About Hue

Hue is a former capital of Vietnam and home to the last Imperial Dynasty of Vietnam which ended in 1945 with the Emperor Bao Dai abdicating in favour of the Communist Government established in Ha Noi. The city’s connection to the last royal family of Vietnam is the main attraction for visitors to Hue who come to tour the Imperial Citadel of the Nguyễn Dynasty which is surrounded by a moat on the north bank of the Perfume River.

The site covers 4 square kilometres surrounded by water on four sides; on three sides of the Citadel there is a moat and on the south side the Perfume River. The citadel’s most famous features are it ornate gates, of which 10 remain today.
