1.Hue overview

Hue with its charm of an ancient citadel has become a not-to-be-missed destination for all tourists visiting Viet Nam.

Located in the central of Viet Nam, Hue owes a long-lasting history with the settlement of the first King of Nguyen dynasty, Emperor Gia Long, starting a new phase of Vietnamese history. The locals are understandably proud of their hometown as Hue has an enduring tradition, stunning cuisine and mind-blowing beauty.
