Middle of Vietnam - Major cities: Hue, Da Nang, Hoi An

Hue City
Area: 70.99 sq. km
Population: 1,090,000 (2011)
Administrative Division : Wards:PhuNhuan, An Cuu, Truong An, PhuocVinh, VinhNinh, Phu Hoi, Xuan Phu, Vy Da, TayLoc, ThuanLoc, ThuanThanh, ThuanHoa, Kim Long, Phu Hoa, Phu Cat, Phu Hiep, Phu Hau, Phu Binh, Phu Thuan and Phuong Duc, Huong So, An Hoa, An Dong, An Tay, Huong Long, ThuyXuan, ThuyBieu.
- Ethnic groups: Viet (Kinh)

hueHue was the seat of power of the Nguyen Emperors who ruled Vietnam from 1802 to 1945, and their impressive Citadel remains partially intact today despite the ravages of several wars. Legacies of the city's dynastic past are everywhere and keep visitors busy with visits to elaborate tombs and pagodas, mausoleums and assembly halls. Threaded along the beautiful Perfume River which flows through the city, the unique and extraordinary monuments serve as a guide to the lives of Vietnam's last emperors.

The spectacular Citadel is built on the same principles and design as Beijing's Forbidden Palace. The outer walls which can be between 10 to 21 meters thick enclose a vast compound of palaces, temples, meeting halls and pavilions, many of which are now sadly victims of war and the passage of time. The remaining buildings do however give ample clues to the grandeur and elegance that the walls once hid from commoners. The city is a traditional seat of culture and learning. Graduates of Hue's education system include Vietnam's famous general, Vo Nguyen Giap, and even Ho Chi Minh himself spent some time at Hue's National School. At around 5 pm each weekday afternoon one of Vietnam's most charming spectacles plays out as girls dressed in traditional, flowing "aodai" dresses leave the university and cycle along the leafy road bordering the Perfume River.

On the northern bank of Perfume River, one can discover relics consisting of palaces, which were constructed as arc defensive rampartsup to11km length. This valuable construction includes more than 100 architectural works, which reflected the life of Emperors and mandarins under reign of the Nguyen Kings. Situated in the middle of hills on the southern bank of Perfume River are very beautiful tombs of the Nguyen Kings. Among these tombs are the four most famous ones with the name and the arrangements of the tomb reflecting each Emperor's points of view, personality and tastes. There is the majestic Gia Long Tomb, the imposing Minh Mang Tomb, the poetic Tu Duc Tomb and the magnificent Khai Dinh Tomb.

Hue is also an important center of Buddhism. In Hue and its surrounding still exist dozens of pagodas constructed more 300 years ago, and hundreds of temples and pagodas built in the early century.  Hue is also the place where the royal court music originated, and a place with many traditional famous royal banquet dishes and sophisticated handicrafts.

This truly unique city of Vietnam still retains its form of a city under such a royal realm and due to the monarchic constructions, Hue has become an impressive and invaluable museum. In December 1993 UNESCO has recognized Hue as a World Cultural Heritage Site.

Hue remains a place of rich cultural heritage. No such place still exists with so many historical vestiges as in this ancient Capital City

 

HIGHLIGHTS OF HUE

The Imperial Citadel
hueThe construction of the Imperial Citadel, designed for exclusive use by the emperor, his family, and his retinue, started in 1804. The city is protected by a series of four enormous outer walls that are 7-21 meters thick. Access to the walled city is via four arched gates, the best known of which is the Ngo Mon Gate, built in 1834. The Imperial City contains a series of palaces, ornate halls, libraries, residences, and colleges. Much of the City, including the Forbidden Palace, was destroyed during a vicious battle between opposing forces during the Tet Offensive of 1968. One can spend an entire afternoon wandering around the grounds of the Imperial City, viewing the ancient architecture of the Nguyen emperors and scars of recent battles.

Much of the Imperial City was built during the reign of Emperor Minh Mang. His tomb is located at the juncture of two tributaries of the Perfume River surrounded by rolling hills. It is said that it took 13 years to find an appropriate burial site for the Emperor and upon arrival it's not hard to see why this location was chosen. Set within an exquisitely landscaped garden it is a tranquil and idyllic place. The site is considered one of the best examples of Nguyen Dynasty architecture and artwork.

Thien Mu Pagoda
Thien Mu Pagoda is one of the oldest religious structures in Hue and is also one of the most impressive. It was constructed during the 17th century to worship the legend of a celestial lady. In 1844, Emperor Thieu Tri added the Phuoc Duyen stupa. This seven-storey stupa is 21 meters high, with each level dedicated to one of the various human forms taken by Buddha. In the 1930s and 1940s the Thien Mu Pagoda became an important meeting place for Buddhists. It became well-known worldwide when, in 1963, Thich QuangDuc, a 66 year old resident monk, died after setting himself on fire to protest anti-Buddhist policies of the government of South Vietnam. It is best to visit the pagoda by sampan as it sits on the banks of the Perfume River.

Lang Co Beach
One of Vietnam’s most accessible, pristine, yet least visited beaches. Set against a backdrop of the verdant foothills of the Annamite Cordillera, Lang Co beach lies on the eastern side of a spit between a semi-bracken lagoon and the South China Sea. It is generally overlooked by travelers in too much haste making their way north or south between Danang and Hue, and they are the poorer for their haste.

A leisurely drive up over the Hai Van Pass from Danang, Lang Co is pure beach relaxation without much of the “in your face” commercialism (Yet!) which afflicts all the better known beach destinations in Vietnam. The sands along the 8-9km stretch of beach are clean and the water is clear unless there are storms about out in the South East Sea.

There is a resort with the usual facilities on Lang Co beach and quite a few private guesthouses and hotels have opened their doors along the beachfront to welcome overseas travelers.

  • Address: Thuythanh Commune, Huongthuy Ward

  • Recommendation: April to July is the best time for beach relaxation on this end of the central coast. However, august-September also heralds the beginning of the typhoon season, so some pounding surf and stormy weather can be experienced.

HIGHLIGHT OF HOI AN

Japanese Covered Bridge
The Japanese covered bridge was built over a small canal in 1593 to link the Japanese quarter to the Chinese quarter. Designed and built by the Japanese community, the wooden structure has remained intact. On one side of the bridge are carvings of two dogs and on the other two statues of monkeys. There are two possible reasons for this: firstly construction began during a year of the dog and ended during a year of the monkey and secondly both the dog and monkey were revered by the Japanese as many of their Emperors were born in either a dog or monkey year. On the northern side of the bridge there is a Japanese pagoda dedicated to protecting sailors.
