Hue Tours - Departing from Hue


Prior to WWII, Hue had been the capital of Vietnam and the residents of this city act as if Hue still is. The city has a long and distinguished history. During the Tet Offensive in 1968 the North Vietnamese flag flew from the citadel flag pole for 25 days. When the Americans returned to re-take the city, Hue was virtually destroyed in over ten days of terrible conflicts. The film "Full metal jacket" has much of the major fighting set in Hue, and accurately represents just how completely devastated the city was. It is estimated that over 10,000 people were killed during this battle including thousands of people rounded up by the North Vietnamese as 'undesirables' and shot or buried alive. The city has now been mainly rebuilt and no real signs of the Tet Offensive remain except for the virtual destruction of the Imperial city. Some highlights in Hue are Hue Citadel, The Imperial Tombs, Imperial City, Tomb of Tu Duc, Forbidden City, Tomb of Minh Mang, Tomb of Khai Dinh, Thien Mu Pagoda.
