Hue was destroyed after the bombing by US during the Vietnam war. UNESCO is re-building the place back to its glory. The Citadel is testimony of Hue's importance as the capital of Nguyen empire and their might.

The most effective Tombs to see are Tu Duc and Khai Dinh. Tu Duc has a large amount of folks, though it's really exciting. You are able to see as the emperors left a spot for the wives as well as for the family on...More
