Hue is a city chock-full of stories. The Kings of the Nguyen Dynasty built their feudal capital along Hue’s fertile riverbanks and atop its forested hills, but their imperial legacy is just one of many reasons to visit. Hue’s refined cuisine is the stuff of legend, and its leafy streets are lined with mossy pagodas, art deco mansions, and eye-popping markets. Through the whole scene flows the Perfume River, setting a languid pace the rest of the city is happy to follow.
Tu Duc Tomb
Get acquainted with Vietnam’s last royal dynastic family by exploring what survives of their 143-year reign. The Complex of Hue Monuments, featuring the Hue Citadel is a hugely significant territory. Roam its palaces, pavilions and theatres, and you may still catch echoes of life in the Imperial Court. Journey along the river to the tombs of Tu Duc, Minh M?ng and Khai ??nh. Enveloped in greenery and guarded by fierce mandolins, these tombs evoke a striking harmony between nature and architecture.
You’re never far from a world-class meal in Hue. Nose around the flapping-fresh produce at ?ong Ba Market for a teaser, then whet your appetite with Hue’s much-loved snacks, such as banh khoai and banh beo. Roving vendors can roast you a banh mì or whip together a swoon-worthy bowl of bun th?t nuong in seconds. There’s even a ‘vegetarian street’ in Hue, evidence of the city’s devout Buddhist roots. Foodies can’t miss the chance to try bun bo hue in the city of its origin.
