Lang Co
Lang Co beach is a very charming beach in the1 outskirts of Da Nang with shallow waters and picturesque mountains

Hue Imperial City (The Citadel)
19th century Citadel which surrounds the original Imperial City, the purple forbidden city, palaces and shrines. This really is the 'must see' location in Hue. More recently, in 1968 during the Tet Offensive, the 'Siege of Hue' resulted in enormous damage to both the city and Citadel - you will see rebuilding works to this day.

60 minutes • Admission Ticket Included

Tomb of Khai Dinh
There are seven Imperial tombs to the Nguyen kings along the Perfumed River and surrounding countryside. In Vietnam's last dynasty our kings ruled for 143 years until 1945. So we continue on our intriguing journey to visit the beautiful tomb of Khai Dinh. I feel these best reflect the dynasty's difference in mindset, lifestyle & art.

45 minutes • Admission Ticket Included

Thien Mu Pagoda
With difficulty we must leave the Citadel and its intriguing history to our next visit, the very special Thien Mu (Fairy Lady) pagoda which overlooks the Perfume River on its northern bank - original construction of the pagoda started in 1601. Its Từ Nhân tower, constructed in 1844, is seven stories high (21m) and is the tallest religious building in Vietnam.

A Must Do Tour in Hue

We learned so much about Vietnam history from this tour. We loved all the places that we visited, the citadel of Hue imperial city, Thien Mu Pagoda and Tomb of Khai Dinh. Dat, our tour guide, speaks very good English, is friendly and very knowledgeable. Dat also took us to a good restaurant where we can try food from Hue like Bun Bo Hue and assorted steamed rice cakes. Highly recommend this tour to all.
Hue - The Imperial City

Very interesting and colourful day biding the Imperial City, Tombs and Incense Stalls of Hue. Our guide Ton was very knowledgeable and friendly. The area around Hue are very green and pace seems much slower. The Perfume River Boat took took us the Pagoda and Temple. This tour shows off stunning architecture, traditional Vietnamese buildings including Royal Tomb and amazing sculptures. Well worth doing if you have a spare day in Hue.
Excellent, can highly recommend

Could not have asked for a better guide for our trip to Hue. It was a pleasure to meet Lam who quickly and intuitively adapted the tour to our group. We had a day beyond our expectations. Highly recommend, helped make such great memories from our trip to Vietnam. Will use again and recommend to friends and family.
