Beyond History

Though Hue is most famous for its history, there’s still plenty to do once you’ve got your dose of the past. A great place to get a glimpse into local life is Dong Ba Market (Cho Dong Ba), which sells both exotic Vietnamese produce and clothes, while the natural scenery of the Perfume River provides a great place to relax—opt for a cruise on a dragon boat for a traditional experience.
