Your Hue Explorer will begin with a trip to the vibrant market of Dong Ba. It’s a feast for the senses here, with so much going on. Take in the sights of locals going about their everyday life whilst your host takes you through the items on sale including delicious foods. Use your guide to help you talk to the local traders and learn a bit more about their lives.

Once you have explored, we will take a walk to the Citadel. This impressive walled structure is home to the Forbidden Purple city, as well as many pagodas. Then it’s on to the Tinh Tam Lake, which is filled with lotus flowers. On the way, take in the sights of beautiful gardens and traditional architecture.

Once you have explored the lakeside attractions it’s time for lunch in a pagoda. As you dine on delicious traditional food you will have the opportunity to ask the monks about their religion and learn a little bit about Buddhism.

Following the midday meal we take a bus journey through the area and out past rice fields and little towns until we arrive in an incense-making village. Here you will have the chance to learn about the process and should time allow also pay a visit to some Emperor’s tombs.

We head on into the countryside and stop off at the Nguyen Dynasty tomb of Minh Mang. Famous for resisting French occupation, Minh Mang’s tomb is a very interesting place to explore, with interesting architecture and a stunning forest backdrop adding to the experience. Then, we head on to Khai Dinh’s tomb where we take in the equally interesting sights here, including its unusual European style architecture. As the day comes to an end we stop at the Thien Mu Pagoda with its complex of temples looking over the Perfume River. We spend a bit of time here admiring the pagoda’s seven levels before proceeding to the Tiger Arena where Emperors used to enjoy fights between elephants and tigers. Then we finish off the day with a pleasant boat trip on the Perfume River before we drop you back off in the city centre.
