Hue Sites

We are travelling to Hue in Nov 2012. We are arriving in Hue at 1pm. During the afternoon, our itinerary has us seeing the Citadel, Tomb of Tuc Doc, Tomb of Khai Dinh, Dong Ba Market ending at 5pm. Next day starting at 8am we see tomb of Ming Mang and Thien Mu Pagoda. I think this sounds ambitious but not really sure. Cant change timing but thinking to missTu Doc tomb definitely and maybe miss pagoda next day? We are on a private tour and mix and match as we please. Any advice. Thx

Hey Pamela,

I rode the moto to Tu Duc tomb in the morning (last November), spent a few hours there (pretty amazing) and spent the afternoon in the Citadel. I was buggered and still did not see everything that I wanted to. (admittedly I got lost occassionally)

That is a pretty busy itinerary so pick a couple of things that you MUST SEE and really get the most out of them.

My thoughts only,

Hi Pamela

I think the first day if you arrive in Hue at 1pm you should see Old Citadel , Thien Mu Pagoda and Dong Ba market. Next morning starting anytime you want to visit Tu Duc tomb, Khai DInh, Minh Mang tomb.. ( if you do private tour is easy)

Other way if you fell tired when you are arrive in Hue city fist day you can relaxing ... or walk around river for sigh-seeing

Next morning you can enjoy Hue group city tour , they will take you to visit all nice places in Hue city such as Old Citadel, Pagoda , 3main tombs...

hope you have good time in hue

Hi Chrella. Thanks for question. We have organised our trip through a Vietnamese travel agent but on a private tour essentially with own car & driver so can choose which to do or not

Your itinerary will be better if you change alitte on the first day. You can visit the Tu Duc Tomb or Khai Dinh Tomb on the second day. They are on the same road to Minh Mang Tomb. If you like to see the Perfume River, you need to book a boat trip. It is very amazing.

Nice Trip

that seems to be a rush itinerary for the first day. here is my itinerary:

during afternoon: The citadel, Thien mu pagoda

next day: Ming mang tomb, Khai dinh tomb, Tu Duc tomb then you could see Dong ba market, luckily that you take a private tour so easier to visit.
