Places to visit in Hue

In Hue, it is mainly to visit the mausoleums and the Citadel, Thien Mu pagoda. The mausoleums are often far away from each other and from Hue city. If you do not let the baby go, you can rent a motorbike to go. But according to many tourists, it is best to take a taxi or rent a car (about 550-700K for a tour to visit the Tomb of Tu Duc, Minh Mang, Khai Dinh), it will be much more convenient and less tiring. I can ride a cyclo, very interesting.

In the evening you can buy a ticket to listen to ca tru on the Perfume River, much cheaper than if your whole group plans to rent a boat (40,000d/ticket).

If you want to go to the beach, you should go to Lang Co beach, about 80km from Hue, the sea there is more beautiful than Thuan An beach.

On the way to Bach Ma, Lang Co has two beautiful locations that are very popular with locals: Vung Voi and Canh Van beach. In Vung Voi there is a waterfall, the water in the pool is very clear and cool, and Canh Van beach is very shallow, very clean, the landscape is arc-shaped like Quy Nhon beach or Cat Co beach in Cat Ba and there you can see the port. Chan May- A newly built port of Hue. Eating seafood in Canh Van is much cheaper than in Lang Co, but the inconvenience of Canh Van is that there is no room.

In Hue, there is also the pleasure of sitting on a boat in the afternoon to watch the sunset at the confluence of the river at the Huong Giang hotel (but you have to take a rowing boat and the weather must be in the summer to find it poetic).

Having come to Hue, in addition to the large mausoleums such as Tu Duc, Khai Dinh, Minh Mang, Gia Long, etc., there is also Hon Chen temple, which is said to be very sacred.

There are two locations far from Hue, Bach Ma National Forest about more than 40 km, where French officials in the past vacationed, also halfway up the mountain, on cloudy days it is difficult to reach the top.

If you let the baby go, it will be difficult because these areas are very far from each other. On the other hand, the mausoleums are large, so it is necessary to prepare transportation for the baby.

As for traveling, if your health is not accompanied by a baby, you can rent a motorbike to go, and if your family is traveling with many people, you should take a taxi, which is both cheap and sunny. In the evening as mentioned above, if you go out, you should go by cyclo which is both cheap and you can freely admire the scenery of Hue.

Note: when taking a taxi or cyclo to an address that you already know, you must clearly state that you already know the address, no need to wait, otherwise they will ask for a commission from the hotel owner or ask you for money to wait. if you go back to the second hoe… .Of course it depends on the person….
