You are welcomed by Viet Vision Travel tour guide & driver, who will be your traveling companions on this shore excursion, at Chan May port. Take a boat ride along the Perfume River upstream to start. Visit the majestic Thien Mu Pagoda, Hue’s most well-preserved religious structure, which has seven towers and is located by the river. The vintage Austin automobile in which Thich Quang Duc was driven to commit suicide in 1963 is specially housed at this pagoda.
The Imperial Citadel and Forbidden City, which were constructed in the 19th century for the Emperors of the Nguyen Dynasty, are still ahead. One of Vietnam’s seven UNESCO World Heritage Sites is this tourist destination. Behold the enormous castle enclosed by a wall and the historic palace featuring traditional Vietnamese design. In a lovely garden house, take in a traditional Hue lunch.
Visit the Royal Tomb of Emperor Khai Dinh, the most well-known and magnificent Royal Mausoleum in Vietnam, after that. Admire the Royal Tomb of Emperor Khai Dinh’s stunning oriental architecture. The tomb complex is very beautiful, with its old stone buildings exuding a strong sense of Vietnamese feudalism. Visit Dong Ba Market if you have time to practice your haggling. Returning to the port marks the end of the journey. Trip ends. Thanks for joining Vietnam shore excursion with us!
