Famously being one of Vietnam’s seven UNESCO World Heritage Sites, the Imperial City of Hue has long been a must-see attraction for tourists visiting a hidden charm of Vietnam. In this private Hue city tour, the first stop we will visit is Hue Imperial Citadel. The Imperial City of Hue was actually a walled fortress and palace belonged to the ancient city of Hue which was a capital city of the Nguyen Dynasty for 140 years. It was said to be protected by the two sand dunes as "dragon on the left, tiger on the right".
After that we have time for lunch in local restaurant.
We continue our itinerary by taking a boat trip on the Perfume River with a stopover at Thien Mu Pagoda (Heavenly Lady pagoda), is an icon of Vietnam and as potent a symbol of Hue as the Citadel. The name of the pagoda came from a legend that an old woman once appeared on the hill and said that a Lord would come and build a Buddhist pagoda for the country’s prosperity. Thien Mu Pagoda was ranked one of the twenty most beautiful landscapes in Hue with the poem Thien Mu chung thanh, composed by the emperor Thieu Tri, inscribed on the stone stele set near the Pagoda gate.
Then go sightseeing at Minh Mang Tomb, a complex of 40 constructions: palaces, temples, pavilions, etc. The Minh Mang Royal Tomb is the final resting place of one of the Nguyen Dynasty’s staunchest Confucians, whose reign represents the apex of Nguyen power over the country. Minh Mang tomb offers a balance of nature and structures that is unmatched among tombs in Hue. This balance between landscapes and buildings reveals a lot about personality of Minh Mang emperor and characteristics during his reign.
