Full description
After being collected from Hoi An express office at 7:00 AM, embark to spend a day exploring Vietnam's former imperial capital, Hue, with its fascinating historical sights. Your tour will begin with stops to admire the area's natural beauty at Hai Van Pass, where you can view in particular the Ocean Cloud Pass and Lang Co beach, the most beautiful beach in Vietnam. Upon arrival in Hue, you will start your visit at the Citadel, Hue’s prime attraction. Here you will find the Imperial City, the Forbidden Purple City, and the Emperor's Private Residence. After that, the tour continues to Thien Mu Pagoda. Considered by many as the unofficial symbol of Hue, Thien Mu is an active Buddhist monastery with origins dating back to 1601. One of its most poignant displays is a car belonging to a former monk, who in 1963, drove to Saigon and set himself alight to protest against the South Vietnamese regime and its cruel treatment of Buddhist monks and followers. From here, the tour visits the serene Khai Dinh Royal Tomb, designed to blend in with its natural surroundings and built on principles of feng-shui. Your tour will conclude with a drop off to the Hoi An express office at 7:00 PM.

The 3 items in Hué that we visited were very worthwhile! for that matter a must. The bus was old and not very comfortable. The guide did his best but his English was hard to follow. The commercial stop at a perfume factory must be skipped.

The guide BAO was very energetic and engaged and tried his utmost to make it a great trip. There were more stops than we expected. Very good experience. Only con was that we wish the sites were a bit more clean.
