Hue Holidays

Imperial history and cultural treasures

Vietnam is brimming with beach retreats and cultural hubs, but if you want to delve into the country's history, the former imperial capital Hue is the ideal place to do it.

Take a walk alongside or enjoy a boat ride on Hue's enigmatically named Perfume River and picture what this winding landmark has witnessed, from imperial rulers living within protective city walls to the tragedies of the Vietnam War. Dotted all around Hue are temples, tombs, palaces and pagodas, centuries of history are here waiting to be uncovered.
