Hue 

This gorgeous city is wedged between Hoi An and Hanoi. It is a magnificent heritage site because of the Imperial City and tombs that look more like palaces.

One of the best attractions this place has to offer is the Citadel. This fortress was once the core of the last imperial dynasty of Vietnam. A palace built for an emperor, it’s filled with intricately designed gates, temples and courtyards even the moat outside is full of beautiful water lilies.

Khai Dinh’s Royal Tomb

This tomb is unique compared to the other tombs because it was designed to be difficult to reach. The tomb was built on the side of a mountain. Once you reach the tomb, you must climb 127 steps just to get to the actual resting place of the monarch. 

From the distance, it looks like an imposing gray structure made with wrought iron and concrete, but it’s also wired with electricity, making it one of the most modern tombs in history. If you’re looking for a great workout, this place is for you.

My Son

The My Son Sanctuary was once the religious and political center for the capital of Champa. This beautiful sanctuary is located inside an elevated geological basin and surrounded by mountains. It has over 70 structures made to honor Hindu gods and goddesses. 

The site suffered heavy bombing during World War 2 and left many of the structures damaged. Thankfully, the remaining towers were repaired and restored to give us this breathtaking site.
