Some reasons to see hue on your vietnam vacation:
Unlike Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh cities, Hue Vietnam seems to have stood aside from the current economic development. Although the history was not so nice to Hue, it still has retained a unique cultural identity. Hue is a small, peaceful and countless romantic city, full of lakes, canals and lush vegetation. It is a great destination for Vietnam tours.
Hue was chosen to be the capital of Vietnam in 1802 under the Nguyen dynasty and continued its role until 1945. Hue was created on the model of the Forbiden city in Beijing with many palaces, temples inside. More recently the French culture has left a strong impression in the city.
In the Tet offensive of 1968, the city suffered considerable damage to its physical features. Many historical buildings were distroyed by American fire-power and bombings. After the war conclusion, many of the historic features were neglected. However, since Hue was recognised as world heritage site by UNESCO, some parts of the historic city have been restored.
