HUE TRAVEL - GO BACK TO NATURE AND HEAL YOURSELF

Minh Mang Tomb Hue

I have been to Hue many times for work as well as for travel, each trip brought me different experiences and feelings.

Hue is famous for being the ancient capital of Vietnam and the resting place of the kings of the Nguyen Dynasty.

People will only think of historical sites such as the Citadel, mausoleums, temples, etc. 

But few people expect that, in addition to ancient historical sites, Hue also has green patches of pine forests and hills like Da Lat. 

Gia Long Tomb 

Vast rivers, quiet lakes like Tri An Lake, deep blue sea like Da Nang, especially with the best quality mineral springs in Vietnam, where Alba Wellness resort is located and managed by Fusion The world's leading resort hotel group. 

I have been to Hue more than ten times, this place is also the place of inspiration for my active and healthy lifestyle. I believe that when you are healthy, you enjoy life more, you will confidently do things that you have never dared to try before. 

Running beside Huong river

Every time I come to Hue, besides taking the time to check- in places and experience outdoor physical activities, I am also interested in resort activities to connect Body - Mind and Soul.

Therefore, I want to share my whole experience of going to Hue with all my students and friends. Hope this article will make you feel more excited when mentioning Hue.

Here are the outstanding places when visiting Hue city that you definitely cannot ignore.

Imperial City Of Hue - A place with a thousand years of history

Imperial City Of Hue

The Imperial Citadel of Hue is located right on the banks of the Perfume River. The place had kept many unique features of feudalism of the Nguyen dynasty for hundreds of years.

According to my Hue travel experience, you should visit this place in the spring, the weather is cool and fresh.

Minh Mang Tomb 

These monumental systems of mausoleums and palaces of kings all carry the typical art of the ancient dynasties. I enjoyed a cup of hot tea, in the peaceful and ancient setting of Cung Dien Tho

.

Thien Mu Pagoda - The spiritual symbol of Hue

Thien Mu Pagoda

Thien Mu Pagoda is considered a symbol of religion and spirituality in Hue. The temple has an extremely poetic scene, located in Ha Khe, Nguyen Phuc Nguyen street, Kim Long ward, Hue city.

Thanks to the beautiful terrain and charming space, this place has become an inspiration for poets to write lifelong works of art 

Lebadang Memory Space 

Lebadang Art Center

I was overwhelmed by the grandeur and magnificence of this huge work of art when I first came here.

A private contemporary art museum, the most magnificent, state-of-the-art and unique one in central Vietnam

The landscape architecture of the museum with an area of 16.000 square meters is a full–scale "Lebadang Space" artwork.

Lebadang Memory Space

• The paintings, sculptures, installations and "Space" artworks of the world-renowned artist Lebadang are periodically rotated with exhibition contents and display methods up to international standards.

• The museum is the realization of artist Lebadang’s dream about "an immense artwork, a cosmic landscape, a life in harmony with nature and towards eternity". • That the museum is located in Hue, the ancient capital of Vietnam, reveals his dream of Hue becoming the capital of Vietnamese contemporary art and culture in the 21st century.

The Perfume River (Huong River) - Hue’s romantic beauty

The Perfume River (Huong River)

Perfume River is the pride of local people, it has a mild climate and possesses a natural beauty that makes many tourists feel satisfied when visiting.

I often go to the Perfume River in both the morning and evening.

Because at Perfume River, whether morning or evening, there are unique activities, no one can refuse the elegant pleasures here.

SUP Surfing on Huong River

In the morning, I liked to paddle on the Perfume River, surrounded by cool fresh air, and the sun shines down on the river. I felt much more refreshed and excited after this activity

Hue Dragon Boat Trip On The Perfume River

In the evening, I enjoyed watching the Perfume River on a dragon boat. Since ancient times, dragon boats were only for nobles or kings and mandarins. And now, it has been widely popularized with dragon boat services on the Perfume River. On the boat, you will be served dinner with traditional delicacies of the Royal Palace, enjoy Hue folk songs and release lanterns to pray for the best.
