  • What to bring: Light, breathable clothing and comfortable walking shoes. Don't forget your camera to capture memorable moments and a hat to protect you from the sun.


  • Take your time: Soak up the peaceful atmosphere of Huế by taking time to stop off at local cafés, sample authentic Vietnamese cuisine, and stroll along the banks of the Perfume River. Remember that traveling is also about taking the time to rest and savor every moment.
