If you are a river person and this is something you do everywhere you go, then add this to your list. Otherwise for me, not so memorable.
We went on a short Dragon boat ride and I thought this was a very interesting 'working' river which was lovely to see, All the boats ladened with different produce going up and down the river. On a night it was lovely to walk by the river and we visited the night markets there which provided us with many bargains
Hue is split right down the middle by the Perfume River. Don't get confused, it doesn't smell like lilacs or orange peels, it smells like a river. However, it has an interesting history and is a beautiful walk along dragon boats and cyclists. Definitely worthwhile if you visit Hue.
We took a 60 minute cruise. It was a great way to see some of the country side with great views to the mountain in the distance. Be prepared to be badgered by the owners of the boat to buy their wares.

I wouldn't rate the river, but I guess if you were on a boat it might be fun. Anyway, If you are specifically keen... More
This place is certainly worth a visit. What is left is stunning, but unfortunately many of the buildings have disappeared (bombed by the US). They make every effort to re-establish the old buildings, but it takes a very long time and is very costly.
The perfume river was at high tide as a result of the Cyclone.Like to watch the locals buying fish on the bridge of the Perfume River.Wi Fi was freely available every where in Vietnam, Western Countries like Australia can take a tip from this vast developing Country, Vietnam
