Hue holidays

Set on the banks of the Perfume River, Hue was capital of Vietnam between 1802 and 1945 under the Nguyen Emperors, and later French colonial rule. Since the early nineteenth century it has been regarded as Vietnam’s centre of learning which, with its tradition of Buddhism, gives the city a sophisticated air. Hue witnessed some of the most aggressive action of the American War, including the 1968 Tet offensive, but in spite of this many monuments to its Imperial past remain, and UNESCO declared the city a World Heritage Site in 1993.
