Things to See in Hue

The most famous sight in Hue is the Imperial Citadel. Though much of the citadel was destroyed during the Tet Offensive in the Vietnam War, there are still some fantastic sights to see and you’ll need to dedicate a good chunk of your stay in Hue to the attraction. Explore the Ngo Mon Gate, the main southern entrance to the city, the Thai Hoa Palace and the Forbidden Purple City. Alternatively visit the Hue Jungle Crevice, a sight that played a grisly role during the Vietnam War. Other sights include the Tombs of the Emperors, the Thien Mu Pagoda and the Thanh Toan Bridge.
