Welcome to Hue
Located near the north central coast of vietnam, by the banks of the perfume river, the city of hue is the cultural, religious and historical heart of the country. It became the imperial capital of the nguyen dynasty, when vietnam unified after 300 years of chinese influence in 1802. The imperial citadel was erected as a ‘forbidden city’ which inner enclosure was exclusive to the royal family. Hue remained the capital until 1945 when emperor bao dai abdicated.
Because of its strategic location near the north and south vietnam border, the town suffered particularly during the war’s tet offensive in 1968. Considerable efforts have been made to restore its many historical landmarks.
The richness of the inherited royal lifestyle and traditions, including fashion, gastronomy and the arts can be felt in everyday life, making hue a unique place to experience. The national dress for women, ao dai, takes its origin in town. The architecture and craftsmanship culture is celebrated, both in its historical and modern forms. Additional to the famous imperial citadel, the city’s highlights include the eclectic royal tombs and atmospheric pagodas (please refer to our private tours offer for more information).
With such a heritage to honour, education is paramount; the city has one of the oldest and most prestigious high school in the country, along with esteemed medical and arts universities and institutions.
The local features wouldn’t be complete without the renowned local food. With popular dishes ranging from luxurious to rustic, hue’s cuisine is often considered the best in the nation (hue’s specialties are proudly served at our restaurants).
Last but not least, the people of hue are what truly make the trip special. They are welcoming, proud of their heritage yet looking at the future. The tranquil and sophisticated atmosphere gives time a special quality, making it a perfect place to relax.
