This was a really interesting site to visit. It wasn't as busy as some other sights so you felt like you could soak up the atmosphere more. There's quite a bit to see and it is definitely worth visiting.

Hue was destroyed after the bombing by US during the Vietnam war. UNESCO is re-building the place back to its glory. The Citadel is testimony of Hue's importance as the capital of Nguyen empire and their might.
