Upon arrival at Hue, we will visit the Citadel, Hue’s most prime attraction, containing theImperial City, the Forbidden Purple City and the Emperor’s Private Residence. Following the morning activities, we will have a short break for lunch. In the afternoon, we will take a boat trip on the Perfume River with a stopover at Thien Mu Pagoda, considered by many as the unofficial symbol of Hue. It is an active Buddhist monastery with its origins dating back to 1601. One of its most poignant displays is a car belonging to a former monk, who in 1963, drove to Sai Gon and set himself alight to protest against the South Vietnamese regime and its cruel treatment of Buddhist monks and followers. From here, we will go sightseeing at Minh Mang Tomb. Minh Mang Tomb is beautifully set in a tranquil area of gardens and lakes. We will finish the afternoon with a visit to the vibrant Dong Ba Riverside Market, then return to Hoi An/Da Nang or your hotel in Hue.
