To the Citadel…and beyond!
The day begins with a coffee or juice, where you’ll meet your tour guide at a local cafe. From here, scoot your way on Vespas to the famous Hue Citadel. Here, you’ll explore Hue’s Royal Palace and get to learn and imagine the daily life of the old Kings of Vietnam and also see why Hue was war-torn for centuries. After a 45 minute tour of the Hue Citadel, hop back on the Vespas for a short ride to a lesser known historic sight. Visit an old arena, modeled after Italy’s famous Colosseum, where tigers and elephants use to fight each other for more than just entertainment. From the arena, walk down a path to a temple used for worshipping those elephants. Then it’s back on the Vespa scooters for the most adventurous ride yet, through the rolling hills & pine forests on the outskirts of Hue. After a scenic stop for some photos, it’s off to the final stop for the day- Gia Long Royal Tomb. You’ll rarely see other tourists at this tomb, so you will feel complete peace while learning about the history here. Finish off the day with picnic style snacks overlooking a lotus-filled pond before heading back to your hotel.
