Hue has always showcased the unique. This old imperial capital a fusion of old-world design and regal tastes. It was destroyed during the Tet Offensive yet is now recovered.
This travel moment connects the jigsaw pieces of Hue’s history. Like the tombs of Tu Duc and Khai Dinh, elegance personified amidst the sprawling colors along the Perfume River.
Then a discussion with young monks at the Thien Mu Pagoda, draped longingly above the river’s eastern bank. Plus relics from the Imperial Citadel, the last vestiges of the Forbidden Purple City, salvaged from the ashes with an air of defiance.
What you will experience are fragments from time, memoirs to a city that loves to hold its visitors captive.
