I wouldn't say the flag tower is a site worth setting out for to visit, but it's right next to the entrance of the citadel so you will easily see it when buying your tickets!

An area of the city steeped in ancient and modern history. The Vietnamese flag like a cherry on the top. It was tempting to hoist the marine corps globe and anchor on the flagpole, but I let it go.

You couldn't miss this one. Even 5km out of town it was still visible. But up close it is more impressive.

This is a flag tower with Vietnam nation flag. Our tour guide said, buildings around could not be higher than her. So the flag was astonishing and great. 這是一個立著越南國旗的高塔。 我們的導覽說附近的建築物都不得蓋得比這座塔還要高。 因此這面國旗更顯得雄偉與偉大。

We visited this attraction during our tour of Hue and the rest of Vietnam. The imperial city is a fantastic location to visit with many interesting buildings and stories. The old photos of bygon days were of particular interest.

This is the focal point of the Citadel. It was a focal point of all the fighting in the Tet offensive, changing hands many times. Really should just be included in any review of the Citadel itself

This tower that hoists the Vietnamese flag can be seen from miles around. From there it really shows its significance, but in reality it is the adjacent Imperial Citadel with the Forbidden Purple City that steals the show. OK, the flag tower has initial prominence...More
