This is the entrance of Imperial City. As everyone is rushing in to pass the security they generally do not pay attention to the gate, so it would be a good idea to step back and enjoy the gate. You may spend only a minute...More

You can stop and check this out whenever you want, so if you'd like to get some good pictures of the city walls while you're visiting, this is a decent spot.

It’s the most important, and the most decorative, of the many (? 10-11) gates into the Imperial City of old Hue. It’s decorative accents are well known and recognizable.

To enter the imperial city you have to pass through this wonderful and impressive doorway. In front of it you also get the tickets and should take a Combi-Ticket to see the main imperial tombs!
