Top 5 Things to do in Hue, VIETNAM

Hue is a small town in Vietnam full of rich culture and history. We spent 5 days exploring former royal palaces in the imperial citadel as well as tombs of some of the great Vietnamese Nguyen emperors.

For our first stop we take you to to the very famous Imperial City of Hue. Hue was the former capital of Vietnam two times throughout history and so Hue houses one of the most impressive ancient cities in Vietnam.

Address: Thành phố Huế, Thua Thien Hue, Vietnam
Hours: Monday – Sunday 8am–5:30pm

Next up we head to a local Vietnamese market nearby. The largest of its kind in Hue being Dong Ba Market. It’s 16000 square meters (not km as mentioned in the video sorry!) Worth a visit if you’re looking for some cheap goods or a wide variety of Vietnamese cuisine and street food.

Address: 2 Trần Hưng Đạo, Phú Hoà, Thành phố Huế, Thừa Thiên
Hours: Monday – Sunday 6am–6pm

One thing you don’t want to miss while you’re in Hue is the Perfume River. Its waterways run throughout the entire city and many of the most popular tourist destinations lie along Perfume River’s banks. We decided to travel via boat.

We went through tour operators

On the boat ride down Perfume River we stopped off at our next destination – Thien Mu Pagoda. You can also reach Thien Mu Pagoda by car but it is a little bit far. Going by boat to Thien Mu Pagoda is definitely the best option.

Address: Hương Hòa, Thành phố Huế, Hương Hòa Thành phố Huế Thừa Thiên Huế 532761, Vietnam
Hours: Monday – Sunday 8am–6pm

Finally you can’t leave Hue without viewing the impressive tombs of the famous Vietnam emperors. We chose a mix of traditional design and architecture by visiting Minh Mạng’s tomb:

Address: QL49, Hương Thọ, Hương Trà, Thừa Thiên Huế, Vietnam

And also what had to have been our favourite destination of Hue which was the Royal Tomb of Khai Dinh which architecturally was ahead of its time.

Address: Khải Định, Thủy Bằng, Hương Thủy, Thừa Thiên Huế 530000, Vietnam

Both tombs open from
Hours: Monday – Sunday 7am–5:30pm

  • Wait, did the artist paint that entire ceiling with his feet or did he paint the ceiling a foot at a time? 😂

  • Yo…… Such a well-preserved palace. So interesting that you have to cover up to go into certain areas.We love markets… but yeah they can be overwhelming.

  • Awesome video guys as always! Very informative, I love to see culture and history in person. It sounds like you learned plenty about Hue. Crazy to think this place has been through so much. I was just watching a film last night about the Vietnam war and it talked a lot about Hue.
