Imperial Grandeur in Ancient Hue
Ancient tombs that crumble in the hills. Time-honored artistry and culinary traditions. And jungled mountains that roll right into the sea. Hue and its surroundings have so many stories to tell and things to do that it should be a highlight in any trip through Vietnam, yet so many people pass it by. However, now that Hue has made Discovery Channel’s list of 5-must visit places in Southeast Asia, it’s just a matter of time before it begins to receive the international acclaim it so rightfully deserves.
Formerly the seat of power as well as the political, cultural, and religious center of Vietnam from 1802-1945, Hue’s imperial capital was badly damaged after the fall of the Americans during the 2nd Indochinese War. However, with a little bit of imagination and time spent, the city will unfold and blossom before your eyes like a lotus pond in spring, revealing a destination filled to the brim with historical wonders and authentic experiences.
As Anthony Bourdain once said, “All the senses are engaged here.” So come and see what he meant – whether it’s part of a much longer Vietnam tour or an in-depth Hue city exploration, we’ve got you covered!
