After pickup from your hotel, board your dragon boat and cruise down the Perfume River to visit the 7-story Thien Mu Pagoda. Continue to the UNESCO World Heritage Site, Hue Imperial City, and then explore the Forbidden Purple City and the imperial treasures in the Hue Antiquities Museum.
Next, visit vibrant Dong Ba Market, alive with sounds, colors, and scents, and taste traditional foods before a typical Hue-style lunch at a local restaurant. Admire two grand royal resting places, the Tomb of Minh Mang and the Tomb of Khai Dinh, and then discover traditional crafts at villages dedicated to making incense and conical hats.
If time and weather permits, catch sunset on the river before your transport returns to your hotel.
