CENTRAL VIETNAM TOUR
The short Central Vietnam Tour focuses on the main attractions of Huè and the ancient trading city of Hoi An.
It is perfect for those who only have a few days to spare or wish to extend their trip to other countries via direct flight connections to Danang. While the route is short, it does not miss any major artistic and historical highlights.
Visit Huè, the former capital of South Vietnam in 1744 and from 1802 to 1945 during the reign of the Nguyen Dynasty. It was founded in 1687, initially under the name Phu Xuan, along the banks of the Perfume River, which divides the city into two parts: on the left bank the Old City with its Citadel and imperial residences, and on the right bank the New City, once inhabited by Europeans. Hué is also known today as the gastronomic capital of Vietnam.
Explore Hoi An, the ancient trading centre, full of buildings with Chinese and Japanese artistic influences, evidence of a vibrant commercial past in the 2nd century AD. Surrounded by a variety of spectacular landscapes, Hoi An has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1999.
This suggested itinerary can be customised according to your travel needs as well as combined with other routes.

We spend the day visiting Hué, the former capital of South Vietnam in 1744 and from 1802 to 1945 during the reign of the Nguyen Dynasty.
It was founded in 1687, initially under the name Phu Xuan, along the banks of the Perfume River, which divides the city into two parts: on the left bank the Old City with the Citadel and the imperial residences, and on the right bank the New City, once inhabited by Europeans.
In 1802 it was renamed to its present name by Emperor Nguyen Anh. Hué is also known for its spectacular imperial tombs, ancient pagodas, temples and of course its fine cuisine.
We embark on a boat trip on the Huong River, better known as the Perfume River for the poetic view and fragrant aroma of the orchids that fall into the river in autumn. We visit the Thien Mu Pagoda, or “Pagoda of the Celestial Lady“, a symbol of Hué, built in the 17th century during the Le Dynasty.
