If you are in Hue definitely go to the Imperial City and see all of it. There are amazing black and white photos showing past history as well as the beautiful buildings. Plenty of places to get drinks as well

I have to say that the Noon Gate is the most outstanding gate of Hue Imperial Palace. In the Nguyen Dynasty, they were paid more attention to the gate and consider this is the spirit of the Dynasty.It was used for important proclamations.

Our guide explained that people of different rank used different gates to enter, with some reserved for the Imperial family with elephants, some for workers, etc.

Is just majestic and the city is so much to see. Start wherever and get lost past the gate. You won't regret it.

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
