Hué : Michelin's recommendations
Hué’s extraordinary Imperial City bears witness to the city’s former splendour as the capital of Vietnam from the early 19C to the abdication of Bao Dai in 1945. The city has also inherited a creative streak from this period, with fine craftwork produced by the descendents of the Emperor’s artisans and numerous cultural festivals taking place here. The beautiful landscapes of the surrounding hills and the Perfume River (song Huong) add to the attractions of this delightful city.
