Hue, Vietnam

Backed by the mountains of the Annamite Cordillera and set on the beautiful Perfume River, this is the best place to experience the country’s imperial past.

The last imperial family, the Nguyens, ruled under French protection from 1802 to 1945 and their mausoleums compete in scale and grandeur as they line the valley as it leads up to the hills. Lavishly squandering their country’s wealth and manpower, these mausoleums are amongst the country’s most poignant sights. They are not the only attractions here though.

You can board a boat and travel to the Thien Mu Pagoda, dating back to 1602 and surrounded by graceful gardens, or explore Hue’s more recent past: the former Demilitarized Zone, the atmospheric tunnels at Vinh Moc and the battle sites of Khe Sanh and the Citadel.
