Hue
The royal capital for more than 140 years during the 19th and 20th centuries, Hue is a not to be missed city on any itinerary in Vietnam. It was a political, religious, and cultural center for the Nguyen dynasty, the last to rule the country before Vietnam proclaimed itself a republic in 1945. The city, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, features a dizzying array of tombs, pagodas, and monuments, but perhaps the most impressive, and certainly grandest, sight is the citadel. Surrounded by a moat and hefty stone walls, the citadel contains the Imperial City, with fortified ramparts, brightly painted pagodas and gateways, beautiful carved stone dragons, and a palpable sense of the history that unfolded here.
