The city of Hue in central Vietnam is 654km from Hanoi. It used to be the ancient capital of the Nguyen Dynasties. The beautiful natural sceneries are not too magnificent and boasting but are gentle and romantic. In the City, the Perfume River is the most famous river. This is often called the mother river which gives birth and nurtures the soul and spirit of Hue people and their typical characteristics.

Life is difficult in Hue, and is mainly based on agriculture and traditional handicrafts. But in return, Hue people are very diligent and creative. Their creativity is demonstrated by the traditional craft products they make, or the cuisine and food they prepare.

Hue has two World Heritages to offer to tourists, the elegant (or royal court) music and complex of monuments.

The royal court music first appeared in Vietnam in the Tran dynasty (14th century), but it was until the Nguyen dynasty (late 18th century) which came into power then this new royal music was popular and became the official music serving emperors in Hue. Although the music was used in court, the composition and performers were mostly by ordinary musicians, folk artists. In 2003, Hue royal court music was recognized by UNESCO as a Masterpiece of the Oral and Intangible Humanity.

The complex of monuments was built by the Nguyen Dynasties. The Citadel of Hue owns a classical landscape with historical architectural site – the World Cultural Heritage. The Citadel is situated on the Northern bank of the Perfume River with an area of 500 ha and a system of three circles of ramparts which are Kinh Thanh (Capital Citadel), Hoang Thanh (Royal Citadel) and Tu Cam Thanh (Forbidden Citadel).
