Hue, Vietnam, 2013

I had planned two nights in Hue, but reduced that to one due to time constraints.  I think it would actually also be fine to totally skip the town. There is not so much to see, I thought. Having said which, it is a quiet, relaxed town, which you can enjoy.  It would also have been easy to spend more time there, perhaps cycling out into the countryside a bit, too. It was inexpensive to stay, and to eat as well.  I enjoyed our soujourn there. Here are a few photos.

This is the main tourist attraction. Get there early in the morning and it’s peaceful. After 10AM the tourist hordes arrive in busloads. I don’t remember the opening time exactly – perhaps 6.30AM.
