Following pickup from your centrally located hotel, join your guide for a tour of Hue highlights, including the UNESCO-listed Imperial City. Start with a short boat cruise on the Perfume River, which takes you to the legendary Thien Mu Pagoda (Heavenly Lady Pagoda), one of the oldest architectural structures for religious worship in Hue. The landmark is situated on the northern banks of the river and its intricate features have developed since its early construction in 1601.

The tombs of the emperors Tu Duc and Khai Dinh are located on the southern banks. Tu Duc's tomb is one of the most beautiful works of royal architecture of the Nguyen dynasty. The tomb lies in a boundless pine forest with nearly 50 constructions built on terraces of various levels. The construction of Khai Dinh’s tomb combines both Vietnamese and Western architectural concepts with 127 steps leading to the hill site.

After a look around, continue to Dong Ba Market in Old Hue, located near the point where the Dong Ba Canal joins the Perfume River close to the eastern corner of the Citadel. The market maintains its ancient character and makes an unforgettable impression for visitors seeking Vietnamese food or culture. Nearby, a commercial district stretches along the Dong Ba Canal that produces local handicrafts such as non la (conical hats) and incense sticks. Your tour includes a set lunch.

In the late afternoon, transfer back to your hotel after a day exploring the royal kingdom of Hue.

Our guide, Ken, I think in...

Our guide, Ken, I think in Vietnamese Quang was wonderful. He shared Vietnamese history with us, was able and willing to answer our questions as his English is so good. Because there were only two of us on the tour it was an ideal learning experience for us. Ken guided us through several historic sites which were quite varied, allowing us to set our own pace when we were interested in spending longer in some areas. Our driver magically appeared when we were ready to move on and the lunch organized as part of the tour in a garden restaurant was superb. We felt as if we could have been in Monet's garden. Was such an interesting and relaxing day and a wonderful way to end our stay in Hue. Two travellers who are in their late seventies.
