    Vietnam Maps

    Hue may not be considered as a tourist destination, but the place offers many attractions to travellers. This is a historically significant city: it used to be the Imperial City before it became the nation's capital during the Nguyen dynasty. It is also where several royal tombs can be found. While most of the structures in Hue were damaged during the war with the French and the Americans, there are still a lot of things worth seeing in the area.

    The city of Hue combines both ancient features and modern touches, and this dichotomy is outlined by the Perfume River. The west bank of the river is where the ruins of the Citadel and the Imperial City, as well as remarkable ancient architecture, can be found (complex of Hue monuments). The east bank is where more contemporary facilities such as hotels and restaurants are situated. The Trang Tien Bridge is what connects the citadel area to the new town.

    One of the most notable things about Hue is the food. The local cuisine is distinct, and is best tried streetside. Two must-try dishes are bun bo Hue and banh khoi.
