Newest Review: ... can go up into. Once through the gate, you walk across a stone bridge with a river underneath, and some fish towards the Thai Hoa palace. You can't take photos inside the palace, but there are very few artefacts in here now. However the internal décor is very attractive as this was once an important ceremonial room. There is some signage informing you of the sort of thing that went on in ... more

Hue lies in the centre of Vietnam on the Perfume River and is my favourite Vietnamese city. Most modern hotels are south of the river but the interesting parts are north of it.
