If you are arriving in Hue city, spend Hue city half day tour to learn about Vietnam History especially about the Nguyen’s Dynasty. This short trip brings you to the “must-see” sites in Hue: The Forbidden Citadel, home to the Nguyen Emperors of Vietnam from the 18th century until 1945 and the Thien Mu Pagoda, one of the best known Buddhist sites in the city.
Renowned as the most royal city in Vietnam, Hue city has enough charm to keep you staying as long as you can afford the time to visit. Not until 1945 was Hue the national capital, the political, cultural and religious center of Vietnam under the control of Nguyen Dynasty. Most well-known for its historic values; Hue had been recognized as one of the World Heritage Sites by UNESCO.
We start with a visit the Imperial Citadel. The Imperial City is a walled palace within the citadel of the city of Hue, the former imperial capital of Vietnam. After access the Ngo Mon Gate, we will take in the Purple Forbidden City. The Forbidden City was reserved for the Nguyen royal family from the 18th century until the mid-1900s. Unfortunately, American bombing in 1968 in response to a communist takeover of Hue flattened most of the city. As we can see, only a few survived buildings such as the Thai Hoa Temple, Can Thanh Temple, The Mieu, and Hieu Lam Cac… But all the remains make a well worth visit.
Leave the Imperial Citadel we drive along the bank of Perfume River to Thien Mu Pagoda. Thien Mu Pagoda is a historic temple in the city of Hue in Vietnam. Its pagoda has seven stories and is the tallest religious building in Vietnam. The temple is often the subject of folk rhymes and ca dao about Hue, such is its iconic status and association with the city. Here we visit the 7-storey octagonal tower, a symbol of Hue city – the former imperial capital.Afterwards, transfer back to your hotel. End trip!
