Hue Imperial Relics & Gardens Walking Tour
- Full Day
Start the full day Hue tour at 08:30 with a transfer to the Imperial Citadel. Recognized by UNESCO in 1993, the citadel houses the Forbidden Purple City, home to the Imperial Court from 1802 to 1945. The Citadel reflects the pomp and ceremony of the dynastic rulers as well as the scars of many years of turmoil, both ancient and modern. Although badly damaged in the latter stages of the war, it retains a sense of grace and majesty even today.

Visit the tomb of the Emperor Minh Mang, the second Emperor of the Nguyen Dynasty who was well known for his opposition to any French involvement in Vietnam. This tomb is famous for its imposing architecture and gorgeous forest setting. Transfer by car to Thuy Bieu countryside. A delicious homemade lunch will be served in a traditional garden house inside the gazebo of a beautiful pomelo garden. Once the appetite is filled, start a lovely guided walk through the village and its countryside. Its architecture reflects the traditional style of Hue, with small cottages hidden in luxuriant gardens bordered by fences carved out of ornamental trees. The pomelos of Thuy Bieu are especially famous for having been served to the Nguyen Lords in bygone years. The locals are very friendly and the guide helps to interact with locals on the way. Take a break in a beautiful garden house for a fresh drink before embarking on a late afternoon boat ride along the Perfume River back to Hue. On the way, stop at the Thien Mu Pagoda, otherwise known as the Pagoda of the Celestial Lady, which is one of the most well-known symbols of the city of Hue (L)
