    What is the best time to visit Hue?

    • Angela

      The coastal area and delta of Vietnam has tropical climate with 2 distinct seasons. The dry season starts from March and ends in August with high temperature up to 40*C. The rain season runs from August to January with cooler temperature (around 19*C). The temperature is cooler in some mountainous and hilly areas.
      The best time for Hue travel is between March to August especially from March to April when the temperature and weather are comfortable. It is quite popular to meet fog and rainy weather in Hue even when some nearby province like Danang is sunny in this time.

  • Mohamed

    Could you suggest us having dinner on Perfumer River in Hue ancient? I will travel to Vietnam with my husband on the end of September.

    • Angela

      Yes, you and your husband will have dinner on floating restaurant in Perfumer River. It is a romantic place and you have opportunity to see Hue at night with the beauty of Huong River and Hue city.

    Hi there! I have seen many people coming back home with some photos in King’s or queen’s costume from their trip to Hue, Vietnam. What is that? How can we become a King or Queen in Hue Ancient Citadel?

    • Tracey

      When you visit Hue Imperial City, you will be the King or Queen. Visitors are encouraged to be king and queen for a day, trying out the costumes and a photo opportunity completed with a white horse and a carriage.

  • Iloilo

    I’m travel on my own package. Private cars are not included in my plan. But can I ask you a question that should I go to Vinh Moc tunnel from Hue?

    • Tracey

      o, you should not. The price for private car is quite expensive around 65 $ and the distance from Hue to Vinh Moc is very far you have to suffer 12 to 13 hours just for 30 minutes visit Vinh Moc tunnel. It is not recommended. However, the distance from Ho Chi Minh City to Vinh Moc tunnel is much more nearer. You should take the trip to Vinh Moc Tunnel from Ho Chi Minh City if you are really interested in DMZ.

  • Michael

    We are concern about weather in Hue for our trip in Vietnam in November. Could you tell me what the weather in Hue like in November?

    We have 2 week trips in Vietnam next month and we spend 1 for highlights in Vietnam center. We plan to visit Hoi An after trip in Hue. We are wondering should we get Hoi An from Hue by train or taxi?

    • Angela

      It depends. Both are good choice but there are some different. The train will bring you some sceneries of the coast while the cars go inland and higher up. The car may be better choice when you can stop wherever but it is more expensive.

If you prefer a quiet space you should go there during the winter months when the accommodation is quite decent.

Explore Hue By Bicycle

Thanks to less traffic than other major cities in Vietnam, Hue is one of the best city for cycling. The popular route is riding along Huong river, over the Truong Tien bridge, and into the 200 years old Citadel before heading to the city center to soak up a series of coffee shops, fashion boutique, motorbike repair store and hairdressers. Another perfect choice is riding around the suburb of Hue to admire a scenic landscape and enjoy the fresh air. Visitors also can join in a cycling tour riding from Danang, along the stunning coast road and climbing up to Hai Van pass. Riding about more 30km and stop at a sideroad restaurant to get a bite before heading to Hue. That ‘s such an amazing experience in your Hue itinerary!

Swim At Thuan An Beach

Located in Phu Vang district, Thuan An beach is an extremely enjoyable destination for travelers after a long day of exploring Hue attractions. It is also an ideal place to admire the pristine landscape, feel the fresh air, enjoy sea-bathing and relax. In addition, you and your friend can camp at the beach and visit Thai Duong temple which worships Thai Duong Godness and whale - a sacred animal of locals.

Jungle At Bach Ma National Park

Top 5 Mouthwatering Dishes You Must Try In Hue Tours

Hue-Style Beef Noodle Soup (Bun Bo Hue)

Bun Bo Hue is the most famous delicacy which you can taste in any sideroad restaurants in this elegant city. The ingredients to make this special dish include pork bones, noodle, lemongrass, red annatto-see-colored oil, shrimp paste, chili and different spices. A bow of Bun Bo Hue is a harmonious combination of pork knuckle, soft white noodles, fresh beef slices, a vibrant spicy broth, veggies, and the texture of the blood of duck. As with many Vietnamese noodle dishes, Bun Bo Hue is also served with a mountain of herbs, bean sprouts, shredded banana flower, shredded cabbage, and shredded lettuce.

Rice with clams (Com Hen)

You absolutely must taste rice with clams if you are in Hue. This dish is a mild combination of pork fat, onion, chili pepper, star fruit, Vietnamese coriander, mint, rice and taro stems. Stop at a sideroad restaurant to enjoy a bowl of “ com hen ” - the balance of saltiness, sweetness, sourness, and spiciness.

Hue Style Sweet Soup (Che Hue)

Hue Style Sweet Soup (Che Hue) is the perfect combination of condensed milk, mung bean, and jelly. Actually, there are various versions of Che which made from different ingredients such as black-eyed peas, tapioca, red kidney beans, lotus seeds, aloe vera, sesame seeds, jelly, taro, fruits like longan, jackfruit, mango durian, and lychee. If you have a chance to visit Hue City, make sure you will not miss four famous and unique versions of Che Hue including Che with lotus seed tastefully wrapped within longan, Che with purple sweet potatoes, Che with floating sticky rice cakes plus with shrimp, and Che with rice pastry and bean.

Wet Cakes Grilled Meat (Banh Uot Thit Nuong)

“Banh uot thit nuong” is a great specialty of Hue that tourists cannot miss when coming to the ancient capital land. To make the shell of this dessert, the locals will mix rice flour with chestnut starch or cassava starch in proper proportion. And then the shells are carefully wrapped in the roll, filled with grilled beef or pork and fresh herbs. Dip the rolls into the special sauce – a combination of Vietnamese fish sauce, freshly sliced chilies, lime juice and garlic to enjoy the perfect flavor of this delicacy.

Bloating Duckweed - Shaped Cake (Banh Beo)

Bloating duckweed – the shaped cake is simple, rustic but special with the attractive fragrant of rice flour, the sweetness of fried dried shrimp, and the spiciness of the dipping sauce. The name “Banh Beo” refers to the shape of the cake which is thin, rounded like the duckweed and you can easily realize that “banh beo” in Hue is thinner than that in other provinces.
