The first stop of the day is the Citadel, Hue’s prime attraction. The Citadel contains the Imperial City, the Forbidden Purple City and the Emperor's Private Residence.
Following the morning activities, there is a short break for lunch.
The afternoon continues with a boat trip on the Perfume River. Enjoy a stop 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. The tour also visits the serene Khai Dinh Royal Tomb, designed to blend in with its natural surroundings and built on principles of feng-shui.
