Hue Overview

Hue is intimately connected to the imperial Nguyễn Dynasty, based in Hue, who ruled from 1802 to 1945, when the Emperor Bao Dai abdicated in favor of Ho Chi Minh’s revolutionary government. The places to visit include Imperial Citadel, tombs of the emperors, Dong Ba market and Huong river (literally Perfume river). Hue is famed for its Imperial cuisine, originally prepared for the emperor and his retinue. Although the emphasis is more on presentation than taste, an imperial banquet is well worth trying. The most famous local dish is “bún bò Huế”, a noodle soup served with slices of beef and lashings of chili oil.
