Hours: 8am–6pm

Visit the Imperial City in Hue that was the former imperial capital of Vietnam. This impressive building was used for conducting businesses in early days as well as it was the home of the Emperors.

The Imperial Citadel is also known as “The Forbidden Purple City” and only the most important people had the permission to enter the building at that time.

Unfortunately some of the walls, gates and temples were damaged during the American – Vietnam War in 1968 however, it is definitely worth a visit to get an idea how it was back then.
