Thumbs up Sea Port tour From Chan May visit Hue city

Hue: Imperial Citadel & Perfume River Cruise Tour:

our one of the pivotal sites in Vietnamese history: the old imperial capital of Hue. Visit a 17th century Buddhist pagoda and cruise along the Perfume River aboard a dragon boat.

Imperial Citadel - Built from 1804-1835 by Gia Long, the first Nguyen Emperor, the Citadel is modelled on Beijing's Forbidden City. Your tour enters the Citadel by the magnificent Noon Gate. See the serene lotus pond, the Royal Library and the complex's central pavilion, the Palace of Supreme Harmony, with its dynastic urns and memorial thrones dedicated to the various Nguyen Emperors.

Thien Mu Pagoda - Founded in 1601 by Nguyen Hoang, the 'Heavenly Lady' pagoda is Vietnam's most revered and visited Buddhist shrine. During the 1960s the pagoda was a hot bed of anti-government protest. Today, it is a serene sanctuary where monks recite sutras in the main temple.

Perfume River Cruise - Board your dragon boat in front of the 'Heavenly Lady' pagoda for a cruise along the Perfume River. During the imperial era, the river waters were flavoured with attars and essences: hence the name Perfume River.

Emperor Minh Mang's Tomb - The Emperor Minh Mang is considered the most brilliant of the Nguyen Dynasty rulers. His tomb is located at Cam Ke on the west bank of the river. The unique funeral architecture is highlighted by green and yellow tiles.

Truong Tien Bridge - The French built the bridge as a gift to Emperor Dong Khanh.

Explore Dong Ba Market, the largest and oldest market in Hue. Browse the stalls for Hue-style candy, sugar, cakes and conical palm hats.

A local hotel serves a lunch buffet featuring dishes from Vietnam's formal 'imperial cuisine' and regional specialities.

Board your air-conditioned motorcoach and drive to the imperial city of Hue, passing small thatched villages, communal temples, and rice paddies still worked by water buffaloes.
