Hue City is the ancient capital of the Nguyen Dynasty – the last Dynasty in Vietnam. Hue Imperial City reflects the glorious and majestic reign of 13 Nguyen Emperors (1802 – 1945) who contributed in shaping the country into what it is today.

Unlike most ancient structures in Vietnam, Hue Citadel is one of the comparatively well-preserved imperial capitals whose walls, palaces, gates and royal tombs are still intact despite the fact that the city suffered the gruesome Tet Offensive.

Private car for sightseeing in Hue city offers the best way to explore the beautiful and historical city of Hue conveniently at your own pace. Carefully planned itinerary can be customizable depending on your condition and preferences. You will have full control over the time and places to visit during the tour.

Hue city tour by private car

The Hue City tour will be started at the time upon your request. Our driver will pick you up at your hotel lobby around Hue City . You can request for a tour guide during the Hue Sightseeing to fully benefit and learn more about the Imperial City of Hue.

Here are the top places you must visit during Hue Sightseeing with a Private Driver:

  • Thanh Toan Tile – roofed Bridge – an aesthetic tile-roofed wooden bridge that is similar to the famous Chinese-Japanese Bridge in Hoi An Ancient Town. The Thanh Toan Bridge is strategically built next to the local village market thus, you’ll see and interact with locals when visiting this place. There is also the Agricultural Tools Museum which displays the tools for local farmers to work on the rice field a long time ago.
  • Minh Mang Tomb – the royal tomb was designed and built for the second Nguyen Emperor, Minh Mang. The tomb reflects the values and ideals of the late “most loved” emperor and is considered as the most majestic of all the Royal Tombs in the country. Like no other, Minh Mang Tomb architecture mainly uses Asian Vietnamese designs that harmoniously blend with its natural surroundings.
  • Tu Duc Tomb: is called Khiem Mausoleum. It took 3 years from 1864 -1867 to build this by the fourth Emperor of the Nguyen Dynasty, Tu Duc. This tomb is quite different from others. It has many constructions like: small island with some animals for hunting, relaxing pavilion, small theatre, his mum’s room and  also has two more tombs inside: his adopted son (the seventh Emperor, Kien Phuc) and his wife. The tomb is divided into two areas: Temple and Tomb. This Emperor has some special things in his life: no children, longest time 36 years in the reign, stayed in his tomb 16 years before he died and no Emperor’s coffin inside this tomb. It’s more interesting when you visit it.
  • Khai Dinh Tomb – the most lavish of all the Royal Tombs. The 12th Nguyen Emperor Khai Dinh was keen on details and this is highly shown through his tomb. It is undeniably small in terms of area but the exquisite blend of Western and Eastern architecture makes the Khai Dinh Tomb one of the most visited tombs amongst all in the country 
  • Lunch could be anywhere within Hue city. Hue city is not as big as Hanoi or Ho Chi Minh but there are certainly a lot of great places to try out the Hue royal cuisine. You may ask your driver for a legit local food and restaurant recommendation.
  • Hue Citadel with Imperial City inside – the highlight of Hue Sightseeing and was recognized as a World Cultural Heritage Site in 1993. The Imperial city was home of the Nguyen Dynasty, the last royal family in Vietnam. The huge walled complex astonishingly survived too many battles and portions are being restored to their former glory. Make sure to explore every corner of the Imperial City and learn the ways of life of the Vietnamese royals.
  • Thien Mu Pagoda (Heaven Fairy Lady Pagoda) – one of the oldest pagodas in the city, was built in 1601 by Nguyen Hoang Lord. The seven-storey Phuoc Duyen Tower is a famous symbol of Thien Mu Pagoda. With the legend why Nguyen Hoang Lord decided to build this pagoda, the beautiful sightseeing with the serene and solemn ambiance beside Perfume River, it is one of the must visit places in Hue city.
  • Dong Ba market:  the largest commercial center in Hue city, was reconstructed in 1899 under Thanh Thai’s reign. It is located on the Huong river bank to the South West of the Imperial City on Tran Hung Dao street –  a main street of Hue city. If you want to go shopping or enjoy local food, this is the best place for multi items and food with reasonable prices.

The best way to end the Hue city tour would be the royal like, getting on a dragon boat cruise back to the city. Capturing the beautiful scene of the rustic yet mesmerizing Hue city and its residents before being dropped off at your hotel lobby.
