Full description
Your tour driver will take you to a selection of historic and natural highlights around Hue. Some of the highlights you may visit include: Thanh Toan Bridge: a rare arched wooden bridge that is comparable with the famous Japanese bridge in Hoi An. The bridge is situated right next to the local market, where you can experience a little of local life. Tu Duc Tomb: the tomb was built between 1864 and 1867 while the Emperor was still alive. It’s a sprawling complex set around a lake where the Emperor spent much of the summer. Minh Mang Tomb: this is the tomb of the most beloved emperor and is also widely considered to be the most majestic of all of the Royal Tombs. It is renowned for its architecture that harmoniously blends with its natural surroundings. Khai Dinh Tomb: this royal tomb displays a perfect fusion of Western and Eastern architecture. Emperor Khai Dinh was as controversial as his tomb is luxurious. Hue Citadel: the home of Vietnam’s last royal family, the Nguyen Dynasty. The walled palace is the manifestation of the Nguyen dynasty’s power. Its massive halls, royal courtyards, garden design and architecture will leave you in awe. Thien Mu Pagoda (Heaven Fairy Lady Pagoda): surrounded by serene natural scenery, this pagoda is considered the most beautiful pagoda in the city.

If you want to see the 3 tombs and the city citadel buy the ticket that includes the 4 sites ,will cost 360 000 vdong when you get to Tomb of Khai Dinh King. It will save you buying a ticket at each. We booked the tour because driver was supposed to speak English but ours had very limited English.

This “sightseeing” was actually a transport service. The driver, although being exceptionally friendly, spoke hardly a word of English. Luckily we had prepared a list of 6 sights we wanted to see. He drove us there, although 2 of them were closed for renovation!
