This ancient city has extensive relics of Vietnam's fascinating heritage. Splendid tombs, ornate pagodas and the remains of a once magnificent Citadel.

Next stop is Hoi An, a delightful fishing town, its narrow streets filled with colourful latterns, tailors, art galleries, traditional houses and much more. Come and discover all in one trip - Hue to Hoi An.

Day 1 Hue sightseeing
Hue is well-known for its beauty and isolation. Let’s the royal past come to life among the ruins of the Imperial Citadel. In the morning, we explore the Citadel, a fortress surrounded by a moat that has a 10 km (6 mile) perimeter!

The site enclosed the land of eight villages and cover 6 km2 – sufficient area to house the Emperor and all his family, courtiers, bodyguards and servants.

After lunch, we enjoy a boat trip along the Perfume River. En route we call in the Pagoda of Thien Mu, tomb of Ming Mang and time permitting we explore the tomb of Tu Duc, before a short transfer back to our hotel. (Lunch and dinner are included).
