Hue Citadel (Dai Noi) Tours - page 4

star-5
18 Reviews
Hue Citadel (Dai Noi)
The renowned Hue Citadel (Da Noi) in Hue attracts history buffs from around the globe. The sprawling fortress, which was constructed in 1804 for the Gia Long Emperor, is surrounded by a 68-foot (21-meter) defensive barrier and is home to the tallest flagpole in Vietnam.
 
The Basics
Hue Citadel (Da Noi) is an integral part of many Hue sightseeing tours. For visitors with limited time in Hue, visiting the Citadel as part of a full-day tour that also stops at the Forbidden Purple City and the Tomb of Khai Dinh is a cost-effective and convenient option. If you’re passionate about history and want the opportunity to ask questions, exploring with a private guide is sure to enhance your experience.
 
Things to Know Before You Go
  • A must-visit for history buffs.
  • Hue Citadel (Da Noi) is mostly uncovered, so ensure you take a hat and sunscreen if you’re visiting during the afternoon.
  • Lots of walking is involved in a visit to the Citadel, so comfortable shoes are a must.
  • If you’d rather ride than walk, you can hire a rickshaw to take you around the entire complex; prices vary, so don’t be afraid to barter.
 
How to Get There
Hue Citadel is an easy walk from most hotels in Hue, and can also be reached by bike or taxi from the center of town. If you’re visiting Hue for the day from Da Nang or Hoi An, the Citadel is a 20- to 30-minute taxi ride from the train station depending on traffic.
 
When to Get There
The crowds that Hue Citadel (Da Noi) attracts are a testament to its popularity. Arrive first thing in the morning to beat the crowds and escape the midday sun.
 
Bring the History of Hue to Life
For most children, historical attractions aren’t particularly fun. At Hue Citadel (Da Noi), however, families traveling with children are in luck: This UNESCO World Heritage Site offers a virtual tour during a 4-D experience that transports visitors back to the 19th-century, when the Citadel was restored to its former opulence.

7 Days Discovery of Central Vietnam

7 Days Discovery of Central Vietnam

The Centre of Vietnam is the longest region of the country with over 1.000 kms from North to South. This region is encircled by mountains forming a natural border with Lao. Even if the Centre is less famous than Ha Noi, the Ha Long Bay or Ho Chi Minh City, it offers a very rich patrimony. Indeed, the Centre of Vietnam counts for four of the five national wonders registered to the UNESCO. Those are usually remains of the glorious past of Annam, the name given to this region under the French colonization. One of the most stunning sights to see in Central is My Son, Vietnam’s most important site of the ancient kingdom of Champa. Located in the heart of a beautiful valley and surrounded by high mountains ranges, My Son is around 80km from Da Nang city. Letters from the 4th century were found whist excavating My Son, revealing that complex for offerings and worship of the Hindu god. In 1999, UNESCO conservation protects cultural heritage world.
