About
With a long history as one of Vietnam’s most important cultural and religious centers, Hue today is a popular stop for tourists because of the impressive tombs of the Nguyen Emperors, the Thien Mu Pagoda, and the Imperial City. The Imperial City, reminiscent of pre-communist Vietnam, is one reason why Hue became a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1993. The remaining French colonial villas and garden houses, the quiet streets, the riverbanks, the outlying tombs and pagodas that escaped damage - all give Hue a unique atmosphere of tranquility. During this half day tour, visitors will be brought up and close with its turbulent history and what makes Hue such a delight to travel around.

What to expect
  • Choose the departure time that suits your schedule, then begin with pickup at your city center hotel at 8am or 1:30pm. Transfer to the Perfume River, where you’ll take a short boat trip to the Thien Mu Pagoda, an important symbol of the city that was founded in 1601. Take in the octagonal tower at the heart of the pagoda, whose seven stories each represents a Buddha that’s appeared in human form. After your time at Thien Mu Pagoda, continue to Dong Ba Market, in the heart of Old Hue. This bustling, local market kicks off each morning at 3am, and it’s a feast for the senses: you’ll see fresh fish in shining piles, vegetables from area farms, handicrafts, and imported trinkets. Exploring Dong Ba Market with a guide is the perfect way to learn more about what’s for sale, including the diverse produce and herbs that are the basis of Vietnam’s flavorful cuisine. Throughout the tour, your guide will share stories from Hue’s turbulent history, from ancient times to the Communist era, offering local insight into a fascinating city. This 4-hour tour concludes with drop-off at your hotel in Hue.
