Many people miss the opportunity to see Hue City, travelling straight to Hoi An from Hanoi instead. Its a shame because Hue city is so beautiful, has so much history to explore & the food is probably some of the best in all Vietnam. Hue City is located on the bank of the romantic Perfume River and with a new promenade on display, there is plenty to see and do.

So, join a small group Hue City Tour including a Dragon Boat Ride, Imperial Citadel and Royal Tombs. Make sure to tick Hue City off your Vietnam bucket list.
