Vietnam’s former imperial capital Hue is among the five must-go destinations in Southeast Asia listed by U.S. TV channel Discovery DCODE.
Hue was the seat of the Nguyen Dynasty which ruled the country from 1802 until the end of the feudal era in 1945.
"It is home to the glories of Vietnam’s feudal past with its Imperial Citadel and royal tombs that have made it a top tourist destination for years," says Discovery DCODE, which belongs to Discovery Channel.
It’s best to enjoy an authentic Vietnamese dinner while cruising down the iconic Perfume River, Discovery DCODE recommends.
"The chilly winter weather can also be a pleasant break from the usual sweltering Southeast Asian heat."
In the first 11 months of this year more than four million tourists visited Thua Thien-Hue Province, up 19.7 percent from a year ago, including 1.73 million foreigners.
Visitors from the Republic of Korea made up the largest group, accounting for a third of the total foreign visitors.-VNA
