Guide to Luxury Holidays in Hue

Located just a few miles from the sea, Hue is the capital of Thua Thien Hue province in Central Vietnam. Once the capital of the Nguyen Dynasty, this fascinating city was named a World Heritage Site by UNESCO due to its outstanding historic value. Wander through ancient monuments, tombs of past emperors, and antique pagodas that continue to draw international attention. Must see attractions include the region's four citadels; Hoang Thanh (Imperial City) for royal palaces and shrines, Tu Cam Thanh (Forbidden Purple City) for royal residences, Dai Noi (Inner city) and Tran Binh Dai for their architecture. You should also visit the Thien Mu Pagoda, constructed in the 17th century, with an octagonal tower that measures 21 metres in height, this site is considered an important symbol of Hue's heritage. If you love the beach, you're in luck, as Hue is home to some of the most stunning beaches in all of Vietnam. Thuan An and Lang Co beaches are the closest to Hue, and among the most popular - with their powdery stretches and aquamarine waters, a day by the shore in this part of the world will not disappoint. Then finish your trip by embarking on a boat trip down the Perfume River. Trips often include a royal court music performance - known as a local specialty!

February to April are the ideal months to visit Hue, due to the spring season which suits all manner of activities. With an average temperature of 22°C, you can enjoy sightseeing in comfortable temperatures. June and July bring the summer season, with an average temperature of 30°C. Escape to some of the top beaches in the area, and retreat to local restaurants and bars, for colourful cocktails during the hottest part of the day.
British nationals won't need a visa to visit Vietnam when staying for a maximum of 15 days. As a precaution, you may want to travel with a photocopy of your passport along with the original. Find more advice at GOV.UK with information on passports, visas and travel.
Gourmet cuisine in Hue is an art form, and alongside celebrated Vietnamese favourites, like phở soup, menus include options from French, American, Italian, and Japanese cuisine. Enjoy fine-dining options in spectacular settings, such as on a white sand beach beside the sea, or on a rooftop bar and restaurant, with panoramic views across the landscape. Popular regional dishes include fresh seafood, with a local specialty of com hen - a sweet-smelling rice with spices and baby clams.
