your hotel. The riverside town of Hue was flourished from 1802 to 1945 when it was the national capital under the Nguyen Dynasty. This ancient capital represents the outstanding demonstration of the vanished Vietnamese feudal empire, including royal citadel, monuments, pagodas, and mausoleums littered in surrounding hills. We start our tour of Hue with  the massive Hue Citadel, which contains the Imperial City and the Purple Forbidden City. This royal residence was all but partly destroyed during the 1968 Tet Offensive; however, it is still fascinating to walk around and see many pavilions, bridges, libraries, and great halls. They have been restored to explain the legends of the Nguyen Dynasty emperors, who have built the fortress and lived within its moated walls for nearly 150 years. Upon leaving this site, we take a short drive to the vibrant Dong Ba Market and enjoy a walk around this flagship shopping destination in Hue. There are a wide variety of local goods and handicrafts, and also many fantastic eating spots, making an ideal place for visitors to try their  hand at bargaining and sample some local delicacies rarely found in different locations of Vietnam.
