    River Cruise

    River Cruise

    A journey to Hue will not be complete if without a cruise on the Huong River. With two options of different styles of cruise that cater to all tastes, this idea of things to do in Hue is very interesting for most tourists. You could not walk along the bank of Huong River without paying attention to the dragon boats that putter past. The morning route could be hopping onto a small yet long dragon boat to start your sightseeing. In this route, Thien Mu (Thiên Mụ) pagoda is the first stop (taking about 25 minutes to reach), Minh Mang (Minh Mạng) mausoleum is the next (taking about 1 hour to reach). Along the way meandering up the river, you can see many fantastic views. Just simply rest back in the seat and feel the cool breeze blowing along the boat’s side. Another romantic idea is to enjoy a relaxing tradition large dragon boat cruise whilst comfortably sipping champagne in the late afternoon. From the harbor, you head towards the pagoda before turning around to have a cruise down the river under both the Phu Xuan (Phú Xuân) and Truong Tien Bridges. Before coming back to your hotel, you can still immerse yourself in a traditional custom of locals: lighting and releasing the candlelit lantern.

    The Nguyen Dynasty’s seven imperial tombs in Hue are scattered along Huong River to the west of the city. Most of these tombs are a complex of temples, pavilions, stele houses, and mausoleums. Although the tomb of the Nguyen Dynasty’s first emperor, Gia Long, is 15km south of the city, it is the most captivating historical site due to its unique integration of nature and architecture. For something a little closer, the imperial tomb of Emperor Minh Mang rests amongst a lake of lotus flowers and is a reflection of noteworthy Chinese architectural designs in its monuments, statues and gardens.
