Full description
Spend a day exploring Vietnam's former imperial capital, Hue with its fascinating historical sights. After pick-up at 8:00AM from your hotel n Da Nang, you will head to Hue city. Firstly there are stops to admire the area's natural beauty at Hai Van Pass to see the view of Ocean Cloud Pass, before a quick peek at Lang Co beach, widely considered the most beautiful beach in Vietnam.

Upon arrival in Hue, you will start your visit at the Citadel, Hue’s prime attraction. Here you will find the Imperial City, the Forbidden Purple City and the Emperor's Private Residence. Following this, the tour continues to Thien Mu Pagoda. Considered by many as the unofficial symbol of Hue, Thien Mu is an active Buddhist monastery with origins dating back to 1601. One of its most poignant displays is a car belonging to a former monk, who in 1963, drove to Saigon and set himself alight to protest against the South Vietnamese regime and its cruel treatment of Buddhist monks and followers.

From here, the tour visits the serene Tu Duc Royal Tomb, designed to blend in with its natural surroundings and built on principles of feng-shui. At the conclusion of your tour, you will be returned to your Da Nang accommodation at 7:00PM.
