Although a small and quick visit (about 30 mins would do it), this really one of the best to visit. Not ruined by wars or hurricanes, it's splendor is there for all to see. The decorated ceramic walls are absolutely amazing and awe inspiring. It's...More

Set on the bank of the Perfume river a bit west of the citadel, this old pagoda is a must while visiting Hue. Home of the famous car that brought the monk to Saigon in 1963, this is truly a historic place.

Free to visit, take a boat ride down the perfume river to this site. Will only take you 1 1/2 hours round trip.

We showed up right here by motorboat lowered by the perfume river, our initial stop of the morning at approximately 8:30 am and this has been already hectic. Our guide was once again excellent and told people about it. It was fascinating to visit

Came on a coach tour, only had a brief look before moving on, so not really much to say about it. It is what it is

The Thien Mu Pagoda is a historical temple in the city. The seven story pagoda is regarded as an unofficial symbol of the city. Beautiful
