Itinerary in Detail :
We visit the Hue Citadel and Imperial City, which will take us about 2 hours and a half. Then we board our dragon boat for a cruise upstream the legendary Perfume River. Along the way, we stop for Thien Mu pagoda, then continue to the rolling hills of the surrounding countryside where we find the elaborate mausoleum of emperor Tu Duc & Khai Dinh. Enjoy lunch with specialties at a local garden restaurant (note: this half day we go by car & boat).
In mid-afternoon leave the center of Hue and its historic buildings for a bicycle ride through the rice plantations and the bucolic Vietnamese countryside to the Thanh Toan Village, located eight kilometers away. The village shelters a covered bridge dating back more than two centuries; offered to the villagers by the wife of a high ranking Mandarin. Continue along the river with its banks dotted with temples. At the edge of the river banks the mothers wash their linen while their children are biking back home from school, many who will be astonished to see Westerners lost in this corner of countryside
