About Hue City
With the legendary attraction, phoenix-like Hue is now rising again, showing a dynamism that has partly been stimulated by Unesco"s attention to its monuments since 1983. Whatever changes, Hue Imperial City"s tradition is alive, seen in the sampans poled along by women, in the houseboats with their tiny rooftop shrines, in the superb Hue porcelain, and in the delicacies of imperial cuisine. Hue Imperial City with a gracious landscape of gardens, terraces, palaces, and pavilions deserves a heritage of the world.

How to get here: Hue is 108km from Danang, 654 km from Hanoi and 1071 km from Ho Chi Minh City.
Air - Phu Bai Airport is 14km south of the city centre. Vietnam Airlines has daily flight connections with Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City.
Hue Sightseeings
NGUYEN KINGS" TOMBS: There are eight royal tombs in Hue, being the final resting places of the Nguyen Kings. Construction of the tombs was very meticulous and started while the king was still alive. Most of the tombs face the southwest, direction of the Imperial city. Each toms consists of two complexes. The first is reserved for funeral services and the second one is exclusively for the toms. Generally, each tomb is enclosed in a surrounding rampart called "la thanh".

However, each tomb internal arrangement is different from one another; particular arrangements reflected each king"s points of view, personality and tastes.

THRONE PALACE: Throne palace, the building for great court"s meetings, faces the Noon gate and lies right on the axis piercing the centre of the Royal citadel. It was constructed in 1805 by Emperor Gia Long and used later in 1806 for his coronation.

In 1833 it was moved onto a foundation of 2.33m high as now by Emperor Minh Mang. It is 44m long, 30.5m across, 11.8m high and contains a 5-compartment, two-bay main building connected with a 7-compartment, two-bay front building.

The columns are lacquered red and decorated with golden dragon designs. On the roof ridge rest two dragon designs paying homage to a moon. Eaves and roof corners are ornamented with head-turning dragon designs. These and the moldings along the eaves are inlaid with multicoloured ceramic chips.

THIEN MU PAGODA: The pagoda is situated on Ha Khe, on the left bank of the Perfume river, in Huong Long village, 5 km from central of Hue city.

In 1710 Lord Nguyen Phuc Chu had a great bell cast (2.5 m high, weighed 3,285 kg) and a stele (2.58 m high) erected on the back of a marble tortoise in 1715. In the Nguyen Dynasty, Kings such as Gia Long, Minh Mang, Thieu Tri, Thanh Thai all had the pagoda restored.
