Hue or Hoi An? Is 1 night enough in Hue?

we are a family of 5-2 adults and 3 children. We are staying 3 nights in HoiAn and 2 nights in Hue, but there seems to be more to do in Hoi An so should we spend 1 more night in Hoi An and just 1 night in Hue?

thanks for any feedback

"should we spend 1 more night in Hoi An and just 1 night in Hue?"

No - you really do need to spend 2 full days in Hue to see everything.

No, 1 night won't be enough in Hue as you won't be able to see both the citadel and the tombs in that time frame.

I fear your kids will be bored stiff touring the Citadel and the tombs! Unless you really like history, Hue can be a little hard after Hoi An.

I don't think it matters either way.

Is it possible for you to decide when in Hue?

Can you arrange to have flexibility?

Stay one night in Hue, and if you like it, stay another night.

Hue was great - was nonstop for a day trip from Da Nang but boy did we walk our paws off and saw heaps. I think 1 night 2 days would be quite ok, but def can see most of it in a day if you are ambitious and have a private car at your beck/call.

You should spend 1 day only in Hue. Hoi An is more interesting so you should spend more days there: Visit the old town, Tra que village...

Yes possible, you can arrive Hue first, visit Hue and spend 1 night here, next day travel to Hoian. In case you arrive Hoian first you travel from Hoian to Hue have a half day visit then overnight, next day have a half day visit then back Hoian or Danang airport for depart

I think 3 nights is enough time to enjoy Hoi An. And there is probably no point going to Hue for only one night. So I recommend that you keep to your 3+2 nights plan. I did 2+1 nights as a solo traveller in May and that was very rushed. Getting a big group together always takes that much more time.
