Hue

Hue

arriving in Vietnam's old capital, pretty much in the middle of the country

Location: 

Huế, Thua Thien Hue, Vietnam

Duration: 

Saturday, June 24, 2017

Personal highlights

  1. Hue City: important city in the middle of Vietnam, former capital city (1802-1945)
  2. Imperial City: former emperor's home, inspired by the Chinese Forbidden City
  3. Nguyen Dynasty: last ruling family of Vietnam until conquered by the French
  4. Taxi: very disappointing that Uber and Grab are only in Hanoi and Saigon!
  5. Weather: sweating so much after leaving the freezing Reunification Train
