Amazing travel experiences in Hue

05-Nov-2019

Tourists will feel the peacefulness and friendliness of people, the freshness of nature, the majestic of famous landmarks and the astonishing culture and cuisine in Hue. 

Enjoy the scenery by cyclo

The first time tourists visit Thua Thien-Hue, it is impossible to miss the rare experience of cycling around and enjoying the scenery of the whole city from Truong Tien Bridge. Tourists can walk around the city center to learn about the daily life of Hue people here. Hue city is not too big and noisy, so it is easy for you to find your way and explore here.

Hue city is small, but if you only  visit Hue in one day, maybe you will not be able to go to all the ideal places. Using a cyclo, you can not only immerse yourself in peaceful space but also slowly explore each of the streets with an ancient beauty through the dusty layer of the past downtown. The trip will take you to visit cultural and historical sites such as Dai Noi, Khai Dinh Tomb, Minh Mang Tomb, Tu Duc Tomb, Thien Mu Pagoda, Dong Ba Market.

On the way, you can choose to stop by any attractive tourist spot and reward yourself with a few unique flavored snacks which are only be sold here, such as bun bo Hue (Hue-style beef rice noodles), spring rolls, bloating fern-shaped cake, etc.  You can visit some antique houses selling souvenirs such as bracelets, oil paintings, clothes in the style of Hue people.

Visit Dong Ba market at the end of autumn

Dong Ba is unlike any other market in our country. Here, Hue people trade all kinds of items from imported to self-produced to meet the supply and demand of the market. One late autumn day, visitors to Dong Ba will be surprised by the clean, neat market like a self-governed supermarket but it will give you a feeling of proximity.

Dong Ba is a market of retail purchasers in Hue but quite busy and crowded. The items traded in the Dong Ba market are diverse, such as seafood, handicrafts, clothing, brocade, silk, fine jewelry, etc. Do not worry about the price because this place is not too hard on visitors.

Coming to Dong Ba, in addition to hand-choosing and shopping for souvenirs for their loved ones, tourists also enjoy many famous specialties in the market at affordable prices.

It would be a regret if visitors come to Hue without ever trying to choose an ao dai for themselves. Since ancient times, Hue people have always been famous in literature because of the image of a girl wearing pink long dresses, holding a conical hat, standing by the Perfume River.

Enjoy specialties

Hue city not only is famous for historical sites, people or harmonious natural but also attracts visitors by the famous specialties across the country. Hue specialties are extremely diverse and rich, eye-catching not only in appearance but also fascinating in the flavor of their own.
