1 Day Hue Imperial City Tour

Experience Hue and its surroundings by bus, on foot and by boat.


Packed with temples, tombs, palaces, and pagodas, Hue is the gateway to the treasures of Vietnam's royal past and a must-stop on any itinerary. This full-day Hue city tour will take in the best of the city, from the art and architecture to the celebrated food and culture. Start your Hue city tour with a visit into the streets and wander over to the Citadel. It's within these two metre-thick and 10 kilometre-long walls that you'll find several of the city's best sites, from the many ornate pagodas to the Forbidden Purple City. Afterward, stop at a local tea house to taste some of the best Vietnamese flavoured green teas served with some authentic snacks such as sweetened lotus seeds and green bean cake.

Explore the best of it all before stopping for a vegetarian lunch in a local pagoda. Enjoy a traditional meal and have the chance to chat with the monks to learn more about Buddhism and gain an insight into their daily lives.

After lunch, our Hue tour continues with a short bus ride through the stunning surrounds, passing a village that specialises in making incense to learn about this ancient art. We will also stop at Vong Canh Hill, home to the remains of American bunkers to take photos before continuing on to one of the impressive emperor's tomb, Tu Duc Tomb.

We'll then pay a visit to Thien Mu Pagoda, a sprawling temple complex that is perched on a hill overlooking the Perfume River. After a day taking in the many sights, end it with a relaxing afternoon cruise along the Perfume River. Take in the magic of this meandering river before ending our Hue tour back in the centre of the city. Visit the colourful Dong Ba market, which will energise your senses with its sights, sounds, and smells. This is the ideal place to soak up everyday Vietnamese life, and your local guide will show you to some of the traditional foods, and introduce you to the local vendors.
