24 hours in Huế

Imperial city, Hue, Vietnam

We spent in Huế just 24 hours arriving in the afternoon with a fight from Hanoi with Vietjet Air. Because of the late arrival in the city, we decided to get on a boat tour and reach Thien Mu Pagoda.

Is possible to go there by boat and come back by taxi or vice versa, it’s your choice. I have to say that the boat trip is nothing special, one way is enough.
Saturday night the city centre is closed to traffic.

In the morning we went to visit the Imperial City (UNESCO World Heritage site) in anticlockwise direction following Google Maps. Half day maybe is enough. We had other plans after lunch so we didn’t stay longer.

Where to eat

Le Jardine de la Carambole delicious food and very nice people. Highly recommended for a romantic and elegant dinner. We spent 1.230.000 VND  (£42)

Geko Pub Lovely atmosfere, delicious food and very kind people.


How to move around

As in the rest of Vietnam, cabs are very cheap, so it’s the best way to move around. Cab from Le Jardine de la Carambole to our hotel was 40.000 VND (£1.40)

In the morning from our hotel to the Imperial City we paid 35.000 VND (£1.20)
