Half day highlights of Hue

Your tour kicks off with a visit to the UNESCO-Heritage Imperial Citadel. Wander the extensive grounds where the Nguyen Dynasty ruled between 1802 and 1945. After exploring, take a cyclo through the Old City to tranquil Tinh Tam Lake, once the relaxation grounds of the Emperors, and now a popular place for Hue residents to unwind. The pretty lake is full of lotus flowers and there’s plenty of coffee shops if you need a quick pick-me-up.

You’ll leave the city for the beautiful countryside by car, where you’ll arrive at Khai Dinh’s tomb, a remarkable complex with a blend of Vietnamese and European design. Finish off your tour with a stop at the lively Dong Ba market.
