Tour Description

Start with a boat cruise along the Perfume River and witness the 21 meter Thien Mu Pagoda. Next on this Vietnam tour is a visit to the ruins of the Imperial Citadel, the tomb of Khai Dinh and the Mausoleum of Tu Duc. Enjoy renowned Central Vietnamese cuisine, a mixture of the best tastes from the north and the south on this trip.

Day 1: Hue Arrival – Arrival in Hue, the former imperial capital of Vietnam, and transfer to hotel.

Hue is the former imperial capital of Vietnam and its mesmerizing tombs and mausoleums of the last emperors of Vietnam reveal fascinating insights into the lives of the imperial families and their subjects. The ancient Citadel reflects the pomp and ceremony of the dynastic rulers as well as the scars of many years of turmoil, both ancient and modern (the Royal Citadel was badly damaged in the latter stages of the war) but retains a sense of grace and majesty even today.

Day 2: Hue –  Start your exploration of Hue at the Imperial Citadel where the Nguyen Dynasty ruled between 1802 and 1945.  After exploring the ruins of this wonderful monument take a cyclo through the ‘Old City’ to Tinh Tam Lake where the Emperors used to come to relax, full of lotus flowers in summer there are many local style coffee shops around the lake where university students come to study. Drive onto Thien Mu Pagoda, constructed in 1601, the 21-meter tall tower is the centrepiece of the pagoda. From here depart for the Mausoleum of Tu Duc, built decades before its occupant’s death the tomb was used as a palace retreat before the emperors resting place. Finish up the day at Khai Dinh’s Tomb which is traditional Vietnamese in design with a European touch making it unique from the other tombs in Hue. (B)
