8h00 depart to see the Imperial Citadel- an impressive complex, first built in 17th century based on the ancient practice of geomancy.
You will also have time to visit the completely different Khai Dinh royal burial place, flanked with a grandiose dragon staircase leading to its European-like castle built in the 1930’s. Khai Dinh was the father of Emperor Bao Dai, and his tomb was completed in 1931. During the early 60s, Hue was the site of violent Buddhist demonstrations against the repressive Diem regime.
After lunch take a boat ride on the Perfume River and visit some of the more interesting sites of Hue – Thien Mu pagoda and the Minh Mang tomb’s.
