Start your Hue city tour with a visit the Citadel. It’s within these 2m-thick and 10km-long walls that you’ll find several of the city’s best sights, from the many ornate pagodas to the Forbidden Purple City. We’ll continue our ride to Thanh Toan Bridge, an ornate covered bridge hard to find without local knowledge. From there, we’ll explore a nearby local market and visit an agricultural museum to understand how locals trade and maintain their traditional daily lives.
Further immerse yourself in the best of Hue countryside with a ride through stunning surroundings, past rice paddies, to a small village that specializes in making incense sticks. We’ll drop by a local pagoda/monastery for a traditional vegetarian lunch and a chance to chat with the monks/nuns to learn more about Buddhism and gain an insight into their daily lives.
After lunch, our Hue tour continues with the visit to one of the most impressive emperor’s tombs to take in its astonishing architectural beauty. From there, we’ll head to Tiger Arena, where duels between elephants and tigers were arranged for the entertainment of the Emperors right up until 1904.
After a day taking in the many sights of Hue, we’ll enjoy a relaxing boat trip along Perfume River to Thien Mu Pagoda, the most sacred temple in the area. Take in the magic of Hue’s most sacred temple before our tour ends with a short motorbike ride back to the centre of the city.
