Unique Things to do in Hue

The former imperial city of the Nguyen dynasty, Hue's attractions and activities are heavily influenced by its royal history. The entire royal palace compund is one of the most popular attractions in Hue, and along with it many different architectural elements in the city are also characteristic of this era, transporting one back in time. Besides the buildings, even the culture, tradition and jobs are heavily influenced by the royal court. Throngs of craftsmen relocated here because of the insatiable royal demand for sophisticated art, bringing about a creative and artistic enclave made up of sculptors, artists, painters, carvers and all sorts of artisans, many of which still survive today, but are at risk of becoming extinct as the younger generation choose to leave for the bigger cities in search of fortune.
